  • Sanju Samson smashed crucial 82 runs on Monday. The innings comes after his unbeaten 70 against Delhi Capitals.
  • He has been rock solid with the bat but other RR batsmen have failed to contribute for RR. This is probably one of the main reasons behind RR lying in the bottom half of the points table.
  • Samson averages 60+ and bats at a strike rate of 141+ in the ongoing season of IPL. He was also the first player to smash a century in IPL 2021.
  • He is now the third batsman to complete 400 runs in IPL 2021 after Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul.
  • His back-to-back stellar knocks come weeks ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup amid consecutive failures from T20 WC bound MI batsmen SuryaKumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan.
