The Indian Premier League (IPL) is best known to increase fielding standards and each and every season fans, as well as cricketers, witness a few invigorating moments in the tournament. One such episode occurred when the Gujarat Titans (GT) skipper, Hardik Pandya ran his Rajasthan Royals (RR), Sanju Samson out during the 24th match of IPL 2022 at the DY Patil stadium.
Chasing a big target of 193, Rajasthan Royals lost 3 wickets early when the score was only 65 as both openers Jos Buttler and Devdutt Padikkal were back in the Pavillion along with Ravichandran Ashwin. Ashwin who bats at no. 8 was promoted to bat at number three in this game. Buttler scored a blitz 54 from 24 balls in his inning to help his side get off to a pretty good start against the Gujarat Titans. Ferguson removed him after he got to his fifty. The game between the two sides kept getting interesting as both teams were fighting really hard to secure a win.
After Ashwin departed skipper Sanju Samson Came out to bat and had a slow start. He scored 11 from 10 and got runout by Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya with his excellence in the field got rid of his counterpart with a direct throw which in the end broke the stumps which is an interesting sight in the game nowadays and ended Sanju Samson’s short stay at the crease. The umpires then, at that point, needed to bring another stump to replace the broken one. After the departure of Samson, wickets fell at regular intervals andRR just wandered along to fall short by 37 runs. Gujarat hit a roadblock in the last game however have motored along in this one. Rajasthan like most years proceeds to pause and start. No suppositions concerning who the Man of the Match will be!
