IPL 2024 PBKS vs RR: Sanju Samson Needs “another Bowling Option” for RR After Loss Against PBKS

The 65th match of IPL 2024 was played between Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati.

Rajasthan has now lost 4 games in a row. Today’s match was won by Punjab Kings by a margin of 5 wickets. Rajasthan Royals won the toss, elected to bat and scored 144/9. PBKS managed to score 145 points and win the game.

With 16 points to their name, the Royals retain their second place in the points table. However, they can be surpassed by Sun Risers Hyderabad if SRH wins their other games. PBKS is in 9th place in the table with 10 points.

“It would have been nice to have another bowling option,” said Sanju Samson

RR captain Sanju Samson addressed the crowd after the game and regretted the team’s defeat. He added that the team might have needed another bowler.

“We needed a few more runs. I think we were 10-15 runs short. It was a 160-wicket of sorts. We would have easily achieved more than 160 (had we played better), but we lost the game. It would have been nice to have another bowling option. “I’m getting used to five top-class bowlers,” Samson said

Furthermore, he also accepted that the team has failed to deliver results in recent times and there is a need to figure out what is not working for the team.

“We have to sit back and accept that we are suffering failures and have lost four games in a row. I need to figure out what isn’t working for us as a team. Someone has to step up, we have so many match winners in the team. This is the time when we have to show character,” he added.

RR qualifies for the playoffs, Samson hopes they win the next games

With this, the Rajasthan Royals have qualified for the IPL 2024 playoffs.

The team that has held the top spot in the points table for so long could lose that spot if the players don’t return to form. Their form has completely deteriorated in the last few weeks, it was their fourth defeat in a row

RR holds second place in the table with 16 points, but they may not be the second team to finish. SRH will probably overtake RR if they win their next games.

Sanju Samson was confident about the team’s games and said, “We need to score more runs.” We thought 160-170 would have been a good result. We are not used to playing on such wickets this season where more than 200 can easily be scored. We had to play smart cricket today and build those partnerships. Hopefully the result will go our way (in the coming games).”
