Sanju Samson(PTI)RR's captain Sanju Samson's performances mirrored the side's outings as well; after registering scores of 55 and 42 in the first two matches, Samson was dismissed on consecutive ducks in the next two. In the past 4-5 years, when I see him as a cricketer, I've always told him to perform in first-class cricket, not just IPL. “But in this IPL, the way Sanju got out in 2-3 matches straight... Gavaskar sir told him, 'give yourself at least 10 balls. When RR lost in one of their last matches in the league phase, Sanju said, 'no, my style is to play like this only'. Sreesanth further advised Samson to make the most out of the opportunities and improve his “mindset” while playing in the IPL.
