IPL 2021 Watch: Sanju Samson’s Fast Hands Removes Shreyas Iyer

Sanju Samson’s Rajasthan Royals are taking on Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Capitals in the first match of the double-header on Saturday. The Royals won the toss and opted to bowl first in Abu Dhabi on a brand new wicket. The Royals bowlers have kept a check on the scoring rate and chipped in with wickets as well.

The most recent wicket to fall was Shreyas Iyer. The former Delhi skipper was closing in on a fifty but was stumped by Samson. Iyer scored 53 off 32 balls playing particularly aggressively against the spinners. He and Pant shared a 62-run stand before the southpaw was dismissed. Iyer also followed soon after he was stumped by Samson.

Sanju Samson Wins Toss, Opts To Bowl

Both the captains at the toss wanted to bowl first which was a bit surprising given the hot and humid conditions and this being an afternoon game.

“We will bowl first. It’s a day game, it becomes easier to bat second. We have all settled down and moved on to this game, it was a complete team effort by everyone. Evin Lewis and Chris Morris miss out; Tabraiz Shamsi and David Miller are in. They have a balanced side, we are looking forward to an exciting game” Samson said as he won the toss.

” We were looking to bowl first as well, but it doesn’t matter. There will be a bit on the wicket in the day game. One change for us, Lalit Yadav replaces Marcus Stoinis. It’s good to be nearing a record, but we’re not looking at individual performances, not thinking too much about qualifying” said Pant.
