One masterstroke by Sanju Samson that helped RR win the game against Chennai Super Kings

Rajasthan Royals defeated Chennai Super Kings on Thursday to make the tournament more interesting. Actually, CSK could have chased the score of 203, considering the form that they were in. However, Sanju Samson pulled off a captaincy masterclass to deny CSK a comfortable chase. Here, we take a look at one masterstroke by Sanju Samson that helped RR win the game against Chennai Super Kings.

Sanju Samson comes up with a tactic that halts the chase of Chennai Super Kings

While RR dominated the game in the powerplay with the bat, CSK did not have the same result. Yes, they did not lose many wickets but they also did not score many runs. This had an eventual impact on the chase as it put pressure on the middle-order.

The actual reason is that Sanju took the pace off in the powerplay overs, making it hard for the batsmen to score when the ball is new and would come onto the bat. However, With the old ball stopping a bit, getting runs against pacers is not that easy and that is when the Kerala cricketer got his pacers into the game.


It was a brilliant game by Sanju because he won the game despite the absence of Trent Boult. This victory will give him and the team the confidence that they needed.

An open competition

With RR winning against CSK, it is clear that IPL 2023 is all set to go to the last day. Till now, no team has looked perfect and this has made things interesting for the fans.

The tournament recently completed its halfway stage. There is still a long way to go in the competition. With teams such as DC and KKR also winning games now, we cannot expect what will happen in the next few weeks of IPL 2023.
