Rajasthan Royals Captain Sanju Samson special mention to R Ashwin for his delivery to Andre Russell against KKR in IPL 2022


427 runs, 15 wickets, a century, two half-centuries, a hat-trick and a fifer… all this happened in a match of the Indian Premier League i.e. IPL. Rajasthan Royals registered a spectacular victory against Kolkata Knight Riders in the 30th league match of IPL 2022. Jos Buttler with the bat and Yuzvendra Chahal with the ball were the heroes for Rajasthan Royals in this 7-run victory. Butler scored a century, while Chahal took five wickets including a hat-trick. However, Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson praised just one ball.

Actually, Rajasthan Royals, batting first after losing the toss, scored 217 for 5 on the basis of the stormy century of Jos Buttler. At the same time, in response to 218 runs, KKR’s team was all out for 210 runs. For KKR, 85 runs were scored by Shreyas Iyer and 58 runs by Aaron Finch. Yuzvendra Chahal took 5 wickets including a hat-trick for Rajasthan, but captain Sanju Samson praised R Ashwin’s ball in the post match presentation, on which Andre Russell got clean bowled on the first ball without opening an account.

In reply to 218 runs, in 13.3 overs, KKR made 149 runs for the loss of 3 wickets. Now Andre Russell came to the crease to play the first ball, but Ashwin, coming over the wicket, coming out from between the stumps and the umpire, threw the ball too wide and the carrom ball blew Andre Russell’s off-stump. Russell tried to push the ball with respect. On the basis of this wicket, Rajasthan Royals returned to the match and then Yuzvendra Chahal took Rajasthan closer to victory.
