Sanju Samson reacts to consecutive losses

Sanju Samson did not shy away from acknowledging the team’s dip in momentum. He admitted that the team needed to take a step back and assess what was going wrong. The team’s defeat by Punjab Kings (PBKS), who were at the bottom of the IPL 2024 points table, was particularly disheartening.

The team’s performance on the field has been inconsistent. Last night, RR managed just 144 for 9 in 20 overs on a sluggish pitch at the Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati. PBKS chased down the target in just 18.5 overs despite losing four early wickets.

The losing streak has put RR’s position in the top two at risk. They were at the top of the points table with eight wins in their first nine matches, but four successive losses have jeopardized their standing.

The RR captain emphasized the need for individual players to step up during this crucial phase of the tournament. He stated, “To be very honest, we have to sit back and accept that we are going through some failures. You have to find out what’s not working well as a team. When you are getting to the business end, we need someone to raise their finger up and say I am going to win the game for the team. We have the players who can do that. If all of us try that. It’s a team sport, but this is the time when we need individual players to step up.”
