- The Rajasthan Royals are seventh with 8 points
- Sanju has scored 452 runs in 11 games this season
- Sunrisers Hyderabad has won just two matches
Sanju, who has been fined twice this season for a low excess rate, was caught by the referee delaying his arrival in the area. When Kane Williamson took a while to get to the fold after Wriddhiman Saha’s departure, Sanju can be heard in Malayalam saying that my team is ready to go bowling. Sanju was signaling that the opposing team was wasting time.
A player who has been fined twice in a row will be expelled from the match if he repeats the error. To avoid this, Sanju drew the referee’s attention to the timing. Rajasthan lost the match. It was just the second win of the season for Sunrisers. The Hyderabad team exposed all the Royals’ weaknesses in the match.
The Rajasthan Royals have not been able to advance much this time. The team suffered a setback when a group of England players left the team. The lack of shape of the existing ones also contributes to defeat. Meanwhile, it has been one of Sanju’s best seasons as a hitter.
Sanju, who has already scored 452 runs in 11 games, is leading the fight for the Orange Cap. The Royals are currently seventh on the points table with eight points from 11 games.
With the defeat, Rajasthan’s play-off chances were dimmed
