Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals are facing off each other in match 32 of IPL 2021 in Dubai. KL Rahul won the toss and opted to bowl first. Royals started on a positive note and then lost two quick wickets. Sanju Samson was knicked off by Ishan Porel and the catch was completed by Rahul.

Sanju Samson was the second wicket to fall after Arshdeep Singh for 36. Ishan Porel gave away 24 runs in his first two overs and came back in his third to dismiss Samson. The Royals skipper has been in good form against Punjab since 2018 and has scored 600 runs against them in his IPL career.

Sanju Samson Dismissed For Four

Porel bowled a short delivery and Samson tried to hit him over the keeper but Rahul took a good jumping catch. This was a sort of comeback for Porel after he was spanked for runs in his first two overs.

“We’ll bowl first. It’s a no-brainer, a fresh wicket with grass on. We don’t know how it will play and I prefer chasing. I was just telling a few people in the dressing room that it just felt like yesterday that we were playing IPL 2020. We have a lot that we’ve learnt from last year. We are all professionals and we have tried hard in the heat to prefer ourselves. Pooran, Markram, Rashid and Allen are our overseas players. Unfortunately Chris Gayle misses out and Aiden has been in good form coming into our setup from Sri Lanka” Rahul said at the toss.

“We are good are chasing and setting totals, so we were happy to do both. We have really great talent and characters in our team. It is a very positive atmosphere. Sangakkara brings in the experience, he knows what to communicate at what point. He just wanted us to relax. Lewis, Livingstone, Morris and Mustafizur are our foreigners” said Samson.
