Rajasthan Royals (RR) captain Sanju Samson and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) all-rounder Krunal Pandya were involved in a light-hearted moment during their IPL 2024 match in Jaipur on Sunday. The incident happened on the second ball of the sixth over of RR’s innings, with Riyan Parag in the middle alongside Samson. Parag mistimed his shot as Krunal’s delivery found the top edge of his bat. The ball ballooned toward the non-striker’s end. Krunal tried to complete a caught and bowled but Samson, who was at the non-striker’s end, stood his ground, denying Krunal a wicket in the process.

Despite the same, Krunal bear-hugged Samson in a light-hearted moment, which has gone viral on social media.

Coming back to the match, RR captain Samson won the toss and opted to bowl against LSG at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.

While speaking at the toss, Samson said that Riyan Parag will be their number four batter. He added that Rovman Powell could come as an impact player during the match.

“We would like to bat first today. Looks like a good batting wicket, we were ok to do both, but we’ve a different combination today. Coming back to Jaipur gives positive vibes in the dressing room. Riyan Parag will be our number 4, Jos, Hetty, Boult are there – Powell could come in as an impact player,” Samson said.

On the other hand, Rahul said that they would have batted first if they won the toss. The LSG skipper also confirmed that Quinton de Kock, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran and Naveen-ul-Haq are their four foreign players.

“We would have batted first as well, but the wicket does look good. I’m happy to be back on the field, injury has become my best friend over the last couple of years, but it makes you hungry and perform much better when you’re back. QdK, Pooran, Stoinis and Naveen-ul-Haq are our four overseas options. The focus is on this game for us at the moment,” Rahul said.

Rajasthan Royals Playing XI: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (Wk/C), Riyan Parag, Shimron Hetmyer, Dhruv Jurel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Sandeep Sharma, Avesh Khan, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal.
