In their pursuit of 155 runs, the Rajasthan Royals got off to a poor start, according to Kumar Sangakkara.

Make a note of it!


Kumar Sangakkara claimed that RR’s loss to DC was due to a poor start in the chase.

In their IPL 2021 match on Saturday, DC defeated RR by 33 runs.

DC was able to limit RR to 121/6 after posting 154/6.

A 33-run defeat to the Delhi Capitals was blamed on “careless” batting by Rajasthan Royals director of cricket Kumar Sangakkara.

A 33-run defeat to Delhi Capitals was blamed on Saturday on the “careless” approach of Rajasthan Royals Director of Cricket Kumar Sangakkara. After deciding to bat, RR bowled Delhi out for 154 in their 20 overs, but they could only manage 121 in theirs after being reduced to 48 for 4 in their first 10.2 overs. To restrict Delhi Capitals to 154, we needed to be disciplined in the first 10 overs of the game. ‘Unfortunately, Delhi came at us hard, they bowled smartly and we weren’t up to it,’ said Sangakkara at the post-match press conference.

In the first half of the IPL, the lower middle-order saved us from a lot of trouble, and I am confident that they will continue to do so throughout the season.

No one in the other end helped out Captain Sanju Samson, who made an unbeaten 70 off 53 balls.

When asked about the chase, Sangakkara said it shouldn’t have been possible with the batting he had, especially in the top-order and lower middle-order.

Evin Lewis and Chris Morris’ injuries forced Sangakkara and his teammates to make alterations to their starting lineup, according to Sangakkara.

Even though (Evin) Lewis and (Chris) Morris missed the game due to injury, the former Sri Lankan great said it is only a matter of time before they are back in action.

Not only must changes be made; everyone who participates must adhere to the rules, understand what’s going on, and be able to access the conditions.

Questioned about why Samson didn’t raise his game earlier, Sangakkara responded: “Well, it was a tough one for the skipper, he was batting so well. Unfortunately, losing wickets so frequently prevented Sanju from cutting free early on, which was all we needed.

As well as not allowing him to free his arms, Sangakkara credited the Delhi bowlers for keeping him in the game. In addition, the Delhi team’s bowlers performed admirably and intelligently, managing to bowl away from Sanju’s strong points.

South Africa’s David Miller, who was caught by Rishabh Pant off Ravichandra Ashwin in the fifth over, also failed to make the most of his opportunity.

As a natural attacker, that’s the shot Sangakkara said was up against a “really smart and willy” bowler with “a lot of experience,” so there was a trade-off to be made. Sangakkara said.

Taking such a risk after losing a couple of wickets isn’t ideal, but that’s T20 cricket, and it happens. You’ve just got to get smarter.

Indian Premier League (IPL) fast bowler Anrich Nortje, who returned with figures of 2 for 18, said that variations were important on a slower track like Abu Dhabi.

Compared to Dubai, it’s definitely more sedate. Playing a day game here means that anything can happen, and it’s going to be slow or very slow,” he explained.

Variations on good length are an excellent option, as is changing the grip on the ball to create a new variation. If all else fails, simply try to get a hit to the stumps.
