In the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, Rajasthan Royals (RR) captain Sanju Samson needs to learn as much as he can from RR Director of Cricket and Sri Lanka legend Kumar Sangakkara. After releasing last season’s captain, Steve Smith, in January this year, the Rajasthan Royals appointed Samson as their captain for the 2021 IPL season. “Yes, I am very excited to take the helm of the Royals. There are a lot of different thoughts racing through my brain right now, but I’d like to keep it easy. I am delighted to accept this role “According to the Rajasthan Royals website, Samson said.
“Sanga’s cover drive was my first memory of him, and I admired his batting. This is a dream come true, and knowing that I’ll be working with a legend like Kumar Sangakkara was really thrilling “Samson remarked.
“People like Rahul Dravid, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, and Ricky Ponting are legendary of their own time. All was so well-balanced, that everything they did seemed to be flawless. In this IPL season, I’m looking forward to knowing everything there is to know about Sangakkara “Added he.
The IPL will kick off on April 9 with a match between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians. Rajasthan Royals will face Punjab Kings in their first game on April 12 in Mumbai.
