IPL 2018: Rajasthan Royals Never Got Going – Mohammad Kaif
The inaugural champions of the Indian Premier League Rajasthan Royals started off their campaign in a sedate fashion.
Batting first they could only post 125 in their allotted 20 overs. Barring a half-century from Sanju Samson, Royals never found the feet and kept on losing wickets at regular intervals. Only Samson scored 49 of 42 deliveries before being dismissed by Shakib Al Hasan.
Former Indian batsman Mohammad Kaif stating about the condition of the match at the halfway mark said that apart from the 46 runs partnership Rajasthan never got going.
“Rajasthan Royals never got going apart from that 46 run partnership between Samson and Rahane. Like Dhoni spoke after the first match, they will be thinking if not winning, at least the quantum of loss shouldn’t be much to affect net run rate adversely,” Kaif wrote.
