I need to play 20 overs and finish games – Sanju Samson

I need to play 20 overs and finish games - Sanju Samson

“We know catches win matches. It’s a busy crowd out here. It’s not easy to communicate while the ball goes up. It happens in a match but we need to move on as we have a match day after,” Samson said.

Samson has now had three starts in this campaign, apart from his stellar hundred against the Rising Pune Supergiant and the 60 against KKR on Friday. On all those occasions, DD would have wanted him to carry on for longer and make the most of his strong form. His untimely dismissals have meant that the already young batting line-up has been put to test and has eventually wilted under pressure.

However, Samson didn’t put too much emphasis on pressure and offered a different perspective that such situations should bring the best out of his team. “We need pressure to perform in tough situations. Yes there’s pressure but we can use it in a positive way and use the pressure to perform. We are youngsters but have been playing in IPL for four to five years. We have enough experience to make the team win,” he felt.

“Most of our players are Under-25 and being with Rahul [Dravid] sir, youngsters like us learn a lot. He always backs us. That’s a great thing to have. We just want to perform and win matches for him.”
