England cricketer Kevin Pietersen believes that the responsibility of being the captain of Rajasthan Royals (RR) has affected Sanju Samson’s batting.
RR lost their second match of the second leg against Delhi Capitals (DC) on Monday. Although Samson scored a fifty, he lacked support at the other end.
“I absolutely love him as a batter. I think he is absolutely incredible. The way that he plays the pull shot, the way he can hit sixes, the way he manipulates the spinners around the ground and picks the gap.”
“When he scores a hundred, there aren’t many batsmen who are better to watch than him. It is just his inconsistency that you keep asking me about,” Kevin Pietersen reckoned.
Kevin also advised that Samson needs to do what KL Rahul does.
