Samson's 92 earns Rajasthan 19-run IPL win against Bangalore

IPL 2018: Sanju Samson shocks Twitter with super knock, fans ask 'why is he not playing for India' IPL 2018: Rajasthan beat Bangalore by 19 runs in 'Battle Royale'

In another reminder to the Indian selectors about his big hitting skills, the Kerala wicketkeeper-batsman smashed 10 sixes and two fours in an unbeaten 45-ball 92-run knock as the Royals piled up 217 for the loss of four wickets in 20 overs before handing the hosts a 19-run defeat.

Notably, it was also the first time a team had successfully defended a total of 10 full games this season. In-form KL Rahul who slammed the fastest 50 of the Indian Premier League at the Feroze Shah Kotla ground against Delhi Daredevils on Sunday, hit two sixes and a boundary in the first over of the game off Chris Woakes.

5- RR batters scored 88 runs in their last five overs and this is the second best in the history of IPL. Samson's contributed 58 to that tally. Virat Kohli stood apart with a good knock of 57 from 30 balls but his lone battle was surely not enough to get Bangalore over the line. Ajinkya Rahane's rotation of bowlers and exceptional fielding halted RCB's success at home.

On a day when 415 runs were scored, it were the leg-spinners on either side who held sway.

While he was on the losing team, Yuzvendra Chahal had reason to be pleased with his performance on an individual level.

The visitors never let RCB get back into the game and cruised to an easy victory in the end.

Opener Brendon Mc Cullum and skipper Virat Kohli will be looking to fire with the bat after missing out on scoring runs in the last match. The acceleration that followed was like a volcano blowing its lid. The adrenaline must've revved up heading towards the end of the innings, but Samson was still being very calculative. Instead, it was about sublime timing.

RCB are expected to continue with their young contingent of Washington Sundar and Mandeep Singh in the team, but Sarfaraz Khan may will have to make way for Murugan Ashwin if there is any late change in selections.

Two new batsmen were in the crease for RR, Samson and Stokes. He then greeted Stokes into the attack with a brace of fours: a rasping pull and a sliced drive.

On both occasions, he didn't deserve a wicket but Kohli and Ab de Villiers found fielders in deep while going hard at half-trackers. The South African got a reprieve when Jos Buttler missed a stumping chance and another run out opportunity when De Villiers.

Those blunders did not cost Royals much.

In came RCB's big gun de Villiers but Rajasthan chose to employ spinners Gowtham and Shreyas Gopal to force Kohli and de Villiers to go for power. His 40-ball innings was laced with two boundaries and four sixes.
