IPL 2024: "If we had conceded couple less....": RR skipper Samson after loss to DC

New Delhi [India]: Following his side's 20 run loss to Delhi Capitals (DC), Rajasthan Royals (RR) skipper Sanju Samson said that the target was like 10 runs extra and his team could have conceded less boundaries.

A Sanju Samson masterclass almost won it for RR but DC bowlers held their nerves at death to get their sixth win of the season at home to keep their playoffs hopes alive.

Sanju said following the game, "I think we had it in our hands, it was like 11-12 runs per over, it was achievable, but these things happen in IPL. Yes, we are doing both things fine, we would like to stick to what the conditions demand, 220 was 10 runs extra to chase, if we had conceded a couple of less boundaries, we would have made it through."

"The DC opener (Fraser McGurk) came out and did what he has done through the tournament, we still came back well. We have lost three games but all those games have been really tight, we have been playing remarkably well, we have to do some fine-tuning and make a comeback, we need to keep the momentum going. You have to give credit to someone like (Tristan Stubbs) Stubbs who batted well against Sandeep, who has been bowling very well in the last 10-11 games, he scored 2-3 sixes extra against my best bowlers who are Yuzi Chahal and Sandeep Sharma. We have lost the game, we have to find out where we lost the game and we need to keep moving," he added.
