Sanju Samson fined for Rajasthan Royal's slow over-rate in clash against Gujarat Titans

Jaipur (Rajasthan) [India] : Rajasthan Royals skipper (RR) skipper Sanju Samson has been fined for slow over-rate in the match against Gujarat Titans (GT) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 on Wednesday. Rajasthan Royals lost the match on the last ball.

A fine half-century by Shubman Gill and brilliant finishing by Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan helped GT secure a thrilling three-wicket win over RR in their IPL 2024 clash at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Wednesday.

"Sanju Samson, the Rajasthan Royals captain, has been fined after his team maintained a slow over-rate during their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match against Gujarat Titans at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur on April 10," an IPL statement said.

Recapping the match, GT opted to bowl first after winning the toss. After losing Buttler and Jaiswal early, RR recovered with a massive 130-run third wicket stand between skipper Sanju Samson (68* in 38 balls, with seven fours and two sixes) and Riyan Parag (76 in 48 balls, with three fours and five sixes). RR posted 196/3 in 20 overs.

Rashid Khan (1/18) was the pick of the bowlers for GT. Umesh Yadav and Mohit Sharma also took a wicket each.
