Notably, the Royals’ skipper had shortly grabbed the coin only some days in the past, when his aspect was in opposition to Punjab Kings.
It appears that Sanju Samson’s obsession with pocketing the toss cash isn’t going to finish quickly. The twelfth fixture of the Indian Premier League is on its means as the Rajasthan Royals (RR) and the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) taking a go at one another.
As the two captains got here out for the toss, MS Dhoni flipped the coin, which fell near Samson, who gained each the toss and the toss coin. Notably, the Royals’ skipper had shortly grabbed the coin solely a few days ago, when his aspect was in opposition to Punjab Kings.
Much in opposition to his childlike want to hold it as a possession, he revealed post-match that he was requested to return it as the match referee conveyed to him that it’s now allowed. On being requested the motive as to why did he hold it in the first place, Samson candidly responded about discovering the coin “really nice”.
“The coin looked really nice so I pocketed it. I asked the match-referee if I can have it, but he said no, it is now allowed,” Samson mentioned relating to the incident throughout the post-match presentation ceremony. Perhaps, seeing a special referee in the present sport, the skipper tried his luck again tonight as he picked it up and went straight to Simon Doull, the broadcaster, to convey his alternative having gained the toss.

Both RR, CSK with two factors
Speaking about each the groups’ performances up to now in the league, Chennai Super Kings got here again with a bang, defeating Punjab Kings by 6 wickets and 26 balls to spare, after they suffered a complete 7-wicket loss in opposition to the Delhi Capitals of their match opener.
The Royals, on the different hand, went down by merely 4 runs in a gut-wrenching affair in opposition to Punjab Kings, the place regardless of their skipper Samson’s magnificent effort with the bat (119 off merely 63), they went on to lose the sport on the final ball. Fortunes for them modified in opposition to the Delhi Capitals once they pulled off a miraculous victory from the jaws of defeat courtesy of David Miller and Chris Morris’ heroics.
