Rajasthan Royals Captain Sanju Samson: ” We had fee funny instances from last year and this year while taking high catches. But I am really happy that everyone is eager to go and catch it.

The stadium is full of noise and we can’t look who is coming for the catch. I need to tell my fast bowlers that it’s easier to catch with the gloves and let me do it.

Against Punjab in the last 3-4 years, every game is very close. They bowled well, it was a funny game going from here to there. Hetmyer has been doing it for years and years, experience and composure is the key.”

Punjab Kings Captain Sam Curran: ” The wicket was a little slow, but we failed to start well with the bat and didn’t end well. It was a good effort from the lower order, getting to 150 was excellent.

The bowling was good, we kept things tight, but unfortunately another close loss. We stuck to our plans, bowled and fielded well, and I am confident we will bounce back in the next game.”
