Sanju Samson's wife Charulatha takes a dig at the organizers of Star Sports during the Final


The most-awaited match of the season, IPL 2022 Final have been played between Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals. Talking about the game, Sanju Samson won the toss and decided to bat first.

Gujarat Titans had a great day on the field as they restricted the opposition for 130 runs. Jos Buttler has been the top scorer for Rajasthan Royals, scoring 39 runs for his team.

Yashasvi Jaiswal added 22 runs and others didn't much impressed with the bat. Chasing the target, Gujarat Titans lost their opener, Wriddhiman Saha, very early for just 5 runs. Matthew Wade also followed him with a single-digit number.

However, Hardik Pandya and Shubman Gill build a fabulous partnership in the middle and almost set the platform for the lower-order batters to finish the game. Likewise, after the dismissal of Hardik Pandya, David Miller took the charge and finished the game for his side.

We knew how to come back: Sanju Samson

After defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore in the second qualifier, Sanju Samson has shared a few words in the post-match presentation. "It was tough (after a loss in the last game), but we are used to bouncing back in the tournament. In IPL it's very normal that you go ups and downs throughout the tournament.

We lost a few games, we knew how to come back and we did really well. The wicket was a bit sticky and was helping the fast bowlers a bit, it had really good bounce and was easier playing the spinners," said Samson in the post-match presentation as quoted by Cricbuzz.

"We closed the innings really well, having DK and Maxi at the end we knew what they could do but having belief and composure in our skills is what got us through.

It (winning the toss) made it easier to win this game, toss plays a huge role and I think the wicket played completely different in the first and second innings. This is his (Obed McCoy) first IPL, he is very calm and composed and backs his strengths and we really trust him to do well," he added.

"Very grateful to have someone like Jos, and the way he is batting, touch-wood, we have one more game to go.

I was very young and it was the first IPL season and I remember playing an under-16 game somewhere in Kerala and I remember watching the last game with my friends and remember that last run where Shane Warne and Sohail Tanvir hit the run and they were running, it was a very vague memory which I have," he further added.

However, the wife of Sanju Samson shared a story on her Instagram handle and wrote, "Saw this animated video (of Star Sports) showing the race for IPL 2022 on the first day of IPL, and wondered why there wasn’t any pink jersey."
