When the Rajasthan Royals captured Chennai Super Kings in their first match, opener Sanju Samson raised eyebrows once again and questioned why he might not be on the Indian team’s count. It cannot be ruled out that it is inconsistent, but the present India is not inconsistent either, or opposed to stability. Samson blasted CSK bowling and would come on Sunday, with Kings XI Punjab at their crosshairs. The Punjab organization will be hoping that their Seluting swinger, Sheldon Cottrell, adds an angle that can make it difficult for Memsen to make a stroke.
The youth of Kerala has been involved in IPL things for quite some time. He has played 94 matches and scored 2283 runs at a strike rate, 132.11 with two centuries.
Cottrell, on the other hand, is playing his first IPL, but has already impressed in two matches, taking four wickets at an economy rate of 5.85.
While this economy may be challenged in the coming days, there is no doubt that it has added an interesting angle to the KXIP attack and he may have a face-off with Samson.
