  • Best Odds: 4.5 @ Indibet

The odds are in the favor of the skipper Sanju Samson to show some form in the match on Wednesday and take his team to their fourth consecutive win in the Indian Premier League 2023. Samson did not contribute much in the first four games as the opening batter Jos Buttler was the one scoring the plethora of runs for the team. However, the skipper finally showed his batting prowess in the game against Gujarat Titans. Rajasthan Royals looked in trouble in their last game after losing early wickets when they were chasing 178 runs in the allotted 20 overs. However, the team did not have much to worry about as the captain led from the front. Sanju faced a total of 32 balls in the middle and hammered 60 runs with the help of six maximums and three boundaries at a strike rate of 187.5. The 28-year-old will be excited to continue the excellent form.
