Rampant New Zealand annihilate Australia in a lopsided decider
7 Mar 2021
Rajasthan Royals have had a dismal run in the IPL 2021 so far having won just two matches out of the six games that they have played. Wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler has said that the team has been performing in phases but haven’t been able to win the matches.
“It's been a frustrating start to the season for us. We haven't had the results we would have liked. I think we've played well in phases but haven't been able to put games to bed with bat, ball or in the field," Buttler said.
Talking about the points table, the wicket-keeper batsman admitted that they need to get back to the winning ways as early as possible. RR are presently sitting at the seventh spot with just four points under their belt.
“We've let ourselves down in certain situations and given the points table we need to get it right as soon as possible to make sure that we're still challenging to make the playoffs."
RR handed over the captaincy to Sanju Samson ahead of the starting of the IPL 2021. Mentioning about Samson’s captaincy, the England cricketer said that he is very clear about what he wants from the team.
"Sanju's (Samson) been very consistent in his messaging and how he wants us to play, express ourselves and make sure we enjoy the tournament," said Buttler.
The Royals take on Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday in Delhi.
