Sanju Samson made two blunders in the game against Gujarat Titans. He was first responsible for Yashasvi Jaiswal’s run-out and then played a reckless shot to leave Rajasthan Royals in a tough situation.

Former India player Mohammad Kaif slammed him for playing a loose stroke when the team was already two down.

He walked down the wicket to hit Joshua Little for a six but failed to connect the ball, which went high in the air and was caught by Hardik Pandya inside the 30-yard circle.

“What was the need for that shot? Rahul Tripathi made the same mistake yesterday against Kolkata Knight Riders, and SRH lost the game. He should have stayed, as RR were two down. It was a bad shot,” said Kaif.

Earlier, Samson won the toss and elected to bat first in Jaipur.
