Sanju Samson equals Shane Warne’s illustrious record as captain after win over RCB in IPL 2024 Eliminator

Sanju Samson is enjoying a wonderful run in the ongoing 17th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as captain of Rajasthan Royals (RR).

Samson, 29, has guided the team into Qualifier 2 and therefore there is a genuine chance for the side to retain the title which they had won in the inaugural edition of the tournament in 2008 under Shane Warne’s leadership.

Notably, Rajasthan’s latest win over RCB in the Eliminator has helped Sanju equal an illustrious record that previously belonged to Warne.

Sanju has now registered the joint-most wins as captain for Rajasthan Royals. The Trivandrum-born now has 31 wins as captain of Rajasthan. On the other hand, Warne also led Royals to 31 triumphs during his tenure as captain from 2008 to 2011.

Samson has 31 wins in 60 matches with a win percentage of 51.66 whereas Warne led Royals in 56 games with a win percentage of 55.35%.
