Sanju Samson penalised heavily over code of conduct breach following defeat to Gujarat Titans

Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson has been penalised for maintaining a slow over-rate during their clash with Gujarat Titans on Wednesday (April 10) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.

Rajasthan who entered the game on the back of a four-match-long winning streak, tasted their first defeat of the 17th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as Titans held their nerve to sink them by three wickets in a nail-biting contest.Samson has been penalised Rs 12 lakh for the incident being the first of its kind for Rajasthan in the ongoing season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over rate offences.

Notably, Samson enjoyed a wonderful evening with the willow in hand as the Rajasthan skipper played an unbeaten 68-run knock off just 38 balls. The 29-year-old hammered seven fours and two sixes during his whirlwind innings and batted at a strike rate of 178.94 to take his side to 196 for the loss of three wickets in their 20 overs.
