IPL 2022 Final, GT vs RR: Rajasthan Royals have a lot of improvement to do in all areas, says Kumar Sangakkara

Kumar Sangakkara, the Director of cricket of Rajasthan Royals, had no qualms in accepting that the team needs “a lot of improvement to do in all areas” after losing the Indian Premier League 2022 final to Gujarat Titans.

The Royals went down against the Titans by seven wickets at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahemdabad.

“I think we have got a lot of improvement to do in all areas really,” Sangakkara said at the post-match press conference.

“If you really take our batting, we had huge contributions from Jos (Buttler), contributions from Sanju (Samson), and Shimron Hetmyer in the early stages. Riyan (Parag) and Devdutt (Padikkal) played well in patches, but in terms of overall performance, we need a little bit from the support-role players.”

Although Rajasthan Royals couldn’t cross the final hurdle, their players Buttler (863 runs) and Yuzvendra Chahal (27 wickets) ended up winning the Orange and Purple caps for most runs and most wickets in the season respectively.

“I think overall we have the purple cap, the orange cap, and as a team, we played extremely well. And I thought from the time we started the tournament to now, the guys have put in an amazing effort, so I am very very proud,” said the Sri Lankan great.

When asked why didn’t Rajasthan put Gujarat Titans into bat first after winning the toss, Sangakkara explained, “We were debating whether to put them in first as well.

“By the time we arrived at the ground, we looked at the pitch, it was pretty dry. And we thought it will get slower and maybe offer a little bit of turn for our spinners. So we expected to get about 160-165. We were really well set in our batting innings: 70 for 1 at the halfway mark. Then Sanju got out and then Hardik (Pandya) came on and bowled some beautiful overs and we let Gujarat back into the game.”

Gujarat Titans restricted Rajasthan Royals to 130/9, with Pandya taking three crucial wickets, including Buttler. The Titans then chased down the target with 11 balls to spare to lift the IPL trophy in their maiden season and in front of their home crowd.
