Samson also reflected on his team’s recent success (eight wins in ten matches), emphasized the importance of maintaining momentum.

However, RR’s batting lineup will be missing two key players – Shimron Hetmyer and Dhruv Jurel. According to the team management, both batters are sidelined due to “a small niggle” each, leaving them unavailable for the match.
