Rajasthan Royals’ thumping seven-wicket win over Chennai Super Kings has injected a new sense of belief in the Sanju Samson-led team, who are currently place at the sixth position in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. If they manage to win their next two matches, the Rajasthan Royals have got a chance to qualify for the playoffs.
Rajasthan Royals will lock horns with Mumbai Indians on Tuesday at Sharjah.
However, Rajasthan Royals all-rounder Rahul Tewatia on Tuesday said that his team is not thinking about playoffs as they are taking one match at the time.
“All matches are important for us. We are not thinking anything like we win both the matches and enter the playoffs. We are just taking one match at a time. We want to give our hundred per cent and enjoy the game, like we did in our last match. This is what team director Kumar Sangakkara also suggested,” Tewatia said on Monday.
The 28-year-old said the Rohit Sharma-led side is a dangerous team on their given day. “Their middle order is really good, so is their top order. But we will try to play a smart game and win it,” he said.
The all-rounder further admitted that his performance has not been up to the mark in the season and said he will look to produce a better show to help his team.
“Yeah, our middle order is struggling and I take responsibility for that. I know my performances weren’t up to the mark with regards to the high expectations. However, I will put in the effort to improve the output in the next matches.”
