Indian women’s cricket team opener Smriti Mandhana has said that she has started supporting Rajasthan Royals after watching Sanju Samson bat.

“The way young guys are batting is very inspirational to see. I think Sanju Samson, the way he is batting I have just become a huge fan of him. I have started supporting RR because of him. The way he is batting is crazy, next-level batting. I am thinking to learn from everyone who is batting and bowling well,” she told India Today.

“I am watching all the matches. I am quite biased with all the players and I have not got one team to support. I am not being diplomatic; I actually don’t have one team to support. I am supporting Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni,” Mandhana was quoted as saying to India Today.

Samson has been in sublime form so far in this edition of the IPL and has been hammering the bowlers with authority.

Earlier, Samson was also appreciated by former Australia leg-spinner Shane Warne. Warne said that the right-handed batsman has the ability to play for India across all formats if he does well in the IPL 2020.
