Kumar Sangakkara did not believe in the blame game as both success and failure are of a collective nature and the Rajasthan Royals team director has vehemently denied their IPL play-off hopes after another disappointing performance from his team.
The Royals put up another worst batting performance after the Delhi Capitals game to help Royal Challengers Bangalore win. The Royals are now seventh in the eight-team table.
“We do not play a slander game in our franchise. We win together, we lose together. We have not done enough, we do not have enough intelligence in our batting and we all know that. The players know that. So, we try to keep things simple, focus on training and how to execute what we say. We will plan, ”Sangakkara told a post-match press conference.
“We always keep things simple. There is a lot of pressure on the players. There is a lot of pressure in the game itself,” Sangakkara added.
For Sangakkara, his job is to guide the team rather than put more burden on the team.
“My job is not to add to it, but to guide them on how to deal with it and come up with their best performances,” he says.
Sangakkara needs a different angle to maintain the highest and lowest levels.
“There are many ways you can manage the frustrations of the highest wins and losses and you will be able to keep yourself calm and focus on what needs to be done.
“At times like this, it is very easy to get discouraged and break up into small groups, where the murmur starts but our group is well together,” the Sri Lankan batsman added.
The former Sri Lankan wicketkeeper also lauded captain Sanju Samson, who has long been selected in the national team.
“Yes, we chat with each other on a lot of things. When we talk about cricket, India’s aspirations come at the end of the IPL. And our chats are very much IPL-centric. Not only about his (Samson’s) batting, but also about the captaincy, the team and how we play. , ”Sangakkara added.
Shamson, who has scored 452 runs this season, is the highest run scorer for his franchise.
“He (Samson) is a very good player, a very special player. He has excelled exceptionally for us this season. And I am sure he has aspirations to play for India and at some point, I think he will be selected for a long time. He is always good and he He is ready when he is selected, ”Sangakkara signed.
