Sanju Samson’s wife Charulatha Ramesh has hit out at Star Sports, the IPL 2022 broadcasters, for ignoring her husband’s franchise when creating visual social media posts about competing for the IPL 2022 championship.
The Rajasthan Royals, captained by Sanju Samson, advanced to the IPL 2022 finals after defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore by seven wickets in Qualifier 2. The Royals won nine of their 14 group games and finished second to the Gujarat Titans, who were the other finalists.
Sanju Samson’s wife takes a dig at IPL broadcasters
For the first time since the tournament’s inception in 2008, the Rajasthan Royals reached the final of the Indian Premier League. The Royal Challengers Bangalore were defeated by the RR in the season’s Qualifier 2 on Friday, winning by seven wickets at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
The Royals, led by Sanju Samson, were consistent throughout the season and qualified for the playoffs after finishing second in the standings.
Royals were considered contenders for the title before the season began, at least on paper; however, due to their poor track record in the tournament, they were not considered outright favorites.
And now, in an intriguing Instagram post, Samson’s wife Charulatha appears to have taken a shot at the Indian Premier League’s official broadcasters over one of their animation series produced prior to the season’s start. She shared a screenshot of the animation, which showed the season’s title contenders, including Rohit Sharma and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, as well as all of the other teams in the tournament except the Royals.
“Saw this animated video showing the race for IPL 2022 on the first day of IPL. And wondered why there wasn’t any pink jersey,” Charulatha wrote on her Instagram story.
Many people were skeptical of Samson’s leadership abilities at the start of the IPL 2022 season. All of the critics were wrong about the flamboyant middle-order batter. He has not only supported his teammates following a poor performance, but he has also instilled a sense of calm in the locker room.
