Morgan praises Samson’s use of Parag at number four in IPL 2024, hails him as a standout captain

In a thrilling encounter between Rajasthan Royals and Gujarat Titans, Riyan Parag’s exceptional innings of 76 runs off 48 balls caught the attention of Eoin Morgan, who praised Sanju Samson’s captaincy for utilizing Parag effectively at number four. Parag’s partnership with Samson and impressive strike rate of 158.33 has boosted his IPL 2024 season.

Morgan emphasized the importance of captaincy in guiding young players like Parag to excel, highlighting Samson’s leadership skills. He also pointed out the struggles of Royal Challengers Bengaluru’s overseas batters and the need for them to perform consistently. Despite Virat Kohli’s strong performances, the team is still looking to find their rhythm.

Looking ahead, Morgan analyzed the situation of the Delhi Capitals and the missed opportunity of not promoting Tristan Stubbs in a recent game. Stubbs’ explosive innings of 71 runs off 25 balls showcased his potential, but the team needs to strategize better to maximize his power-hitting abilities. Morgan suggested batting Stubbs between four to six in the lineup for better results.

Overall, Morgan’s insights shed light on the crucial role of captaincy in maximizing player performance and strategizing effectively in the high-intensity matches of IPL 2024. As teams gear up for the upcoming fixtures, the focus remains on leveraging the strengths of key players to secure victories in the tournament.
