Rajasthan Royals (RR) are hosting Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the 65th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. RR have opted to bat first at their second home ground in Assam. A win here will keep RR in contention to finish in the top two. RR have already qualified for the second round.

Samson made his IPL debut in 2013. He did show early promise but was never able to score consistently. His inability to score consistently was often criticised by the experts. Samson has answered his critics and has scored more than 500 runs in 13 matches in IPL 2024.
He started his IPL career in 2013 and scored 206 runs in the season. The right-handed batsman followed up with 339 runs. He was handed his maiden India call-up after IPL 2014 and travelled to England with the white-ball team. Samson made his T20I debut in 2015.
Samson had a below-par IPL 2015 and only managed 204 runs in 14 matches. He represented Delhi Capitals (then known as Delhi Daredevils) in IPL 2016 and 2017. Samson scored 291 runs in his first season with Delhi and followed up with 386 runs.
Samson made his return to RR in the IPL 2018 mega-auction and scored 441 runs in the season. He followed up with 342 and 375 runs in the next two seasons, respectively.
He was bestowed with captaincy ahead of IPL 2021 and scored 484 runs in that season. In 2022, RR played their first final since 2008. Samson scored 458 runs in the season. He finished with 362 runs in IPL 2023.
Samson has performed consistently in IPL 2024 and has more than 500 runs. He will now aim to end RR's title wait. They last won the IPL title in 2008.
KKR have also qualified for playoffs
Apart from RR, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have also qualified for the IPL 2024 playoffs. The Shreyas Iyer-led side has 9 wins from 13 matches and sits at the top spot in the points table. KKR are confirmed to finish in the top two. They will face RR in their last league stage game on May 19.
