The final match of the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League is currently going on at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Home team Gujarat Titans have been playing against the inaugural champions Rajasthan Royals in the all-important final. However, prior to the grand game, Sanju Samson’s wife Charulatha Remesh has taken an indirect dig at the organizers of the cash-rich league.
IPL 2022 started on March 26 with a game between the defending champions Chennai Super Kings and last season’s runners-up Kolkata Knight Riders. However, prior to the game began, host broadcaster Star Sports showed an animated promo on TV. While it was a race to the championship, there was no player from the Rajasthan Royals in that promo as well. And, after Rajasthan Royals qualified for the final, team captain Sanju Samson’s wife Charulatha Remesh shared that image from March 26 on her Instagram story.
She wrote: “Saw this animated video (of Star Sports) showing the race for IPL 2022 on the first day of IPL, and wondered why there wasn’t any pink jersey.”

Sanju Samson said after their last win: “It was tough (after a loss in the last game), but we are used to bouncing back in the tournament. In IPL it’s very normal that you go ups and downs throughout the tournament. We lost a few games, we knew how to come back and we did really well. The wicket was a bit sticky and was helping the fast bowlers a bit, it had really good bounce and was easier playing the spinners. We closed the innings really well, having DK and Maxi at the end we knew what they could do but having belief and composure in our skills is what got us through.”
“It (winning the toss) made it easier to win this game, toss plays a huge role and I think the wicket played completely different in the first and second innings. This is his (Obed McCoy) first IPL, he is very calm and composed and backs his strengths and we really trust him to do well. Very grateful to have someone like Jos, and the way he is batting, touch-wood, we have one more game to go. I was very young and it was the first IPL season and I remember playing an under-16 game somewhere in Kerala and I remember watching the last game with my friends and remember that last run where Shane Warne and Sohail Tanvir hit the run and they were running, it was a very vague memory which I have,” he concluded.
