Sanju Samson made quite the splash in IPL 2021 after being named the new skipper of the Rajasthan Royals. Barring a brain fade against the Punjab Kings that somewhat overshadowed his brilliant counter-attacking hundred in the season opener, which they lost by four runs, things have looked positive for Samson.

However, he was dismissed cheaply in the second game against the Delhi Capitals. Samson will be keen to make amends and ahead of the game against the Chennai Super Kings, let's take a look at a few milestones the Kerala batsman can reach in this IPL.

Since his debut in 2013, Samson's gifted strokeplay and penchant for big scores has left fans in awe. He showed his intent to take his side to their second title win by slamming a hundred in the first game, which took him closer to reaching 3000 runs in the league.

Currently, Samson has 2707 runs at an average of 28.49 and a strike rate of 135.48. He has 13 fifties and three hundreds.

With Samson's rich vein of form, reaching 20 half-centuries is a possibility and that will indeed be a good record for the wicketkeeper-batsman to have.

He will be looking to take on MS Dhoni's men and cement his authority against the well-balanced CSK outfit with another staggering knock that further justifies his reason to be the newly-minted skipper of a young Rajasthan side.
