'A Little Bit Of…': Sangakkara Explains What Derailed Royals' Campaign


Kumar Sangakkara, the former captain of the Rajasthan Royals, reveals the reasons behind the team's unsuccessful campaign in the IPL.


Injuries, lack of consistency, and poor team selection were some of the factors that derailed the Royals' journey in the tournament.


Despite having a strong squad, the Royals failed to perform as a unit and lacked the killer instinct to win crucial matches.


Sangakkara believes that the team's over-reliance on a few key players also proved to be a major downfall for the Royals.


The absence of star all-rounder Ben Stokes due to injury was a huge blow for the team and affected their balance.


Injuries to key players like Jofra Archer and Jos Buttler also disrupted the team's plans and forced them to make constant changes.


The Royals' inconsistent performances and inability to adapt to different conditions also played a major role in their downfall.


Despite having a strong start to the tournament, the Royals failed to maintain their momentum and lost crucial matches towards the end.


Sangakkara believes that the team needs to work on their mental strength and learn to handle pressure situations better in the future.


With a new season approaching, the Royals will be looking to rectify their mistakes and come back stronger in the next edition of the IPL.
