Eoin Morgan’s KKR and Sanju Samson’s RR are facing each other today in the 18th match of the IPL 2021. Both teams are at the bottom in the points table and are desperate for a win.
But during the toss at Wankhede Stadium Mumbai, Sanju Samson made an embarrassing mistake.
Sanju forgot his teammate’s name which he remembered after some time. This became an embarrassing situation for him as the KKR’s captain Eoin Morgan and presenter Pommy Mbangwa started laughing.

In this match between KKR and RR, Sanj Samson won the toss and chose to field first. But when he was talking about the team selection, he said that 2 changes are made for today’s match.
He told that Jaydev Unadkat is in the playing 11 instead of Shreyas Gopal but forgot the name of the 2nd player.
Presenter Pommy Mbangwa then told him to take his time and tell the name. Sanju also looked at Eoin Morgan because before the toss, captains of both teams hand over the list of their playing 11.
But Morgan was also not able to help him.
After some time, Samson remembered and told that Yashasvi Jaiswal is included in the team replacing Manan Vohra.
Both Teams Are At The Bottom Of The Points Table
Meanwhile, KKR and RR are at the bottom of the points table. KKR also made 1 change in the playing 11 and included Shivam Mavi instead of Kamlesh Nagarkoti.
Both KKR and RR have played 4 matches each but have only 1 match each.
The winning team in today’s match will increase its position in the point’s table. But the losing team’s IPL 2021 journey will become very difficult.
