Earlier, Samson won the toss and opted to bat first in the finals of the Indian Premier League 2022 against Gujarat Titans.
“We will bat first. Looks like a good wicket, a bit dry and that’s why we’ll bat first, it’s a used wicket and might help our spinners in the second innings. We’re all positive and excited. Playing in front of this crowd is exciting. Same team for us,” said Samson after winning the toss.
