Jaipur: From a memorable hundred against Sunrisers Hyderabad, when he single-handedly helped Rajasthan Royals to score over 200 for the first time in the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Sanju Samson has had a phenomenal start to this season. If at all, one has to define him, his classic cover drives, picture-perfect straight drives, a delicate flick of the wrists sending the ball towards the boundary line and the unending hunger for runs would be sufficient to hail this gentleman who has conquered the Indian domestic circuit with utmost authority.In a freewheeling chat with News Nation, the 28-year-old opens about his second hundred and much more. Excerpts from the interview… Sanju, you have been a part of Rajasthan Royals’ since long now, and it wouldn’t be wrong to say that you’re one of the oldest members associated with the team. Does this add extra pressure or extra responsibility, how do you go about it?I think it’s a good space to be playing with the same team for a very long time now. So one gets used to the team structure, management, atmosphere which brings a lot of responsibilities to take on the culture and environment of the team. I am really enjoying it.Second hundred of IPL, where do you rate this one, seeing the time you came at the crease? Well, this one was a bit better one than the last one. Last came while playing in Pune, and the wicket was much flatter and easy to score. This one was comparatively on the slower side when we started. I think I will rate this one above the other. With two back to back matches at the home ground, do you see this as an opportunity to make a comeback?Obviously, it’s a big opportunity for us to come back to the table strongly. We have been playing good cricket at Sawai Mansingh, and we hope to continue. There are a lot of International players added to the squad who have captained their respective nations, is it a learning curve for you? Take us through what changed from last year to this year. Last year we had almost the same team to which we have now, but Steve Smith coming in and sharing the amount of experience he carries, it strengthens our team. And we always see Ajju Bhai (Ajinkya Rahane), Steve Bhai (Steve Smith), and Jos Buttler getting together on the ground and discussing in difficult situations and that brings out the best which helps us to make better decisions every time. It is known, that the likes of Smith, Stokes, Buttler will leave in the middle of the tournament. How is a team preparing to face challenges in the absence of them?Even before the tournament started, the team management and all the coaches addressed this point and I am sure we will be prepared to face that situation if at all it comes. We have much better bench strength than any other team and the main thing is we give every player that belief to prepare better for the tournament. We give equal time for practice and they all are taking care really well. When the time comes, we are sure that they will perform.Sourav Ganguly believes that you can be India’s number 4 for the forthcoming World Cup. How do you see this?It feels great but to be honest I need to work hard and score more runs. Final question, last year, Rajasthan Royals lost to KKR three times, knowing this, so how is the team planning to prepare for the upcoming game?The planning and preparation have always been the same, and it will be the same ahead. We will try to keep it simple against Kolkata Knight Riders and we are excited about the game.
USC’s administration requires all greek organizations on campus to adhere to a comprehensive code of regulations to better control parties and other large events.The 11-page list of event rules explains in detail the standards that USC plans to hold all of its fraternities and sororities to in a new format with clearer instructions and expectations. The list contains dozens of specific rules regarding monitoring party guests, limiting the number of guests allowed at events and controlling the consumption and serving of alcohol.Some of the rules involving guests specify that all events with alcohol must have a guest list, which is prepared and submitted to Fraternity and Sorority Leadership Development at least 24 hours before an event. The guest list must then be updated and resubmitted at least 48 hours after the event in order to account for any additional guests.The new rules also mandate that a bodyguard be hired for every 50 anticipated guests.Students have always had to register their parties in advance and all chapter leaders were informed of to the expectations in place when it came to alcohol, guests and permissions. The recently published guidelines are intended to complement the training provided to chapter officers.“The guidelines were developed to meet the health and wellness and safety needs of the community, aligned with industry standards for insurance and safety, national organization risk management standards and peer institutions,” said Jenell Lanski, director of the Office for Fraternity and Sorority Leadership Development.In the past, security was always present, but there was no minimum requirement of security guards. Also, fraternities often only submitted guest lists with male students for approval. This new policy adds onto the rule that prohibits using open Facebook groups or mass advertising to notify students of upcoming greek events. Instead, greek houses must take an invite-only approach to all future events.Though the newly published guidebook may seem stringent, according to Interfraternity Council Executive Vice President of Administrative Affairs Peter Roberson, these rule changes won’t change a lot about how fraternities and sororities operate.“Honestly, the rules haven’t really changed that much,” Roberson said. “Jenell and her team have mostly just strengthened a few rules and brought to light some old or forgotten ones.”
