"I have batted in almost all positions in the batting line-up. I remember I had opened too for Rajasthan Royals. What matters is the strategy and composition of the playing XI."

Asked about the bigger ground in Jaipur and his team's plans to tackle the KKR spin attack, he said, "We are prepared for that, it is different ground and there has to be a change in the game plan. I would be starting from zero.

"Our plans are simple, we would be playing with same plan and energy. Jaipur is our fortress and we wish to continue with the winning streak here. The wicket too is familiar to us."

Rajasthan Royals has had a hectic schedule in the tournament, playing back to back games.

"The schedule for IPL is always hectic but we have to recover quickly, maintaining the spirit and taking rest," said Samson.
