Rajasthan Royals Best Players
1. Sanju Samson
The best wicketkeeper of India and skipper of the RR squad, Sanju Samson, made his first debut at the age of 17, and there was no looking back after that. The team captain has many skills up his sleeves, either with the bat or behind the wickets. He scored 375 runs in the IPL 2020. While this season, Sanju has 452 runs under his name after 11 matches.
2. Chris Morris
Morris is one of those All-Rounders who can swing the ball even in the death overs. He’s a big hitter and can knock off the opponents with his bowling. Rajasthan Royals bought this South African Player for a significant amount in the auction of IPL 2021. RR always finds how to make one of the strongest Indian Premier League Squads, that’s why they always buy players and find young talents.
3. David Miller
David is a middle-order left-handed batsman, and without a doubt, he’s a one-man army. Fans haven’t yet forgotten his century over 38 balls in the IPL 2013. And even though Miller played only one match in 2020 IPL, the team and the fans have high hopes for him this season.
4. Jos Butler
This opening batsman joined Rajasthan Royals in 2018. He’s an excellent wicketkeeper and a batsman who made the strong squad and create the trust for bettors to bet and follow for live cricket betting rates in India. Fans do call him a destructive player. But unfortunately, Butler will be no more part of the team for the second phase of IPL.
