The Indian Premier League is by far the toughest T20 league in the world. With multiple superstars trying their hand to impress the national selectors, the youngsters try to make it to the playing eleven. This makes this league one of its kind. Hence, the Indian Premier League is the best platform available to anybody.

Over the years, the Indian Premier League has witnessed the rise and fall of many cricketers. Talking about Chris Gayle, the Pandya brothers, and the rise of Bumrah, we have witnessed the rise of many cricketers. Adding on, the intensity and rivalry add a little spice to the competition. This is why IPL’s popularity has been increasing day by day.

One of the main sectors of the T20 format is batting. As T20 is a batsman-friendly game, the batsmen tend to dominate the bowlers. Hence, a team needs to pack up its playing eleven with as many power hitters as possible. We bring to you the prediction of the top run-getter for each team in the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League.

8. Rajasthan Royals: Sanju Samson

Sanju Samson came into the limelight when he scored consistently for the Royals. The wicket-keeper batsman was coached by the legend Rahul Dravid himself. Sanju has made it to the national squad multiple times, but lack of opportunity meant that he was unable to score freely. But, for a batsman early into his career, he can make it to the team.

Sanju has been consistent through his IPL career. Last year, he scored 375 runs with a brilliant strike rate of 158.89. Adding on, a strike rate of 148.69 in 2019 meant that he is a clean striker of the ball. Samson also has two hundred to his name. Therefore, he is the most vital member of the Rajasthan-based franchise. 

We predict that Sanju will be the top run-scorer for the Royals. The additional duties of captaincy might help him to realize that his wicket is priceless and he should not throw his wicket away cheaply. For a batsman of Sanju’s caliber, it is just a matter of time that he finds himself regularly in the playing eleven. Therefore, Sanju has the potential to become the top run-scorer for his team.
