Sanju Samson

Though Rajasthan Royals wasn’t able to make a larger impact in the league lately, skipper Sanju Samson has been exceptional for the side. In the previous edition of the tournament, he scored 484 runs from 14 matches at an average of 40.33. About his captaincy, Samson brings in certain ease and calm in his approach and the franchise will pin a lot of hope on him to keep performing for the side.

It is understood that he will continue as the captain of the side. Samson had joined the Royals in 2018 and was handed over the leadership duties. Though the team couldn’t advance to the play-offs, the keeper-batter finished the season on a personal high note.

Jos Buttler

Whereas on the other hand, England’s star keeper-batter Jos Buttler has also been retained by RR. The swashbuckling batter always adds more value to any team he features for.
