Rajasthan Royals have had an amazing tournament on board this year. While they didn’t begin well, the Rajasthan franchise has still managed to stay alive in the tournament. They need to win all their remaining games in order to make it to the playoffs.

Shane Warne, the mentor of Rajasthan Royals is all set to bid adieu to India. As today happens to be the last day for him here, he took on a long Instagram post to thank everyone and describing what a great experience it had been for him to be a part of the IPL. He posted a picture of the Gateway Of India alongside the lengthy post.

The bowlers need a more aggressive mindset

Speaking about how the game has changed, Shane Warne stated various aspects regarding all the three departments. While he asserted that batsmen these days focused on power hitting, the bowlers needed to be more aggressive to get them early.

“The modern-day batsman in this form of the game has evolved into terrific innovative players with tremendous power. The bowlers need a more aggressive mindset & to think how am I getting the batsman out rather than think containment first. The ground fielding is super athletic & has improved out of sight but the overall catching can still improve !”

He further spoke about the players he has worked with in his stint with the Rajasthan Royals. He remarked that Jos Buttler needed to be given a chance in Test cricket. As for Stokes, he praised him for being dedicated. He further touted youngster Sanju Samson as the next big thing in Indian cricket alongside Rishabh Pant. Joffra Archer also earned praises from the legendary spinner.

“Jos Buttler has to play Test Match cricket for England as he’s a quality player. Ben Stokes has a quality work ethic. I’m looking forward to seeing him back playing international cricket. Sanju Samson will be the next big Indian superstar batsman along with Rishabh Pant. Joffra Archer will soon be the best fast bowler in the world.” Warne concluded on his Instagram post.

Unfortunately my last day being involved with the @rajasthanroyals today as I head back to Australia tmrw ! It’s been great fun being back involved with the #IPL as I had forgotten how intense, wonderful and great this tournament is. What have I learnt ? The modern day batsman in this form of the game have evolved into terrific innovative players with tremendous power. The bowlers need a more aggressive mindset & to think how am I getting the batsman out rather than think containment first. The ground fielding is super athletic & has improved out of sight – but the overall catching can still improve ! Lastly, a few thoughts looking ahead ! @josbuttler has to play Test Match cricket for England as he’s a quality player & what a difference he could make to the England test side ! Mr Root should demand he be picked. I’ve really enjoyed his compnay as he’s a quality person too. @stokesy is someone you want in the trenches with you & has a quality work ethic. I’m looking forward to seeing him back playing international cricket, he’s a bloody good man ! @shortyjnr23 will become an awesome all round cricketer for Australia & will surprise people with his bowling. @imsanjusamson will be the next big Indian superstar batsman along with Pant & J Archer will soon be the best fast bowler in the world !! Come on the Royals #hallabol
