11. Tabraiz Shamsi
On the other hand, South African great Shamsi was roped in by RR midway as a replacement for Andrew Tye, and keeping in mind his potentials for the spin attack, he can be of the best use on the pitches of the UAE.
10. Chetan Sakariya
Young man Sakariya impressed people in his debut season and did well on the Sri Lanka tour as well and will most likely play with RR in their XI.
9. Jaydev Unadka
The experienced pacer of RR Jaydev Unadkat is expected to come up with some exclusive spells this time when he already stated that he was been working on some technicalities ahead of the UAE leg.
8. Rahul Tewatia
Talking about Tewatia, nobody can forget how he hit Sheldon Cottrell for five sixes in an over in IPL 2020 and he has shown on various occasions that he can get crucial breakthroughs for the team too.
7. Chris Morris
RR’s Chris Morris who became the costliest pick ever in the T20 league ahead of the IPL 2021 auction would have a lot of hopes on his shoulders both with bat and ball ahead of their opening game in the UAE.
6. Shivam Dube
Pace all-rounders are mostly in demand both in national teams or franchise cricket but Dube has not been able to stand upright on his reputation and will be expected to come up well this time.
5. Riyan Parag
On the other hand, young Parag will also be expected to contribute with his quickfire cameos if not for lengthy knock.
4. David Miller
It was only in 2020 that Miller was roped in by the RR franchise after being released by PBKS (then KXIP). However, he didn’t get his rightful chance in the last season but is highly expected to play along this time around.
3. Sanju Samson
While Samson is leading the side, he is expected to contribute majorly with the bat and if he is able to do that in the middle, things will ease out for RR.
2. Yashasvi Jaiswal
Jaiswal is yet to shine for RR in the manner he is expected to, he is being groomed well by the franchise and would be expected to chip in with few runs at the start.
1. Liam Livingstone
In his ODI debut against India in March 2021, he averaged 63 across the series, and being the new member of the RR team, they will be expecting him to replicate his wonders here.
