11. Prasidh Krishna

Prasidh Krishna was one of the star performers in the first game against Sunrisers but did go for the runs in the second game against Mumbai Indians. The right-arm quick took the new ball and conceded a lot of boundaries at the start. However, he came back really well towards the back end and finished with 1 for 37 in his four overs.

10. Yuzvendra Chahal

Chahal had the chance of picking up his maiden IPL hattrick but Karun Nair dropped a sitter and spoiled the party of the leg spinner. He finished with 2 for 26 in his 4 over spell and continued his impressive run.

9. Trent Boult

Trent Boult swung it both ways with the new ball and bowled a really good length and line which tested the opening batters of the Mumbai Indians. The left-arm seamer finished with 1 for 29 in his four-over spell and picked up the important wicket of Ishan Kishan which turned the tide towards the Royals franchise.

8. Navdeep Saini

The speedster clocked more than 145 Kmph consistently and can be a potent option in the middle overs to pick up a wicket. Navdeep Saini bowled a superb final over against Kieron Pollard and finished with 2 for 36 in his 3 overs.

7. Ravichandran Ashwin

Ravichandran Ashwin has had decent outings so far in the tournament with the ball and has controlled the run flow in the middle, which has been a turning point as well. He finished with 1 for 30 in his four overs and has proved his worth in the side. 

6. Riyan Parag

Riyan Parag hasn't had many chances to prove his potential yet batting at number six but had taken some scintillating catches in the deep and has contributed with the ball if needed. The all-rounder from Assam has a calm head and will be crucial to the plans of the Royals once the business end of the tournament starts.

5. Shimron Hetmyer

Shimron Hetmyer has played two finishing cameos to perfection in the two games for the Royals and has been helping the side to big scores as well. The left-hander played yet another knock of a 14 ball 35 which included three fours and three sixes and he was striking at 250, which is incredible given that he started playing the finisher role only since the previous IPL season.

4. Devdutt Padikkal

Devdutt Padikkal played really well in the first game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad coming in at four, but he got the opportunity to bat at three in the previous game where he failed. The left-hander was dismissed for just seven despite looking good in his short stay at the crease. The youngster will be looking for a big inning in the upcoming fixture.

3. Sanju Samson (c & wk)

Sanju Samson meanwhile, has looked the best batter on show in both the outings and he has played a significant part to get his side to a huge total in both games. Continuing from his half-century from the first game, Samson hit a 21-ball 30 against the Mumbai Indians and he was the one who accelerated the innings.

2. Yashasvi Jaiswal

Yashasvi Jaiswal hasn't made the most of his opportunities so far in the two games but is likely to be backed considering his immense potential. The left-hander could manage just one run against Mumbai Indians and not a lot he could have done with the outstanding new-ball spell from Jasprit Bumrah.

1. Jos Buttler

Jos Buttler showed why he is rated one of the best T20 batters going around with a magnificent century against the Mumbai Indians in the previous game. The right-hander went hard against Basil Thampi in his first over and accumulated 26 in a single over.
