2021 IPL: Predicting Most Valuable Players of each IPL 2021 team:
Rajasthan Royals (RR) – Sanju Samson
The former champions, Rajasthan Royals (RR) have never found it easy to remove the tag of underdogs, that was given to them when they lifted the inaugural IPL title in 2008. Since then the franchise has made multiple changes – be it on coaching styles, players, management – to bring back the happy days.
It never looked like a comfort zone for the Royals to be at the top in the points table. Rajasthan Royals have reached the top four in just three IPL seasons, removing the one which they won in 2008.
Ahead of the Vivo IPL 2021, Royals handed over the reins to young Sanju Samson after the franchise let go of Steve Smith due to his poor form. Samson on most occasions has done well for the team.
In the seven appearances, he has scored 277 runs with one century, which came in his captaincy debut game.
With the responsibility to lead his side, Samson will surely play with more sensitivity and calm. He has shown his composure in the first half of the tournament and will be hoping to do that in the second half as well.
