Vivo IPL 2021: The first champions of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Rajasthan Royals (RR) have found it tough to get going in the Indian league and have failed constantly to remove the irritating tag of underdogs. The franchise has managed to qualify for the playoffs just 4 times out of the 11 outings they did in the 13 seasons of the Indian Premier League.

In the recent Vivo IPL 2021 Phase 1, RR didn’t have an encouraging outing either. They are placed in fifth place after Mumbai Indians with 3 wins in seven games.

The Rajasthan based IPL franchise has heavily hanged on their overseas recruits, England players to be precise. The likes of Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and Jos Buttler in recent times have formed their core, which is certainly a disadvantage for the franchise as they eat up the overseas slots in the playing11.

Lewis was first picked by Mumbai Indians (MI) in the 2018 IPL auctions owing to his brilliant batting power and sensational hitting abilities. By the time he got picked in the IPL, he had smacked two T20I hundreds against India.
