Rajasthan Royals Team 2022

Rajasthan Royals Team 2022 had Rs.62 Crore in the wallet when biding for the Mega auction. The team already spent Rs.30 Crore in retaining the 3 players.

Sanju Samson – was retained by Rajasthan Royals Team 2022 for Rs.16 Crore. Sanju became noticed during his debut match in RR.

He was trained by all our favorite Rahul Dravid into a brilliant player.

There are no doubts regarding why Rajasthan Royals Team 2022 decided to retain him for this year’s IPL tournament.

Sanju is a player that every keralite is proud of and the next biggest thing in Kerala.

He is also predicted by many to be the successor of the great MS Dhoni as India’s gloveman.

Sanju still hasn’t reached his full potential in any matches played and many believe he has so much left to show in the ground.

This year sanju is set out to make a mark and hopefully bring back the trophy for the team as it is their top priority this season.

Jos Buttler – is another player retained by the Rajasthan Royals Team 2022 for Rs.10 Crore.

Jos is a player that needs no introduction, The right-handed batsman took a score 254 runs last IPL season and plans to score more this year.

During his first time as an opener when he played for the Rajasthan Royals in 201 8 is when he truly showed his form, he smashed 5 consecutive fifties in the playoffs to boost the RR. In 2019, he scored 3 half centuries in 8 innings for the RR.

Due to the lack of contribution from the supporting batsman, the team didn’t not make any good results that season.

The team has high hopes in this player thus the reasons to retain him this season.

Jos is planning to make a mark this IPL season and we could be expecting some great performance from this batsman.

Yashasvi Jaiswal – is the final player retained by the Rajasthan Royals Team 2022 for Rs.4 Crore. This young player is on to becoming one of the brightest players the cricket world to see.

He is the youngest Indian to score a List A Double Ton at the age of just 17.

In the 2020 India’s under 19 world cup campaign, Yashasvi managed to take a score of 400 runs.

As he joined the RR team in 2020 and couldn’t make much success in the last season, he is fired up and eager to make his mark this IPL season.

And the team has full faith on him to be a crucial part this season.

Sanju Samson is also the Rajasthan Royals Team 2022 Captain. Now I will be showing you the name of the players in the squad.
