The champions of the inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Rajasthan Royals are yet to reach the finals of the tournament since then. RR is amongst the best sides in terms of foreign players available ahead of the upcoming season.
The Steve Smith-led side will be looking forward to clinching their second IPL title in the 13th edition of the tournament. The Royals contain a perfect combination of young domestic players and explosive overseas megastars.
The Rajasthan-based franchise would be hoping of a dream run in the upcoming edition at the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Now, let’s look at the top 5 Rajasthan Royals players to watch out for in IPL 2020.
1. Yashaswi Jaiswal
Yashaswi Jaiswal got recognition around the world cricket after his heroics at the 2020 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup. After that performance, he earned a place in the Rajasthan Royals franchise and is most likely to open the batting for them.
2. Sanju Samson
Rajasthan Royals star batsman Sanju Samson has proved himself time and again in the Indian Premier League. Samson is currently out of the national side, and this season will play a pivotal role for him to make it to the Indian team.
3. Ben Stokes
Arguably the best all-rounder in international cricket, Ben Stokes is a genuine match-winner for any side. The Englishman has been in the best of his form lately and single-handedly won the World Cup final for his country in 2019.
4. Jofra Archer
Ace fast bowler Jofra Archer continues his association with the Rajasthan Royals in this season as well. His unorthodox style and lethal bowling make him one of the top Rajasthan Royals players to watch out for in IPL 2020.
5. Riyan Parag
Youngster Riyan Parag impressed everyone with his last year’s stint at the Royals. The 18-year old smashed 160 runs for them in IPL 2020 at a decent average of 32. With more experience and exposure this time, Parag looks in great touch.
