Sanju Samson came into reckoning with his gritty knocks for Rajasthan Royals in his debut season for the franchise. The wicketkeeper-batsman from Kerala was groomed by Rahul Dravid into a tough campaigner. He joined the Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) squad in 2016 and played some crucial innings for the team during his two seasons with them before moving back to Rajasthan Royals. Sanju scored 342 runs in IPL 2019 and then followed it up with 375 runs in the IPL 2020. He was moved into senior position when named captain for the 2021 season. Now that he is into his 2nd season as the leader of the pack and with the addition of some established seniors joining RR, one can surely hope for an improved show from this team.
