Jos Buttler (wk)
England cricketer Jos Buttler is struggling in this IPL 2021 as he has scored only 89 runs in five matches of this season. Apart from 25 runs against PBKS in their season opener, and 49 runs against CSK, Buttler failed to reach the double-digit scores in the other five innings.
Young Yashasvi Jaiswal played the last game where he scored 22 runs off 17 balls as he provided a crucial start against KKR. While opener Manan Vohra has hugely disappointed in this early IPL 2021, Jaiswal has made a positive start for his team this season.
Sanju Samson (C)
Captain Sanju Samson started this IPL 2021 with the incredible knock of 119 runs against PBKS but then he once again disappointed by failing to maintain that consistency in the next three games. In the last game against KKR, Samson took major responsibility in the chasing and his 42 not out helped Rajasthan Royals to secure that match strongly.
South African cricketer David Miller started this IPL 2021 with the knock of 62 runs, which was also his third consecutive 50+ score. After scoring 2 and a duck in the last two matches, Miller scored a match-winning 24 not out in the successful chasing against KKR.

Apart from scoring 46 runs against RCB, he also scored 23 runs against PBKS and crucial 22 runs against KKR.
Leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal has played two matches in this IPL 2021 but he has failed to pick up at least one wicket as spinners have struggled in the Mumbai pitches in this IPL season. As Rajasthan Royals have now shifted to Delhi, he can be a useful bowler for his team.

Bangladesh left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman has collected 4 wickets in five games of this IPL 2021. In Mumbai pitches, Mustafizur was in enough control as his economy rate of this tournament is 8.56. He can be a better performer for his team in the upcoming matches.
