Rajasthan Royals has opted to continue with Sanju Samson as their captain for the upcoming edition of IPL. Samson had a brilliant season with the bat last year. In 14 matches, he managed to score 484 runs at an average of 40.33 and a strike rate of 136.72. He hit one century and two half-centuries during the tournament.

However, despite his heroics, the franchise finished at the bottom half of the point table. Ahead of a new season, Samson will be key to the team’s fortunes and is a prime contender for the orange cap winner. Overall, Samson has 3068 runs in 121 matches in his IPL career. He has three centuries in his IPL career and would be looking to add more this year.
