Rajasthan Royals will have to make sure that they pick a lot of experienced Indian hands as they have been suffering a lot in the recent IPL years due to the lack of a strong Indian contingent. Sanju Samson had a good season in IPL 2021 and he is set to continue his captaincy for the upcoming seasons as well.
The next Indian retention could be one of Yashasvi Jaiswal or Chetan Sakariya while the other two obvious retentions are expected to be Jos Buttler and Jofra Archer. They do not have many Indian stars to have any dilemma in their retention and here are 3 big players who won’t be retained by Rajasthan Royals.
IPL 2022 Retention: 3 Big Players Who Won’t Be Retained By Rajasthan Royals
Ben Stokes is unlikely to feature in the retention list of Rajasthan Royals as they will be able to retain just two overseas players. The all-rounder was picked up for a big price in the 2018 auction by the franchise and his performances apart from rare instances of big knocks, have been quite unpleasing.
Stokes despite his unimpressive performances throughout the last three editions have been a big player in the side and the franchise has been building up the core with foreign players. However, with Archer and Buttler being two of the preferred overseas picks, Stokes might not be retained.
