IPL 2022 is all set to welcome 10 teams instead of 8, as two new franchises have been added to India’s franchise T20 league. As Lucknow and Ahmadabad are set to join the tournament from the next season, a mega auction will take place ahead of the tournament. Ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction, the current 8 teams can retain 4 players in their squad.

Under new skipper Sanju Samson, RR finished on the 7th spot in IPL 2021. However, the franchise does have some swashbuckling players in the squad and the franchise might retain them in the next season as well. Here we talk about the best-predicted list of players to be retained by Rajasthan Royals (RR) in IPL 2022.
IPL 2022 Retention: Best Predicted List Of Players To Be Retained By Rajasthan Royals
Sanju Samson is one player that RR can retain in IPL 2022. The franchise picked him as the skipper in IPL 2021. The wicketkeeper-batsman slammed a century in his debut game itself in the 2021 season.
In 14 matches, the 27-year-old player mustered 484 runs at an amazing average of 40.33, finishing as the top run-getter for RR and 6th highest in the tournament. Samson has given consistent batting performances for the team in the last few seasons and RR might keep him in the squad in next edition as well.
