The match will be played at Dubai International Stadium on September 21, 2021. During the 2nd leg, Rajasthan Royals are set to play a total of 7 matches.
Sanju Samson is the skipper of Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2021 and the wicketkeeper-batsman is leading an IPL side for the first time. With a century in the opening game against Punjab Kings, Sanju Samson executed a marvelous start to the tournament. However, his century could not bag a victory for the team in the match.
Rajasthan Royals have a piece of bad news in the 2nd leg. The team will be short of England stars Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, who will not be part of IPL 2021 UAE leg due to personal reasons. Moreover, England pacer Jofra Archer will be another crucial member who will not be part of RR as he has been ruled out of the field for the whole year 2021.
RR are placed on the 5th spot in the IPL 2021 points table. Out of 7 games, the team won 3 matches and lost 4. The Sanju Samson-led side has 6 points in their kitty. Rajasthan Royals managed to defeat Delhi Capitals, Kolkata Knight Riders, and Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, they lost against Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Punjab Kings, and Mumbai Indians.
Chris Morris has executed a commendable bowling show for Rajasthan Royals so far. In 7 games, Morris has picked 14 wickets to remain the 3rd highest wicket-taker in the tournament. Sanju Samson has scored the most runs for the team with 277 runs in 7 innings at an average of 46.16.
