The two main batsmen of the team are also the two wicketkeepers. Sanju Samson and Jos Butler are both experts in keeping the gloves for their respective countries. However, it is Samson who will be there behind the wickets for Rajasthan Royals.
Rajasthan Royals have been successful in roping in the experienced New Zealand fast bowler, Trent Boult for IPL 2022. However, the team do not have many options when it comes to their pace bowing.
