New Delhi: Rajasthan Royals may retain captain Sanju Samson ahead of the 2021 Indian Premier League mega auction. According to a report released by ESPN Cricinfo, Rajasthan will spend around Rs 14 crore to retain Sanju.
Ahead of the 2022 IPL, a team can only retain a maximum of four players. There were rumors that Sanju would leave the Rajasthan Royals in the new season. Rajasthan’s new move is to reject all this.
Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju had a stellar performance last season. Rajasthan had earlier signed a contract with Sanju in 2018. At that time, the salary of the star was Rs 8 crore.
Apart from Sanju, Rajasthan will also retain Jose Butler, Liam Livingston and Yashaswi Jaiswal. No decision has been made on the injury to Joffre Archer. Not sure if Ben will keep Stokes either.
