New Delhi, April 06, 2021.

Rajasthan Royals Star Sanju Samson was named the captain of Rajasthan Royals ahead of IPL 2021 after the franchise released Steve Smith before the auction in February this year. RR finished in last place in the league stage of IPL 2020 so Samson now has the responsibility of reviving the team’s fortunes this season.

The young wicketkeeper-batsman revealed that he couldn’t contain his excitement after the appointment and even got messages from Indian cricket stalwarts Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni.

“It was tough keeping it to myself. I got some nice congratulatory messages from Virat bhai, Rohit bhai and Mahi bhai
