1. Yashasvi Jaiswal

2. Mahipal Lomror
The middle-order batsman has displayed fine ball-striking capabilities in UAE and has a track record of performing well in crunch situations. In the last league match, Lomror struck an unbeaten 29 off 28 balls and would look to improve his strike rate.
3. Evin Lewis
The West Indies player has been one of the best strikers of the cricket ball and is coming into the tournament after a fine CPL season. In the last league match, he could not not perform well but his performances in this format in the recent tournaments can not be ignored and can be the differential pick.
4. Sanju Samson
The orange cap holder Sanju Samson will be the best pick from the Rajasthan Royals side due to his consistent performances in the last few league matches. He has been a lone warrior for the side and will look to maintain the same form. In 10 matches, Sanju has amassed 433 runs at an average of 54.12.
