The journey of IPL 2019 is going to start soon and we are just 13 days away from the biggest cricket premier league. All franchise teams have started their preparations of the tournament and even the coaches have started suggesting players about the right advice. The Australian former captain Shane Warne who also led Rajasthan Royals in the first season of IPL and won the tournament has now become a brand ambassador of Rajasthan Royals.


Now the cricketer who was a part of IPL in the three seasons has predicted that Rajasthan Royals will be one of the favourites in this season. Shane Warne who is quite excited after being an ambassador of Rajasthan Royals also predicted that Royals batsman Sanju Samson would be the player of the tournament.


The talented star of Rajasthan Royals, Sanju Samson has played around 81 matches in IPL till now and he has scored around 2000 runs. Although, there is no doubt he is one of the finest talents in India but that is quite interesting that Shane Warne chose him over some great players like Steve Smith and others.


Let us tell you that Sanju Samson started his IPL career with Kolkata Knight Riders in 2012 but he did not get a chance to play in that season. In 2013, he was signed for Royals and he played his first match when Rajasthan Royals were chasing a score of 126 runs and he did great work with Rahane to win the match. In 2016, Delhi Daredevils bought Sanju Samson in 4.20 crores and he made his debut century in IPL against Rising Pune Supergiant by hitting 102 runs. However, in 2018 again Rajasthan Royals bought back to the batsman in their squad.
