Openers Jos Buttler and Devdud Paddikal have been a valuable addition to the team. Currently, Buttler is the highest run-scorer (218 runs) of the tournament so far. The depth in Rajasthan’s batting lineup is something the team takes pride in. Sheldon Hetmyer has been a blessing in disguise for the team and delivers important runs for the team.

Batter Shubhman Gill has come close to hitting a century in his first four matches. Gill has currently scored 187 runs with an average of 46.75.
The mix of experience and fresh players in the bowling division has proven to do the trick for Gujarat. Youngster Avesh Khan picked four wickets in one match and has pulled the team out of tough situations on more than one occasion.
