Wicketkeepers in race for T20 World Cup take spotlight in RR vs LSG clash

RR vs LSG: Sanju Samson, Dhruv Jurel, KL Rahul take centre stage as Wicketkeepers in race for T20 World Cup take spotlight

The Rajasthan Royals vs Lucknow Super Giants game in IPL 2024 is a highly exciting clash. Not just since it is a clash between two top teams, but because almost all of India’s keepers are playing the game. RR already boasts of having the likes of Sanju Samson and Dhruv Jurel. On the other hand, LSG is captained by KL Rahul.

The India Cricket Team‘s main priority is the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup. Currently a total of 5 players are in contention to take the keeper’s role for the Men in Blue. These include the likes of KL Rahul, Jitesh Sharma, Sanju Samson, Dhruv Jurel and Rishabh Pant.

KL Rahul is the designated keeper for the Indian team across all formats of the game. On the other hand, Jitesh Sharma is more or less confirmed of his spot in the team. Rishabh Pant is also in the mixes given his miraculous comeback and his able keeping heroics against Punjab Kings in the previous game.

But it is a long fight for Sanju Samson and Dhruv Jurel. Samson is there in the contention, vying for his chance. He is good behind the wicket and can hammer big shots with relative ease.

On the other hand, India’s new star boy Dhruv Jurel stole the headlines after his heroics in the IND vs ENG Test series. The 23-year-old keeper played 3 Test matches and fared well for the hosts. He managed to score 190 runs form 5 innings and scalped 5 catches and 2 stumpings against Three Lions.
