Rajasthan Royals (RR) started out in 2022 with a list of goals for the new year, but quickly a brutal reality check by none other than Scott Styris. As for their “2022 goals”, the franchise expressed its hope of winning the Indian Premier League (IPL) title this year, receiving pending evaluations and moving up in Styris’ predicted rankings as well. Ahead of the UAE leg of IPL 2021, the former New Zealand cricketer had shared his power rankings for the season with fans and placed RR at the bottom and the team actually finished seventh out of eight franchises. So, looking at RR’s post, the 46-year-old former cricketer simply quipped, “At least make them realistic (wink emoji)”.

Here’s Styris’ reaction to Rajasthan’s goals for 2022:

Rajasthan, led by Sanju Samson, could win only five matches in IPL 2021 and went on to lose nine matches. For most of the season, the team remained in the bottom-half of the table and finished seventh ahead of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

Ahead of the upcoming IPL 2022 mega auction, RR has retained Samson, star wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler and young Yashasvi Jaiswal.


All eyes will be on Samson for the upcoming season and the 27-year-old will be proud.

Despite a disappointing IPL 2021 campaign, Samson found himself among the runs and finished sixth in the race for the Orange Cap. In 15 matches, he managed to score 484 runs with a high score of 119. Apart from a century, he also scored two half-centuries.
