In what was the biggest talking point from IPL 2021 retention day, Rajasthan Royals let go of their incumbent skipper Steve Smith and announced that Sanju Samson will lead the franchise in the forthcoming edition. The decision left Twitterati split, with many questioning Samson’s credibility.
Congo Mallu on new job!🎉
Big news of the day!
Sanju Samson is the captain of Rajasthan Royals. First Malayali to become captain of an IPL team. Proud moment for malayali cricket fans.— Nahda T K (@Nahdatk123) January 20, 2021

Sad truth & yeah, STRANGE!!!
I think Roy will go to RCB who have released Finch. Maybe RCB might sign Steve Smith also.— Alankrith Shankar (@AlanzArena) January 20, 2021

#RR have released Steve Smith which probably makes sense. Stokes and Butler better value in the T20 game. Archer a must keep.— Rahul Puri (@rahulpuri) January 20, 2021
