At the prime form
All the RR players have been exhibiting brilliance for the National side now. Rahane, Stokes, Smith, and Archer have been in their prime forms this season.
Youngster Sanju Samson has been at his brutal best in recent times as well.
Can they lead their side to the title in 2020? We will have to wait and see.
