The New Zealand skipper missed the start of the season, but returned to the team and has scored one fifty so far this season in 7 innings. He now requires 1 six to reach 50 IPL sixes and he also needs just 17 runs to complete 1500 IPL runs.
Sharma has had mixed season so far. Although he has bowled some tight overs, he has taken just four wickets and has bowled at an economy rate of 7.58 in 6 matches. But the Panjab pacer will be keen to get more wickets as he inches a milestone and is a wicket away from completing 100 IPL wickets.
Samson started the season with a bang in the opening two matches, but has since faded, scoring 228 runs in 10 innings despite two fifties. He now eyes a milestone as he needs 55 runs to complete 2500 IPL runs.
Uthappa, who completed 4500 IPL earlier this campaign and has done well since he has opened the batting for Royals. He now eyes another milestones as he requires 1 four to complete 450 fours in IPL.
