RR's Manan Vohra hopes for improved performance in the second leg

Rajasthan Royals are currently fifth in the standings with six points from seven matches

Rajasthan Royals duo Manan Vohra and Mayank Markande are hoping to make the most of their chances when the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) resumes in UAE on September 19.

Vohra, who scored 1054 runs in 53 IPL matches at a strike-rate of over 130, said that he is disappointed with his performances this season.

"I was a little disappointed because I felt I couldn't capitalize on the starts that I got; however, it means that I had a lot of learnings from those outings and have prepared well for the second leg," Vohra, who scored 42 runs from four matches this edition, said in an official release.

Vohra also felt that the time has come for Royals to lift the trophy after last winning the inaugural edition in 2008.

"As a group, we are all looking to win the trophy. It has been a long time since the franchise has won it. The best thing is that everyone in our group believes that the team has the potential to make a mark once again. So, we're aiming for the cup but will be mindful of taking it game by game," Vohra said.

Leg-spinner Mayank Markande hoped spin will play a key role in the second leg.

"Our spinners had done a great job in the UAE last year, so I feel we're back to utilizing our strengths well. We feel really confident going into this phase," he said.

"When I first started playing IPL, I didn't have much experience. But when I play now, I feel I've matured both as a player and as a person. I think I'm mentally tough now and know how to deal with pressure, and bowl in challenging situations," Markande, who played one T20I for India in 2019, said.

Rajasthan Royals are currently fifth in the standings with six points from seven matches.
