IPL 2022: Rajasthan Royals Team Profile
Rajasthan Royals (RR) is a franchise cricket team founded in 2008 and based in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
The Rajasthan Royals are known to have high potential and have won their inaugural IPL tournament in 2008 under the leadership of Captain Shane Warne. However, after that first victory, they have not been able to win again in the IPL following seasons.
In IPL 2022, this team is building a fresh team and a more efficient squad. They retained José Buttler for Rs. 10 crores, Sanju Samson for Rs. 14 crores, and Yashaswi Jaiswal for Rs. 4 crores. Sanju Samson led the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL tournament and become a team asset. This season, the 27-year-old will try his best to lead the team to victory.
Rajasthan Royals (RR): Strengths and Weaknesses
With the presence of Captain Samson, Buttler, and Jaiswal, the RR team is already in a pretty solid position and has a pretty promising squad. Daryl Mitchell, Shimron Hetmyer, and Karun Nair are relied on for the balance of left and right combinations.
In addition, the RR batting line also looks solid and their bowling with the addition of Chahal and R Ashwin top spinning bowling options. This combination of players makes the Rajasthan Royals look like a promising team in the tournament.
The Rajasthan Royals' weakness could emerge if this team fails to secure a string of victories. Apart from Neesham and Hetmyer, the Rajasthan Royals seem short of one player who can finish the game consistently.
