IPL 2021: Rajasthan Royals Strength
Source: InsideSport

Winners of the very first season of IPL had a tough time last year. Fate was not in their favor and Rajasthan Royals ended up last at the table. Although this year they have strengthened their team at their best and spent an enormous amount of money at the auction. They had a record buy and spent 16.25 Crores to buy Chris Morris. Also, they had to let go skipper Steve Smith. This year they foresee RR to come back with a huge bounce and have their hands on the IPL trophy. Here below is the Rajasthan Royals IPL prediction and aggregate analysis of Rajasthan Royals.

Entire Crew:

The players that will play IPL 2020 in RR are Sanju Samson (captain), Mahipal

Lomror, Manan Vohra, Riyan Parag, Mayank Markande, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev

Unadkat, Kartik Tyagi, Rahul Tewatia, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Anuj Rawat, David Miller,

Jofra Archer, Andrew Tye, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, KC Cariappa, Chetan Sakariya, Chris Morris, Shivam Dube, Mustafizur Rahman, Liam Livingstone, Kuldip Yadav, Akash Singh.

Strengths:

Royals had to say goodbye to Steve Smith who was a skipper and after him, they name Sanju Samson as a skipper in the team. Although they lost a player but have a strong line-up. The strength of RR is actually due to match-winning cricketers like Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler. These players can surely rank their team-up. Also, their costliest but Chris Morris is expected to take the bowling line to the sky level.

Shortcomings:

This year most of the burden will be on the shoulders of Chris Morris and they will expect him to make them win. But we all know that Morris is prone to injury, and at a point, this might create distress for Rajasthan Royals. RR has a lack of bowlers and that is the primary concern for them. Jofra Archer was a godly bowler for RR last year, but because of injury, he is out of the tournament for this season. Bowling will remain a serious shortcoming for RR.

Top XI probable playing in IPL 2021:

Batsman:

Jo Butler did not meet his standards in the last season of IPL. He got 328 runs in 13 matches and this year we will see him opening the batting for RR. Yashasvi did not have a great career start; he played three matches and scored 40 runs. He will also be given a chance to play this year, too. We will see the captain of RR Sanju Samson at the third number. He had a good start last year but then lost his performance after the second half. He managed 375 runs in 14 innings.

Bowlers:

RR was in serious trouble as Jofra Archer underwent surgery before this year’s IPL season and they signed Mustafizur Rahman for their team. Although he is not as good at the new ball as Jofra Archer is but could be vital for death overs. Kartik Tyagi is an inexperienced player who got 9 wickets in 10 outings to his team. They think to replace Jaydev Unadkat in the starting eleven. Shreya Gopal got 10 wickets in 14 outings and had a high economy of 8.54 last year. He didn’t play well last year. Although he is the first choice of RR as a spinner and is expected to do best this year.

All-rounder:

Ben Stokes played only 8 matches and got 285 runs last season. He also did not bowl well as he got only two wickets and the economy was 10. Riyan Parag will come at number five and will be expected to play better than last year. RR picked Shivan Dube after being left by RCB. This player is both good at-bat and ball and has picked four wickets last year. Rahul Tewatia’s heroic actions of last year against Punjab where he hit five sixes is the highlight of last season. He got 10 wickets and 225 runs. Chriss Morris was the highest buy for RR this year and expects to take up the bowling burden as he picked up 11 wickets in 9 matches for RCB last season.

Rajasthan Royals IPL prediction 2021:

Although RR has strengthened their team’s way to the playoffs is tough. While a batsman can score for a team, a bowler can save runs for the team and this can stop them from winning.

Stay tuned for the latest IPL updates!!!
