Strength

Rajasthan Royals team squad includes various dangerous and furious batsmen. Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes are the two most dominating players who can play against any team on the field, and the name Samson is worth mentioning.

South Africa, David Miller, and Morris are two other powerful strikers, and The All-Rounder Rahul Tewatia also proved his ability to hit the ball outside the field. We can’t forget about Sangakkara and his experience, which is an advantage for team Rajasthan Royals.
