Rajasthan Royals Team Preview | People living in the basement last year, the new-look RR Eye Penthouse


After ending at the bottom in 2020, Rajasthan has the ambition to climb to the top with a new captain and director of cricket, and is the youngest player in the IPL.

It has been a testing trip for the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL. It was the champion – against all odds – in the 2008 inaugural edition. Last season, it was at the lowest rung.

So this time around, things can only get better for the team, giving a different look. This is a new captain in Sanju Samson, a new director of cricket at Kumar Sangakkara, the most expensive player in IPL history in Chris Morris, not to mention additions such as Shivam Dubey and Liam Livingstone; And there is no Steve Smith, captain for the last two seasons.

Archer shaped hole

Although the Royals management has time to think about re-jigging the top-order in the absence of an Australian run-machine, it probably won't make up for the huge vacuum created by the unavailability of Joffra Archer, at least for now. initial stages. The England star – could have undergone surgery on his right hand on Monday to complete a fast bowler as a T20 team.

Archer was not just the Royals' best cricketer last year, he was also the IPL's best – he was voted Most Valuable Player. His lethal spells were the main reason his team was at the end of the trade with a chance to make the playoffs.

In Archer's absence, Morris would face an attack. South African fast bowler Karthik Tyagi will be hoping for support from Jaydev Unadkat, Mustafizur Rahman and Andrew Tye, who impressed in their first IPL last year.

All-rounders Ben Stokes and Dube could also chip in with a few overs of pace. Leg-spinning all-rounder Rahul Tewatia, a revelation last year, and Shreyas Gopal may have a key role. The Royals will need big shots to blow the blades of Jose Butler, Samson – it will be interesting to see what effect the captaincy has on their batting – and Stokes. Yashasvi Jaiswal, Riyana Parag, David Miller, Livingstone, Mahipal Lomror and Manan Vohra also have quality in the supporting cast.

If royals need words of inspiration or knowledge, they have Sangakkara to turn to. If the man could offer so much in his commentary stance, imagine what he could do in team meetings! Can Samson and Sangakkara reverse the Royals' fortunes? We'll find out in a few weeks.
