Rajasthan Royals bought Ben Stokes for a whopping amount of INR 12.5 crores. His performances, however, weren’t too satisfying, to say the least. He scored a century in IPL 2020 but besides that, there wasn’t any notable contribution with the bat.
England pacer, Jofra Archer has also been released by Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League. Archer was bought by Rajasthan Royals in the 2018 edition for 7.20 Crores. He was outstanding in all three seasons that he was part of. Jofra played 35 matches and picked 46 wickets at an impressive economy of an average of 7.13 and 21.32.
Archer was ruled out of the IPL 2021 due to an injury to his right elbow. Ahead of the Mega Auctions, Rajasthan Royals have decided to let go of their express fast bowler for next season.
