Rajasthan Royals (RR0 won the inaugural edition of the IPL in 2008 and they will be looking to have a good season under the newly appointed captain Sanju Samson. Rajasthan Royals broke the bank in the IPL Auction 2021 with a whopping 16.25 crore for Chris Morris, who became the most expensive player in IPL history.
Royals also bought Shivam Dube for 4.4 crores to strengthen their inexperienced Indian middle-order and they have let go of Steve Smith which wasn’t surprising with the Australian’s form in IPL 2020. Royals finished at the last position in the points table last year which they would be hoping to improve on.
IPL 2021: 5 Reasons Why Rajasthan Royals (RR) Can Win The Title This Year:
5. Strong Overseas Contignent
Rajasthan Royals have four world-class overseas players who can win games on their own. Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer, and Chris Morris are more likely to be the preferred overseas players due to their extraordinary abilities. Royals have always relied a lot on their overseas players from the past.
Royals have always lacked the backups for these strong overseas players, but this year they were wise enough to buy Mustafizur Rahman, Andrew Tye, Liam Livingstone, and David Miller who are in good touch and are raring to go.
