IPL 2021: Rajasthan Royals (RR) Schedule, Updated Time And Venue

Rajasthan Royals will kickstart their journey in the 2nd leg of IPL 2021 with the match against Punjab Kings. The match is going to be played in Dubai on September 21, 2021. During the UAE leg of IPL 2021, Rajasthan Royals will play a total of 7 matches.

Rajasthan Royals have a new skipper this season in the form of Sanju Samson. The right-handed batsman gave an astonishing start to the tournament with a century in the team’s opening game against Punjab Kings.

Rajasthan Royals suffered a big blow in the first leg after their prominent pacer Jofra Archer was ruled out of the tournament. Now, England start Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes are also not part of the UAE leg and their absence will definitely affect Rajasthan’s performance.
