In the UAE leg, Rajasthan Royals will be short of the likes of Jofra Archer, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes as all these England players will be unavailable for the tournament.

Under their new skipper Sanju Samson, RR will seek to win their 2nd title in the tournament. The franchise won the debut season in 2008 but has not managed to win the title again. The absence of England trio Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, and Jofra Archer will definitely haunt the franchise during the UAE leg.
