Rajasthan Royals (RR) have very few resources left after four overseas players are not available for the entire tournament now and they haven’t started the season well too. The new skipper Sanju Samson has had a mixed season and his century in the first game almost took them home in a daunting run chase against Punjab Kings.
So far, the Royals have won two of the five games so far and they are placed 7th in the points table. Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes are two huge names in the Royals set up and they are not available for the entire tournament due to injury while Andrew Tye and Liam Livingstone have pulled out of the IPL recently citing pandemic issues.
With the transfer window opening up, here are 5 players Rajasthan Royals can target in the mid-season transfer.
IPL 2021: 5 Players Rajasthan Royals (RR) Can Target In The Mid-Season Transfer:
Rajasthan is desperate for a finisher in their lineup and James Neesham could be the best possible replacement for someone like Ben Stokes in their lineup. Neesham can hit the long balls and he can be very useful with the ball as well. He will bring the much-needed balance into the team.
Mumbai Indians haven’t given an opportunity to Neesham yet and he is set to be on the sidelines throughout the tournament with Kieron Pollard holding his spot. It will be tough for Neesham to break into the Mumbai set up and he would rather get transferred to Rajasthan Royals who can rest Mutafizur and include Kartik Tyagi who hasn’t got a game.
