Rajasthan RoyalsAbout Rajasthan Royals Team (RR)

Rajasthan Royals was the winner of the inaugural season of the IPL in 2008 but this is the only title they have won so far. In the 2022 edition, Rajasthan Royals finished as the runner-up team and in the last season they missed the playoffs by just 1 win.

They have regained their form as a team from the last 2 seasons with the likes of Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shimron Hetmyer, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal by their side. For a long time they have been under-performing but we consider them a strong side now.

Expert Prediction

Expert Prediction for RR

Rajasthan has certainly levelled up after last season’s performance. They haven’t made big changes to their squad and have roped in more T20 performers like Adam Zampa. They can certainly reach the playoffs once again.

Can RR Win IPL 2024?

Rajasthan Royals is a strong squad equipped with destructive batters and damaging bowlers but they lack in the all-rounders category which is quite important for this format. They currently have Ravi Ashwin as a designated all-rounder but he is not considered among top all-rounders in this format or in IPL. He has a batting average of 13.22 in 197 IPL matches.

RR needs to find a perfect balance between batting and bowling and all the players need to be in a good touch to be able to score big totals and pick quick wickets.
