Rajasthan Royals (RR) in IPL 2020

Rajasthan Royals have been waiting the longest to win their second Indian Premier League title, having won it in the very first edition itself. RR has always been a team that preferred players who get the job done rather than the superstars of the game. However, in search of that second title, they now have a mix of stars like Steve Smith, Ben Stokes, and Jos Butler along with impact players like Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat and Sanju Samson. Their performances in the recent seasons have not been up to the mark and tying up the loose ends to stitch together some strong results should be their ideal goal in IPL 2020.

Last Year’s Performance

RR had a season to forget last time due to their poor finish in the league stage. They managed to win just 5 matches and looked more like a bits and pieces team than anything else. Shreyas Gopal was probably the only performer worth mentioning, as he picked 20 wickets in the league stage. With the big guns like Smith, Samson, and Stokes not performing up to the mark, RR just could not post big enough scores on the board. In the bowling department, Jofra Archer bowled economically but did not have too much to show in the wickets’ column.

What can we Expect from RR in the 2020 season

RR, with their core of the team still intact, has filled the gaps with some smart buys in the shape of Robin Uthappa, David Miller, and Tom Curran. They will be under the scanner this time around, given their dismal performance last season. The senior players in the team will have to step it up and lead the team from the front. The least the fans would expect from them is a position in the playoffs.

Current Squad of Rajasthan Royals

All the players of RR are:

  • Mahipal Lomror
  • Manan Vohra
  • Riyan Parag
  • Steve Smith
  • Robin Uthappa

This year, there have been a few changes in the RR squad. The players of IPL fantasy cricket 2020 should note the changes and strategize accordingly while building their fantasy team for the matches of Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2020.

Latest Acquisitions

RR again went in with their usual strategy of making some smart buys instead of big-money signings. Since they had to part ways with Ajinkya Rahane, they bought Robin Uthappa as an option for the opening slot. They bought back Jaydev Unadkat for the price that was Rs 5.4 Crores cheaper than last season. RR also bought experienced T20 players like Andrew Tye, Tom Curran, David Miller and Oshane Thomas for less than that amount. All in all, RR bought 12 new players with the 17-year old Yashaswi Jaiswal being the big story of the auction as the son of a street hawker getting a life-altering contract of Rs.2.4 Crores.

Rajasthan Royals have a lot to prove in the IPL 2020 season with the reputation of a lot of players on line. With the right mix of experience, youth, and raw talent, they do look good on paper but it is about time that they deliver on the field as well.
