IPL Rajasthan Royals 2018 Team Players List
RR 2018 Team
Rajasthan Royals team for ipl 2018 is placed here. The Rajasthan Royals are back in the IPL after a two year suspension and they will be looking to make an impact as soon as they return. Prior to their suspension they had success in the competition, winning it in 2008 and finishing runners up in 2013. This is a big season for them, they have something to prove on their return and they need to build a squad that people are going to love watching. IPL RR team 2018 players list is placed below.
Steve Smith was the only player retained by Rajasthan but he is now unavailable for them. Smith has recently received a ban for his involvement in the Australian ball tampering investigation, so will not play in the IPL. His absence will be a big blow to the Royals, and other players are going to have to stand up in his absence and perform well.
Losing Smith at this late stage, just days before the tournament begins is a big blow for Rajasthan, and something they didn’t need going into their first season back from suspension. Someone in their team has to stand up and be the hero, it remains to be seen who that will be.
They went into the auction needing a lot of players, and as expected they were very active. However, it remains to be seen whether they have been able to put together a good enough team, they look to have a great middle order, but lack a star batsman to play alongside Smith at the top of the order, and their bowling looks a little weak.
Starting with the positives, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes and Stuart Binny are three fantastic middle order batsmen who are going to score huge runs at the death. They can all hit with huge power, and will really help this Royals team finish other teams off. Stokes and Binny can also contribute with the ball which makes them valuable assets, and Buttler will be keeping wicket for them.
The question will be for the Royals, can they take enough wickets to remain competitive? They appear to have a weaker bowling line up than most other teams, and this is going to be a huge test for them. If they fail, despite having many good, attacking batsmen, this could be a long season for them.
The fans in that region have had to wait two years to see some live cricket, and now they don’t have to wait much longer to see their team back in action. Rajasthan Royals players list 2018 will be placed below.
