IPL Rajasthan Royals 2021 Team Players List
RR 2021 Team
Rajasthan Royals team for IPL 2021 is placed here. Rajasthan Royals have been the perennial underachievers of the IPL since they won that first title in 2008. Since then they have actually struggled to get going, having made the playoffs just three times and never entered the final. IPL RR team 2021 players list is placed below.
It was one of their worst seasons last year, what with the Royals finishing seventh in the tournament. They ended level on points with the bottom-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore, but on the positive side, one more point would have gotten them tied on the fourth spot. In IPL 2020, Rajasthan Royals will play two of their home games in Guwahati.
Last season, the Royals were led by Ajinkya Rahane for the most part of the tournament but towards the end, Steven Smith took over the leadership. They also have Ben Stokes in a leadership role after a brilliant showing at the World Cup and the Ashes series in the two other formats he has been proficient at, the Royals would hope he can get going for them too. Steve Smith won’t be available for the first game as he will be representing Australia in a limited-overs series against New Zealand that will end on March 29th. Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes are the other players who will miss the major part of the tournament as they will be playing for the national side in a series against Sri Lanka. They may also be unavailable for playoffs – if Rajasthan qualify.
Sanju Samson continues to impress and there were recent talks of him making the India squad even, while Jos Buttler adds a lot of spunk to the top-order.
As far as their bowling is concerned, Jofra Archer’s another of those players who had a fascinating few months for England at the World Cup and the Ashes and he could well be the match-winning the Royals so want. But unfortunately, he will be missing this year’s tournament due to a stress fracture.
The big question now is who can support the aforementioned stars in the side because it’s the domestic players, seven of them in the XI who dictate how the season goes for the team. Riyan Parag had shown a few signs for the future, K Gowtham and Shreyas Gopal had bowled reasonably well in tandem and Jaydev Unadkat and Dhawan Kulkarni might need some pace bowling support from other Indian bowlers at the auction. Rajasthan Royals players list 2021 will be placed below.
