IPL Rajasthan Royals 2021 Team Players List
RR 2021 Team
Rajasthan Royals team for IPL 2021 is placed here. The Rajasthan Royals won the inaugural edition of the IPL under the guidance of legendary spinner Shane Warne. It was a Cinderella story. Apart from Warne, they had minimal experience in their team and were written off by many fans and the media. However, it has been downhill since then, as they have failed to win the tournament. They are captained by Sanju Samson and coached by Andrew McDonald. IPL RR team 2021 players list is placed below.
Traditionally the Royals have usually purchased unknown or uncapped players for small fees, and they are reluctant to spend big. But this year, they ripped up that rulebook and broke the bank along with the IPL spending record as they signed Chris Morris for Rs. 16.25 Crore. This breaks the record previously set for Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh. They had earlier hit the headlines when they made the massive decision not to retain captain Steve Smith for this upcoming season. They had a plan in mind, and this appears to have been executed. However, they haven’t strayed too far away from their routes, as after signing Morris and Shivam Dube, they were left with a small budget to fill the rest of their squad. They signed another additional six players for less than a combined total of Rs. 3.5 Crore.
The Royals had a clear plan heading into the auction this season, and they appear to have achieved what they set out to. However, in reality, all they have done is swap Steve Smith for Chris Morris. They have some fantastic all-rounders and arguably have the best middle-order lineup in the league. However, they lack depth at the top, and their bowling attack will again rely on one man, Jofra Archer. Archer was probably the best bowler in the IPL last season, in my opinion, but he couldn’t do it all on his own. Even with him performing as well as he did, they still finished bottom of the table. Unfortunately, I can’t see them improving that much this season, and they will undoubtedly struggle to make the playoffs. The one positive they have is that with England touring Indian right before the start of the IPL season, their English trio should be well acclimatised to the weather and pitches in particular.
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. 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.
