1. Strength of Rajasthan Royals

⏩ Opening Batsmen:

Rajasthan Royals opening batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler are the biggest assets for the team. However, opening batsman, Yashasvi Jaiswal did not perform as expected in the 1st four matches of Rajasthan (RR). Still, he is a class player and will perform any time the team needs him the most.

Jos Buttler was also not doing well in the 1st 3 matches of the IPL 2024. But he was on fire against Royal Challengers Bangalore, he hit a century against RCB in the 4th match, Jos Buttler completed his 100 in just 58 balls with a strike rate of 172.41.

However, in this IPL Auction 2024, Rajasthan bought Rovman Powell as a backup for Hetmyer and has Dhruv Jurel in the middle order to make their squad more solid.

Even though Rovman Powell was not in the starting lineup in the recent IPL 2024 match with the Royals, everybody knows his hitting abilities. So whenever he is in the squad, he will perform. Powell has built a reputation for himself and is often regarded as a handy finisher.

⏩ All Rounder

  • Rovman Powell
  • Ravichandran Ashwin
  • Keshav Maharaj
  • Abid Mushtaq

⏩ Bowling Unit

Rajasthan Royals heavily rely on middle-order batsmen in the 1st four matches of IPL 2024. Opening batsmen have not performed well in the recent matches. Jos Buttler’s inconsistency and Yashasvi Jaiswal’s poor form keep more pressure on middle-order batsmen.

RR lacks the all-rounders. Only 2 all-rounder – Rovman Powell [ backup for Shimron Hetmyer ] and Ravichandran Ashwin are in the squad. Ravichandran Ashwin is known for his spin bowling. However, he has now become a complete all-rounder. Even though Rajasthan Royals are performing well in the recent matches. The lack of all-rounders might hunt them in future matches.

This IPL 2024, is a big opportunity for Riyan Parag and Shubham Dubey to shine. Riyan Parag has 185 runs in 4 matches. And Shubham Dubey 8 runs so far in 2 IPL matches with RR.

IPL 2024 can be the biggest opportunity for these players to break into the T20 World Cup 2024 squad of team India. Also with the well-balanced squad, Rajasthan have the opportunity to win and add the 2nd IPL trophy to their trophy cabinet.
