Rajasthan Royals Squad IPL 2021

2008 season winners never able repeat the success again over the years in the Indian premier league history. In the last year season, they ended up at the bottom of the table for the first time ever in tournament history despite having quality players. The factor like communication was clearly missing out in the last season among players and selectors which was witnessed in their choices too.


In this year's auction Rajasthan Royals have released Steve Smith and picked up players like Chris Morris and Mustafizur Rahman to strengthen their bowling attack with Jofra Archer, Andrew Tye and Jaydev Unadkat. Undoubtedly they will enter the season as the favourites with the most complete side ever in their history. Having said, let's take a look at Rajasthan Royals Squad, Strengths and Weaknesses ahead of IPL 2021.


Rajasthan Royals Team Squad 2021 –


Sanju Samson (c & wk), Jos Buttler (wk), Ben Stokes, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Manan Vohra, Anuj Rawat, Riyan Parag, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Mahipal Lomror, Shreyas Gopal, Mayank Markande, Jofra Archer, Andrew Tye, Jaydev Unadkat, Kartik Tyagi, Shivam Dube, Chris Morris, Mustafizur Rahman, Chetan Sakariya, KC Cariappa, Liam Livingstone, Kuldip Yadav, Akash Singh


Strength – Rajasthan Royals Quality batting


Looking at the Rajasthan Royals line-up which will enter the 14th edition of IPL, it's hard to find any issues in the batting order. The captain himself Sanju Samson will get the support of players like Jos Butler, Ben Stokes, David Miller, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Manan Vohra to provide enough depth in the line-up.


Recently Ben Stokes was involved in the 300 plus chase against India and he will definitely look to continue that momentum alongside Jos Butler who can both open the innings also for Royals, in case Yashasvi Jaiswal under performed in matches.


Even they have enough young Indian players, whose performance can matters for Rajasthan Royals success in the season. Anuj Rawat, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, and Mahipal Lomror. Interesting to watch out whose young bloke rose up up to occasion ahead of IPL 2021.


Weakness – Limited Indian Pace bowlers


Considering the last year performance of Rajasthan Royals, if they have finished at the bottom of the table after having the player like Jofra Archer it was definitely the reason of another Indian fast bowler who could support him. With this year, no doubt Rajasthan Royals have picked up players like Chris Morris and Mustafizur Rahman to strong their line-up. But it depends how will they perform in the season as the current form of these players are not that good.


Even in the spin department they don't have experience spinners like other teams who can lead the spin attack. In the current line-up Rajasthan Royals have in experience spin bowling attack which might be crucial factor if part timers failed to perform. With in experience spin attack its great opportunity for young Indian players to prove themselves for coming big tournaments and series after the IPL 2021.
