The Rajasthan Royals, at the start of IPL 2023, boasts of one of the most complete sides in the tournament. After a dream run in 2022, Jos Buttler and Co. will hope to continue this form. The Royals haven’t made major changes to their side and will once again pin their hopes on Buttler, Sanju Samson, Trent Boult and Yuzvendra Chahal to carry the team. 

Whereas the Sunrisers Hyderabad have made some big changes to their side and had an incredible auction. The 2016 champions have built an exciting squad with promising youngsters, who can take every team by storm. Sunrisers still have their veteran stars like Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, who will stabilise the team allowing someone like Harry Brooks to play flamboyant cricket.
