Team Analysis

Rajasthan Royals

In the leadership of Sanju Samson, Rajasthan Royals have a great blend of youth and experience in their batting and bowling lineups. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Yuzvendra Chahal, who were two of the top performers for RR in the IPL 2023, will be the key players for the franchise in their quest to make the top four in the upcoming season. The new signings, including the likes of Rovman Powell, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Avesh Khan, and Nandre Burger, could also have a big say in the IPL 2024 as far as the Royals are concerned.
