Opening Batsmen:

The team from Rajasthan did very well in securing the services of their long-time servants Rahane and Samson which did cost them big bucks but having potent IPL experience will be vital for their chances in this year’s competition. Samson can also keep wickets which allows Rajasthan to bat even deep. These two will surely be creating some scintillating performances which would make for exciting RR news 2018.

Middle Order:

Perhaps the most fearful number 3, 4, and 5 in this year’s IPL will see Smith, Stokes, and Buttler follow the innings from Rahane and Samson. Steve Smith and Ben Stokes had a very successful IPL 2017 and they would hope to continue the momentum this year as well. In Buttler, Rajasthan Royals have one of the best finishers in the IPL which can help the team finish with a flourish. Stokes and Binny can also contribute with the ball which makes them valuable assets, and Buttler will be keeping wicket for them.

Bowling Lineup:

Rajasthan Royals team 2018 management did well to recruit two Indian pace bowlers in the form of Jaydev Unadkat and Dhawal Kulkarni at the mega-auction in Bangalore.
