Rajasthan Royals are the winners of the very first edition of the Indian Premier League in 2008 but after that they failed to name any title to their name but has always dawned the field with a relatively young side and has always impressed with such sides only. Last year as well, they didn’t have their regular captain Steven Smith in the side but then also they managed to reach the the playoffs under the captaincy of Ajinkya Rahane.
This year Smith is back in their side and some of the best international played in the world at the moment are In their side which include Ben Stokes, Jos Butler and Jofra Archer which makes their side rock solid. The only concern is their spin bowling as they don’t have much experience there and in a tournament like IPL, It’s important to get good slow bowlers.
