Rajasthan Royals has always produced star cricketers from scratch. From Yusuf Pathan to Steve Smith to Ravindra Jadeja, we have seen all these players excel at Rajasthan Royals at some point in time. But despite having all the armoury in their side, they still haven’t lived up to the expectations of the fans. Let us take a look at the predicted playing XI Rajasthan Royals can field this season.
Royals have never been able to live up to the reputation they carried with themselves in 2008. The constant change in team management and betting scandal restricted their chance of qualification on most occasions.
With Steve Smith back as captain for this Rajasthan will hope to finish in the top four this time. They had already got the firepower in the form of Ben Stokes, Smith and Jofra Archer. So in the IPL 2020, they built their team around the core.
The team owner Manoj Badale made some interesting picks, hoping to put up a good show this year. So let’s take a look at their probable playing XI.
Let’s have a look at the predicted playing XI of Rajasthan Royals for IPL 2020:
Without no doubt, the lineup has to start with the fiery batsmen from England Jos Buttler. Last year, Buttler gave Rajasthan some quick starts opening the batting along with Manan Vohra and Ajinkya Rahane.
The batting position of Buttler is a hot topic as the batsman is termed as a finisher in the making. But very recently, he has been opening for every team he has been playing from the Big Bash League to Indian Premier League.
So we expect him to open the innings this year in the UAE and help Rajasthan Royals take off to good starts in the powerplay.
