Though 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 build their team around the core. The team owner Manoj Badale made some interesting picks, hoping to put up a good show this year.
Let’s take a look at the Top 3 new picks to watch out for in Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2020
Killer Miller in the IPL for his ability to score quick runs at a very healthy strike-rate. He was associated with the Kings XI Punjab franchise and was instrumental in finishing off multiple matches for the Punjab based franchise.
His most memorable innings came in 2013 season when he smashed 101* against RCB. Miller’s 8 year-long association with the franchise in 2019 as they decided not to retain him. His poor show in the 2019 season where he averaged just 26 led to his ouster from the Kings franchise.
In the 2020 IPL auction, he was picked by RR for $105,000. It is expected that he will bat at 4-5 depending on the situation. We might also see him playing the role of a finisher if needed as he possesses the intent to score quickly.
