An Analysis- Team Rajasthan Royals for Vivo IPL 2019

Openers-

Key Openers:  Ajinkya Rahane and Jos Butler

Backups: Manan Vohra, Aryaman Birla, Rahul Tripathi and Prashant Chopra

Rajasthan Royals have a great duet of openers in the form of Ajinkya Rahane and Joss Butler. While Joss is more aggressive on field and it would be amazing to see the two together.

To keep everything in control, they have two good backups- Manan Vohra & Rahul Tripathi and other two upright backups- Prashant Chopra and Aryaman Birla.

There are enough good options for RR to choose from in the opening department.

Rahul Tripathi, who shall be replacing Jos Butler after he flies back to England, would be a better opener as compared to a middle-order batsman. RR has a decent line of openers; the way the players are used shall decide the fate of the game.

Middle- Openers

Key Middle-Order Players:  Sanju Samson, Steve Smith and Ben Stokes

Backups:  Liam Livingstone, Ashton Turner, Shashank Singh and Rahul Tripathi

Steve Smith could not perform lately due to the ban. But with his ban being ended before IPL 2019, his strengthen their middle-order would be very useful for the team.

Ben Stokes and Sanju Samson are supposed to fill up the remaining two spots in the middle-order. RR also has two specialist backups in the form of Ashton Turner and Liam Livingstone. Their role will be important once Ben Stokes and Joss Butler fly back to England owing to World Cup preparations.

Shashank Singh, on the other hand, is unlikely to get a game, except for if there is a major necessity.

All- Rounders

Key Batting All-rounder: Ben Stokes

Key Bowling All-rounder: Krishnappa Gowtham

Backups: Mahipal Lomror, Stuart Binny, Shubham Ranjane, Shashank Singh, Liam Livingstone and Ashton Turner.

Rajasthan Royals has high hopes from their key all-rounder and popular player Ben Stokes. He along with Krishnappa Gowtham will make up for the all-round department.

Backups for the All- Rounders - Mahipal Lomror, Stuart Binny, Shubham Ranjane and Shashank Singh.

Spinners

Key Spinners: Shreyas Gopal , Ish Sodhi and Krishnappa Gowtham

Backups: Mahipal Lomror, Sudheshan Mitdun and Liam Livingstone 

Rajasthan Royals have an impactful duet of spinners in the form of Shreyas Gopal and Ish Sodhi. They have performed well in past and the same is expected of them this season. However, Ish Sodhi shall not get a game because of the overseas players restrictions, which implies that, Krishnappa Gowtham will have add on as a second spinner.

Mahipal Lomror , Sudheshan Mitdun and Liam Livingstone are also good backup options.


Pacers

Key Pacers:  Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat, Oshane Thomas and Jofra Archer

Backups: Varun Aaron

Rajasthan Royals  Jaydev Unadkat along with Jofra Archer and Dhawal Kulkarni shall be expected to lead the pace bowling attack.

However, the franchise would expect for a much better performance from Jaydev Unadkat this time. The team has all his fronts secure and with Oshane Thomas and Varun Aaron present as backups, RR shall have a good place bowling squad.

The Rajasthan Royals have an almost perfect team and we hope they give a tough fight to its competitors on the round in IPL 2019.
