Rajasthan Royals possess a star-studded batting order with the likes of Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Shimron Hetmyer and Riyan Parag. They have a fantastic top four which is mix of young potential and experience. Buttler and Samson are among the finest white-ball cricketers going around at this time. Shimron Hetmyer and Riyan Parag will form the core of the Royals middle-order batting.

Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson are the two options for this spot. Both are good at keeping the gloves for team. Samson has been donning the gloves for Rajasthan Royals for a long time. Therefore, we will witness Samson again behind the wickets for RR in IPL 2022.

Apart from Neesham, RR do not have many options in this department. Royals might be looking at Riyan Parag and Ravi Ashwin as other all-around options, but it is hard to expect explosive batting from them. The lack of options in all-rounders department could be a huge blow for Rajasthan Royals. Even Jimmy Neesham has failed to live up to the expectations in previous seasons of IPL. He definitely has the ability to hit a few big sixes but he has never been consistent in his performances.

RR have done quite good in bowling department. Rajasthan Royals have spend a big amount on Prasidh Krishna, which makes him an invaluable asset for his team. Trent Boult will lead the pace attack of RR along with Prasidh Krishna.

Ashwin and Chahal are the two best players in their respective roles. The both will bring the much-desired experience in the spin bowling department for the Royals. They are veterans of IPL and could form a potent spin duo for RR in IPL 2022.

RR IPL 2022 Team Review

RR decided to retain Sanju Samson, Yashavi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler ahead of IPL 2022 Mega Auction. All three are openers. What was quite shocking is that, they spend a whooping amount of Rs. 7.75 cr. to bring in another opener, Devdutt Padikall. It will be hard for the team management to manage the top four. They are strength as well as weakness of RR. Rajasthan’s overall IPL 2022 squad looks promising but they do not have many options on their bench.
