The Rajasthan Royals have been playing in the Indian Premier League since the opening season in 2008 but were banned for two years from 2017 to 2018. This team won the IPL T20 title for a time and it was in the first edition where they defeated Chennai Super Kings in the final. The Rajasthan Royals were the second worst performing team of the IPL last season. Like all other teams.
Rajasthan played a total of 14 matches in the league stage, with just five wins to his name. Rajasthan lost eight matches while one of their matches ended without any result. Rajasthan are ranked second from the bottom of the points table after the end of league stage matches. We saw last season that this team comes into this tournament with domestic talent but the team management of Rajasthan Royals made some important changes in their final squad for this team of Dream 11 IPL.
Steven Smith will lead the Rajasthan Royals during this edition of the Indian Premier League. The batting order of this team is at least strong on paper and in particular, their top order is solid. David Miller, Robin Uthappa, Jose Butler and Steve Smith will lead the top order of this team. Ben Stokes was also expected to be part of this team but it is not yet final. A bad thing for the Royals is that their key players will not be available for the first few matches.
Some domestic players who performed well in the recent tournament are also part of this team’s batting squad. Riyana Parag, Manan Vohra, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shashank Singh are the local batsmen in this side. Sanju Samson, Anuj Rawat and Robin Uthappa are the wicketkeeper batsmen. Mahipal Lomror, Shreyas Gopal, Anirudh Joshi and Tom Curren are the leading all-rounders. The bowling unit of this team is strong for this season. Tom Curren and Jofra Archer are the attacking bowlers.
Tom did well against Australia and is in good form. Joffra Archer also performed brilliantly in his recent series against Australia and is in excellent form. It is a good thing for the Royals that their leading bowlers are in good form. Varun Aaron, Oshen Thomas, Akash Singh and Andrew Tye are the leading bowlers for Rajasthan Royals along with Tom Curren and Jofra Archer.
Chennai Super Kings
The second best performing team of the Indian Premier League, Chennai Super Kings, had a good start in this season of Dream 11 IPL and won their opening match against Mumbai Indians. Chennai won the toss and decided to field first. His bowling unit performed well overall. He scored 162 runs in his 20-over innings. His attacking bowlers almost failed to give their best and failed to take quick wickets for the first wicket and scored 92 runs in the first half, but Ravindra Jadeja, Lungi Ngidi, Sam Curran and Piyush Chawla made a comeback after that and Mumbai.
Restricted the batting order of the Indians. By scoring runs. Lungi Nagidi was the highest wicket-taker for his side, taking three wickets for 38 runs in his four overs. Deepak Chahar took two wickets in his four overs, while he scored 32 runs. Ravindra Jadeja also took two wickets for 42 runs in his four overs, while Sam Curran and Piyush Chawla picked up one wicket each in their first match.
The Chennai Super Kings opener failed to give their team a good start in the last match. He lost both his openers to a total of only six runs, but a 115-run partnership between Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayudu brought his team closer to victory. Sam Curran’s 18 runs were a big part in Chennai Super Kings’ first win. He chased a target of 163 runs in 19.2 overs.
