IPL 2024 Preview: The Revival Rajasthan Royals are Back and Will Win This Time

<p>Over the last three years, the Rajasthan Royals have definitely established themselves as a modern IPL powerhouse. However, the 2008 tournament’s original winners haven’t yet made it to the promised land since they’re still stuck in translation. Is it possible for the Royals to escape their current state of boredom and achieve success once more?</p>
<p><img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-524721″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/theindiaprint.com-ipl-2024-preview-the-revival-rajasthan-royals-are-back-and-will-win-this-time-raja.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com ipl 2024 preview the revival rajasthan royals are back and will win this time raja” width=”1032″ height=”775″ title=”IPL 2024 Preview: The Revival Rajasthan Royals are Back and Will Win This Time 6″></p>
<p>Even though they often start with a well-rounded squad full of enticing talent, they ultimately fall short of their projected potential. However, they will want to stake their claim and try to win the championship once again by keeping most of their starting lineup from the team that was loaded with experience and proven skill from the previous season and adding even more exciting players in their most recent auction.</p>
<p>The Royals engaged in a great deal of astute auctioneering. The Royals reinforced every element of their squad with their purchases in addition to holding onto key players like captain Sanju Samson, IPL’s all-time leading wicket-taker Yuzvendra Chahal, crafty veteran spinner R Ashwin, and the mysterious Yashasvi Jaiswal, among others.</p>
<p>Players to keep an eye on include Yashasvi Jaiswal. One might assume that Jaiswal, a young player, would carry his fair share of the load in the batting order given his meteoric climb to fame and his devastating form. However, Donovan Ferreira and Rovman Powell’s arrivals will also allow the squad to shift their focus away from the Indian hitter and provide the Royals with even more hitting strength.</p>
<p><strong>Rovman Powell:</strong> Not enough is said about RR’s largest rope-in of the season. With the bat and the ball, the daring West Indies all-rounder has the ability to literally win games for Rajasthan. He can be a deadly asset to the team.</p>
<p><strong>Nandre Burger:</strong> Nandre Burger might be the perfect way to wrap things up and give their side a little zip. Since making his debut in all forms a year ago, the South African pacer has been a surprise for his national team. Assembling him beside a seasoned veteran like Trent Boult would be an intriguing spectacle for onlookers, but maybe not for their opponents.</p>
<p><strong>Avesh Khan:</strong> A lot is also anticipated from the Royals’ newest trade asset, Avesh Khan, who was acquired by the Rajasthan Royals before the IPL 2024 auction via a trade swap with the Lucknow Super Giants in exchange for Devdutt Padikkal.</p>
<p>Avesh has had tremendous success in the IPL, particularly in his first season in 2021, when he took 24 wickets for the Delhi Capitals, forcing LSG to pay Rs 10 crore to sign him next year. However, with only 8 wickets in 9 games during the previous season at LSG, it seemed like he had a bit of a slump. Avesh may find that this fresh lease on life at RR provides him with the chance to regain his best form and help the club fill the vacuum left by the absence of Prasidh Krishna, RR’s strike bowler.</p>
<p><strong>OUR SEASON’S EXPERIENCE: </strong>The history of the Royals is an intriguing one. Given their potential, Rajasthan may be said to have had a disappointing season the previous year. The Men in Pink finished just outside of the playoff picture in 2022 after losing to Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans in the championship game. They broke even with seven wins and seven defeats.</p>
<p><strong>The strongest XI in RR:</strong></p>
<p>Rovman Powell, Shimron Hetmyer, Dhruv Jurel, Riyan Parag, R. Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult, Avesh Khan, Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c) (wk),</p>
<p><strong>Entire Squad:</strong></p>
<p>Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler*, Dhruv Jurel, Kunal Rathore, Donovan Ferreira*, Tom Kohler-Cadmore*, Shimron Hetmyer *, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Riyan Parag, Rovman Powell, *Shubham Dubey, Ravichandran Ashwin, Abid Mushtaq, Trent Boult*, Yuzvendra Chahal, Sandeep Sharma, Navdeep Saini, Kuldeep Sen, Adam Zampa*, Nandre Burger*, Avesh Khan.</p>
<p><strong>The fixes for the Rajasthan Royals:</strong><br />
This year’s season opener for the Royals will take place on Sunday, March 24, at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur, at home against KL Rahul’s Lucknow Super Giants (LSG).</p>
<p>Match 4: Lucknow Super Giants vs. Rajasthan Royals, Sunday, March 24, 3:30 p.m., Jaipur</p>
<p>Match 9: Delhi Capitals vs. Rajasthan Royals, Thursday, March 28, 7:30 p.m., Jaipur</p>
<p>Match 14: Monday, April 1, 7:30 p.m., Mumbai Indians vs. Rajasthan Royals</p>
