IPL 2018: RR Captain 2018
The Rajasthan Royals had decided to retain only one player ahead of the mega IPL auction – Australia’s Steve Smith. It was Rajasthan’s plans to make Steve Smith as the RR Captain 2018, however, that decision has been taken out of their hands after Steve Smith was suspended from cricket for 12 months by Cricket Australia. Following Steve Smith’s suspension, Ajinkya Rahane has been named as the new RR Captain for the 2018 edition of IPL.
IPL 2018: RR Coach 2018
Legendary Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne will be the RR Coach 2018. Warne was the captain when the Royals won the IPL title a decade ago in 2008 and after a hiatus of seven years, he will be back as a mentor in the Rajasthan Royals dugout this year. Warne will be assisted by Indian domestic stalwart Amol Muzumdar, who will be the batting coach and Sairaj Bahutule, the franchise’s spin bowling consultant for IPL 2018.
RR Team 2018: Rajasthan Royals Squad Analysis
Considering the level of competitiveness in the IPL, making a return after a gap of two years is never easy. As such, the Rajasthan Royals went into the mega-auction needing a lot of new players in order to assemble a formidable RR squad ahead of IPL 2018. As expected, they were quite active in the auction and also made the two most expensive signings at the auction in January.
Rajasthan Royals squad 2018 has plenty of batting firepower in the form of captain Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul Tripathi, Sanju Samson and D’Arcy Short. Jatin Saxena and Prashant Chopra can also be reliable middle-overs options for the RR thinktank.
English wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler will also add explosiveness to the Rajasthan Royals squad 2018 and is likely to be a key player for the franchise in IPL 2018.
Coming to the all-rounders in Rajasthan Royals squad for IPL 2018, maverick Englishman Ben Stokes will be the man to watch out for as he emerged as the most expensive player in IPL auction for the second year running. The franchise also did well to bring in the services of Jofra Archer, who is a death overs specialist and can also contribute some handy runs towards the end of an innings. Rajasthan’s very own Mahipal Lomror and veteran Stuart Binny will also provide handy all-round options to captain Smith.
Jaydev Unadkat, the most expensive Indian player at the auction, will lead the Royals’ bowling attack. The franchise used one of their RTM cards to have Dhawal Kulkarni as a part of RR squad and also signed up Australian T20 specialist Ben Laughlin. Karnataka’s spin twins Shreyas Gopal and Krishnappa Gowtham will handle the spin department for Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2018.
The Rajasthan Royals squad looks like a well-rounded unit and under the inspired leadership of captain Steve Smith and coach Shane Warne, RR can certainly mount a title challenge in IPL 2018.
