Their marquee player for the last season, Steve Smith, will be playing for the RR team 2019, but not for the complete tournament. England and Australia’s cricket boards have instructed that their marquee players will not be taking part in the complete Indian Premier League 2019 timeline, given that the ICC 2019 Cricket World Cup is only a few months away from IPL. However, Ajinkya Rahane, who was the captain of the squad last season, has been named the RR captain 2019 for the Rajasthan Royals team 2019 players list (RR team 2019) this season as well.
Shane Warne was the coach of the RR team last year and will be again mentoring the RR players 2019 in the 12th season of the tournament.

However, we will look at the Rajasthan Royals team 2019 players list (RR team 2019) in this article, which has been revealed after the conclusion of the IPL 2019 auction, which took place on December 18, 2018.

IPL 2019, Rajasthan Royals Team 2019 Players List: RR Coach 2019
Australia’s legendary cricketer and a one-of-a-kind spin bowler Shane Warne will be the RR coach 2019. It has also been reported that Paddy Upton will be the RR coach 2019, but we’d suggest you to stay tuned for the confirmation of this report.
Warne has contributed a great deal to the Rajasthan Royals team 2019 (RR squad 2019) since the inception of the Indian Premier League.
Warne was the captain of the Rajasthan Royals in the inaugural edition of IPL, i.e. IPL 2008, when the team had clinched the championship title, surprising all of the opponent teams and audiences. The 49 year old will again be taking up the role of the RR coach 2019 in the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League for the RR squad 2019.
The Rajasthan Royals team 2019 players list will also have assistant coaches, obviously. The RR coach 2019 – Shane Warne – will likely be assisted by Indian domestic batting maestro Amol Muzumdar and the spin-bowling consultant for IPL 2019 Sairaj Bahutule.
IPL 2019, Rajasthan Royals Team 2019 Players List: RR Captain 2019
The RR captain 2019 will be Steve Smith, who has been out of international action for almost an year now. Smith was banned along with the Australian vice-captain David Warner for the sandpaper controversy, and couldn’t play the last season of the Indian Premier League due to his ban-term.
However, as Australian cricket board has allowed it’s cricketers to play for a limited period of time in the Indian Premier League 2019, Steve Smith will take up the role of the RR captain 2019. In his absence, Ajinkya Rahane will be the care-taker RR captain 2019 for the remaining part of the tournament.
RR Team 2019: Rajasthan Royals Squad Analysis
Rajasthan Royals team 2019 players list has the majority of their match-winners from the last season, such as Ajinkya Rahane, Ben Stokes, Rahul Tripathi and Sanju Samson.
The RR team 2019 will have great prospects in the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League as long as the RR squad 2019’s top players are in good form, such as Steve Smith, Ben Stokes and Ajinkya Rahane.
Rahane is the leading run-scorer for the RR squad 2019, as he has the most runs amongst all the players of the Rajasthan Royals team 2019 players list, i.e. 2,705 runs. Ben Stokes had not been able to impress the audiences and his auctioneers in the last season, and hence, has a lot of hopes stored in him for the IPL 2019 tournament.
The icing on the cake for the Rajasthan Royals team 2019 players list (RR squad 2019) will be the presence of Steve Smith. Until last year, when the former Australian captain had not faced the ban-term, Smith was in top form across all formats of the game, and his return to IPL, especially the RR team 2019 will be a celebrated one for sure.
The Rajasthan Royals team 2019 players list (RR 2019 players list) had made it to the playoffs of the last season despite of getting written off as the title contenders, and we are hoping some toe-curling, nail-biting cricket action from the squad in the Indian Premier League 2019.
