Rajasthan Royals were the champions in the inaugural IPL season in 2008, but things haven’t quite gone according to plans for them since then. They did make it to the playoffs in the 2018 IPL season but have finished seventh and eighth since then. However, they looked in decent form in the first half of IPL 2021 during which they won three out of their seven matches. That saw them placed at the fifth spot in the table and they will resume the second half from that position as well.
However, the squad for the second half has undergone a drastic change with players pulling out due to personal reasons. Rajasthan Royals will be without the likes of Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Andrew Tye and Jofra Archer this time but they have replaced them with pretty good players in Glenn Phillips, Evin Lewis, Oshane Thomas and Tabraiz Shamsi. All of these players are equally capable and it will be interesting to see how they fare in the season.
