IPL 2022 Auctions: 3 Probable IPL Teams that need a complete revamp in IPL 2022 Auction:
3. Rajasthan Royals (RR):
The former champions Rajasthan Royals (RR) definitely need a new makeover to start afresh in season fifteen of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Under the captaincy of Shane Warne, Rajasthan Royals (RR) won the title in 2008 and since then there has been a complete drought in their cabinet.
Ahead of the IPL 2021, RR played a major card to hand over the captaincy to Sanju Samson and leave behind the likes of Steve Smith. Samson has done quite well in his debut season as a skipper, but he too needs immense improvement to compete against Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni, Kane Williamson and Virat Kohli.
RR has heavily relied upon their overseas players and it would be fair to say that the core of the franchise is formed by its foreign players. Currently, Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and Jos Buttler along with Sanju Samson forms the core which is a slight disadvantage.
The franchise will look to free up the overseas slots by acquiring a couple of experienced Indian cricketers. This will also give them space to experiment on their overseas slots and could possibly lead to a better team combination.
