The Rajasthan Royals were truly one of the best sides in the IPL 2022, having displayed tremendous amount of improvement in comparison to their previous few seasons. The team though lost to Gujarat Titans in the final and couldn’t lift the trophy, it’s no doubt that they were no less than any other side this season.
The team displayed quality performances in all the departments as almost each and every key player in the squad performed miraculously well and catapulted the team’s fortune to the highest level. The team management at first did an excellent job during the mega auctions ahead of the start of the season as the drafted in several quality players to strengthen their squad.
The inclusion of players like Trent Boult, Yuzwendra Chahal and others proved to be superbly advantageous for the side. Both the orange and the purple cap were taken away by the players from this team as Jos Buttler amassed runs for fun while Yuzwendra chahal was the leading wicket taker this season.
Admit a little bit of disappointment of not being able to win the IPL this season, the team will surely be looking to make the impossible happen next year with a greater amount of determination.
Rajasthan Royals: Prediction for IPL 2023
Rajasthan Royals no doubt have made a mark in the recent season after finishing 2nd in the points table during the group stages and narrowly missing out on the trophy. The team will still be able to bank on a dozen positives which they have achieved this season through the wonderful performances of all their players.
Rajasthan Royals seemed complete in all departments as the betters seemed to be in great touch and the bowlers also did an extremely good job in most of the matches. The only thing which the management will be looking for is a quality finisher with the bat lower down the order, in the mini auction ahead of IPL 2023. With all plans going accordingly the team will be one of the favourites to lift the trophy next year for sure.
