RR Squad IPL 2023: The inaugural champions of the Indian Premier League (IPL) entered the IPL 2023 Auction on 23rd December with a little purse after retaining most of their key players ahead of the auction. RR had INR 13.25 Crores in their funds remaining to make purchases of the players, which was the third lowest in the recent auctions. Despite money being a major constraint, RR managed to pick up good players during the auction and covered their bases completely. Down below is the complete list of player bought by Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2023 Auction.
Although Rajasthan placed their bids for a number of high-profile players, their low purse value kept them a step behind the competitors. They opened bids for Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Nicholas Pooran, Ben Stokes and Shivam Mavi, but all went in vain.
However, RR successfully managed to get hold of veteran all-rounder Jason Holder at a price of INR 5.75 Crores. They also bagged South African glovesman, Donovan Ferreira, for INR 50 Lakhs.
During the accelerated round, RR added a few more overseas players to pluck all the gaps in their squad. They bought Adam Zampa (INR 1.5 Crores) and Joe Root for a base price of INR 1 Crore.
Coming to their domestic purchases, RR picked up the services of Kunal Rathore (INR 20 lakh), KM Asif (INR 30 lakh), Murugan Ashwin (INR 20 lakh), Akash Vashisht (INR 20 lakh) and Abdul P A (INR 20 lakh).
