Rajasthan Royals will enter the IPL auction 2023 with the lowest amount. They have only 14.5 crore rupees in their purse.

Rajasthan Royals, which failed to qualify for the playoffs in the IPL last year, is trying to correct all its shortcomings this year. This shortcoming will be removed in the IPL auction 2023 which is going to be held on 19th December. In this auction, Rajasthan will mainly focus on middle-order batsmen, all-rounders, and fast bowlers. Before the auction, all the teams released the list of their released and retained players. Rajasthan released nine of its players and traded Devdutt Padikkal for Lucknow Super Giants’ Avesh Khan. Along with this, he decided to retain 16 players.

Rajasthan Royals have the least money in their purse before going to the auction. This team will be able to fulfill the needs of its team with just Rs 14 crore 50 lakh. Rajasthan Royals have space for 8 players.
Of these, three are for foreign players.

What are the requirements of Rajasthan Royals?

Middle-order batsman – The team was missing a hitter in the middle order last year.

This year he can bet on England’s Harry Brook and West Indies’ Rovman Powell for this place. Manish Pandey is also a good candidate for this place and has a lot of experience.

Fast Bowler – Rajasthan Royals have an excellent bowler in the form of Trent Boult but there is no one to support Boult. For this reason, RR will keep an eye on fast bowlers in the auction. For this place, the team will have an option in the foreign names of Chris Woakes of England. Woakes can also bat well in the lower order.

Apart from this, the team can also bet on Tim Southee who is also Bolt’s partner in the New Zealand team. Australia’s Pat Cummins will also be in focus, who has shown explosive batting in the IPL.

All-rounder – Rajasthan Royals will also need an all-rounder this year who can work for them with both bat and ball.

Daryl Mitchell would be a good option for the team for the place of all-rounder. He was unsold last season but looked in good form in this year’s World Cup. New Zealand’s Jimmy Neesham is also a good option for this place, who has been a part of RR. If the team selects an Indian for this place then it can bet on Shardul Thakur.
