Winners of the inaugural season IPL 2008, Rajasthan Royals are famously admired with their tagline “Halla Bol.” 

The team is well-known for picking unknown local talent and uncapped players, introducing them to a world of fame with the hope to add their names to IPL total winners list.

After their massive start, the Royals lost their spark and then never made it to the semifinals.

This year too, the team is standing 7th in the table with 8 points, the next year will be much better because of the strengthening of the squad and it will be a nice possibility to follow for IPL match odds live and earn some money.

Rajasthan Royals Best Players

1. Sanju Samson

The best wicketkeeper of India and skipper of the RR squad, Sanju Samson, made his first debut at the age of 17, and there was no looking back after that. The team captain has many skills up his sleeves, either with the bat or behind the wickets. He scored 375 runs in the IPL 2020. While this season, Sanju has 452 runs under his name after 11 matches.

2. Chris Morris

Morris is one of those All-Rounders who can swing the ball even in the death overs. He’s a big hitter and can knock off the opponents with his bowling. Rajasthan Royals bought this South African Player for a significant amount in the auction of IPL 2021. RR always finds how to make one of the strongest Indian Premier League Squads, that’s why they always buy players and find young talents.

3. David Miller

David is a middle-order left-handed batsman, and without a doubt, he’s a one-man army. Fans haven’t yet forgotten his century over 38 balls in the IPL 2013. And even though Miller played only one match in 2020 IPL, the team and the fans have high hopes for him this season.

4. Jos Butler

This opening batsman joined Rajasthan Royals in 2018. He’s an excellent wicketkeeper and a batsman who made the strong squad and create the trust for bettors to bet and follow for live cricket betting rates in India. Fans do call him a destructive player. But unfortunately, Butler will be no more part of the team for the second phase of IPL.
