Rajasthan Royals haven’t really kick-started their IPL campaign with a positive note. Although they gave their best in the game against Punjab Kings, they fell short of 4 runs despite Sanju Samson’s century.
However, they stunned IPL 2020 runners-up Delhi Capitals by defeating them with ease. The likes of David Miller and Chris Morris batted superbly the Royals as they secured their first win of this season.
After that, they locked horns with Chennai Super Kings in their third game. But they lost to CSK by 45 runs. Having played 3 games so far this season, RR managed to win just 1 and lost two games.
As a result, they are 7th in the IPL 2021 points table with a Net Run Rate of -0.719. The Royals would have to act on it before it’s too late else they might end up at the bottom of the points table.
