Rajasthan Royals had a forgettable season in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League. They finished at the bottom of the points table with 6 wins and 8 defeats.
RR decided to release Steve Smith from their machinery ahead of the mini IPL auction. Meanwhile, the team management appointed Sanju Samson as their captain.
The franchise hasn’t managed to live up to the reputation as they lost 4 games this season. The Royals managed to win only 2 games in the ongoing season of the IPL.
Moreover, they lost four key players from their squad. As many as three England players and one Australian player opted out of the competition for several reasons.
Ben Stokes (broken injury), Jofra Archer (hand injury), Liam Livingstone (bio-bubble fatigue), Andrew Tye (unknown reason). Their current Net Run Rate is -0.690.
Rajasthan Royals will lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad tomorrow at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi. Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals have recruited Proteas pacer as the replacement for Liam Livingstone.
RR sign Proteas pacer as a replacement for Liam Livingstone
Earlier, England international Liam Livingstone pulled out of the IPL citing bio-bubble fatigue. Now, the Royals recruited the services of Gerald Coetzee as a replacement for Livingstone.
The fast bowling sensation from South Africa is expected to ruffle the opposition batsmen feathers. The 20-year-old pacer already made a mark for himself by clocking in excess of 140 kph in the U-19 World Cup. The youngster will be looking forward to making his presence count in the ongoing season of the IPL.
