IPL 2020 Final List of Rajasthan Royals team list PL 2020 Final List of Rajasthan Royals team list after players auction: RR Team Squad IPL 2020
Rajasthan Royals have been the perennial underachievers of the IPL since they won that first title in 2008. Since then they have actually struggled to get going, having made the playoffs just three times and never entered the final. IPL RR team 2020 players list is placed below.
After an interesting trade window where Rajasthan Royals released Ajinkya Rahane, Dhawal Kulkarni, and K Gowtham, RR went into the IPL 2020 Auction with a hefty purse. They had quite a few gaps to address going into the auction, and they did a decent job overall.
RR acquired the services of Robin Uthappa and Jaydev Unadkat for INR 300L each, while the teenage prodigy, Yashasvi Jaiswal was procured for INR 240L. Arguably their best value for money purchase was that of Killer Miller, who was acquired for just INR 75L.
They also purchased three more overseas players in the form of Andrew Tye, Tom Curran, and Oshane Thomas. Add to this, they traded-in Mayank Markhande and Ankit Rajpoot to boost their bowling.
Analyzing the overall squad, RR seem to have managed a decent squad, but how does their playing 11 look like?
