IPL 2023: 4 Players Rajasthan Royals (RR) Will Surely Retain Ahead Of Auction. The IPL feast continues as we move towards the 16th edition, to take place in early 2023. The thrill we saw in the IPL 2022 is expected to increase further as all the teams gear up for another season. Rajasthan Royals (RR) had their best performance so far since their maiden IPL victory in the inaugural edition in 2008. They were the runner-ups in the 15th edition and among the most consistent teams of the season.
After the IPL 2022 mega auction, the Rajasthan Royals team was assumed to be among the top contenders to lift the trophy. They had one of the most balanced teams. The batsman, as well as the bowlers, delivered together for them, giving the fans a visual delight. Let’s take a look at 4 players Rajasthan Royals could retain ahead of the IPL 2023 auction:
Scoring 863 runs in 17 innings, including 4 centuries, Jos Buttler was phenomenal with the bat for RR. Batting at the top of the order, Buttler provided the best possible start for the team. He was calm at the starting, but as he settled and got used to the pace and bounce of the wicket, Buttler was unstoppable. He was very lethal against the spinners. Jos Buttler won 8 individual awards, including the orange cap. Rajasthan Royals will surely retain him ahead of the IPL 2023 auction.
It seems the persistent trust in Sanju Samson by the Rajasthan Royals has finally paid off. The captain of the franchise led the team in a better way as compared to the last few years. He was also good with the bat, making valuable contributions in the middle order. Sanju Samson was the second most successful batsman for the franchise in IPL 2022, scoring 458 runs in 17 innings.
He was also very vocal in the field, making the right decisions. Rajasthan Royals did not win the trophy, but they have won a lot of heart, and a lot of credit goes to Sanju Samson. He will surely be retained ahead of the IPL 2023 auction.
Yuzvendra Chahal has silenced his critics with his career-best performance in the IPL 2022. Chahal was the purple cap holder, picking 27 wickets in 17 innings, including a hat-trick. The best thing about their bowling of Chahal this season was that he was giving the ball more flight and enticing the batters to hit him over the park. But, he was clever and deceived many batsmen with his flight and turn. The impressive bowling performance of Yuzvendra Chahal will be enough for the team management to retain him ahead of the IPL 2023 auction.
PRASIDH KRISHNA/ RAVICHANDRAN ASHWIN
Both Prasidh Krishna and Ravichandran Ashwin had a good IPL 2022. While the former picked 19 wickets in 17 innings, the latter scalped 12 wickets in 17 innings. Prasidh Krishna was accurate with his line length throughout the season, hitting the deck hard and picking wickets at the right interval.
Ashwin, on the other hand, had a good IPL both with the bat and ball. He has promoted up the order in a few innings and played handy knocks. With the ball, Ashwin produced some magical deliveries, including his carrom ball. Ashwin and Prashidh Krishna will surely be among the players Rajasthan Royals can retain ahead of the IPL 2023 auction.
