Disappointing Season – Inconsistent and Lack of Clarity
Rajasthan Royals had a strong team but could not make it to the playoffs. They had power-packed foreign players such as Smith, Buttler, Stokes, and Archer in the playing 11. Somehow, Rajasthan could not decide on their batting order and kept shuffling it a lot. This shuffling and undefined role proved to be fatal.
Rajasthan started their IPL 2020 campaign on a high by winning the first two games. After that, everything seemed to go downhill for them. The inclusion of English all-rounder Ben Stokes infused much-needed energy in the team, and they started playing well again.
The top-order fired in most games but was not consistent enough. All-rounder Rahul Tewatia was impressive and did well with bat and ball. Jofra was at his express best and rattled the opposition batsmen with his raw pace. Kartik Tyagi, the young Indian pacer, was a real find for the Rajasthan Royals. He bowled really well in the powerplay and during the death overs.
Steve Smith and his boys will know that this was not the kind of season they were looking for. If Rajasthan Royals can strike a perfect balance in their playing 11, they will be pretty hard to beat. All the Rajasthan Royals fans will hope for a much-improved performance from their team in the Indian Premier League’s upcoming season.
