HALLA BOL! The first IPL champions plan to make a sensational comeback in season 16. The Royals had a fantastic season when they made it to the IPL Finals, but unfortunately they lost to the Gujarat Titans. The Royals have reached the playoffs five times and have participated in two grand finals.
There will be no question if the squad makes the playoffs this year because they are looking excellent in every way.
Let us have a look at RR Squad 2023, Playing 11, Retained Players, and team strengths.

RR INJURED PLAYERS AND REPLACEMENT
Prasidh Krishna, the primary RR pacer, will not play in the IPL in 2023. He boosts the pace attack and offers solid swing options during the power play. The club will rely on Trent Boult, Obed, Asif, Kuldeep Sen, and others while still searching for Prasidh’s replacement.

RR TEAM STRENGTH
- Spin Attack
This year, Rajasthan has a strong spin attack because of the presence of Adam Zampa, Ravichandran Ashwin, Murugan Ashwin, and Indian Spin Wizard Yuzvendra Chahal. They are all renowned for having amazing spin bowling. These will be used wisely by Sanju Samson and benefit the team.
- Pace Attack
Rajasthan’s pace attack is still the best in this season despite Prasidh’s absence. Obed McCoy, Trent Boult, KM Ashif, Navdeep Saini, and Kuldeep Sen form a tough RR pace attack that can challenge any batting lineup in the Incredible Premier League.
RR TEAM WEAKNESS
- Batting All-rounder
The team lacks an excellent all-around batsman who can single-handedly change the momentum of a match. Any team must have a batting all-rounder since he can play at any batting position according to the situation. He can also effectively end an inning whether chasing or batting first. Jason Holder is the only capable all-around player on the team, so the team will totally rely on him.
