RR was the champions of Indian Premier League 2008. But they failed to make the playoffs and finished fifth in last season. The RR is now under the guidance of coach Paddy Upton. They will be looking to improve their performance in this edition of the IPL.

During this IPL Auction, Rajasthan Royals spent Rs.1.40 crore on South African Christopher Morris. The team also bought South African pacer Juan Theron. They also included Pradeep Sahu and Sagar Trivedi to their squad.

Australian explosive allrounder Shane Watson is leading the team. Watson is supported by reliable Ajinkya Rahane and Sanju Samson at the top-order. They are followed Mr. Consistence Steven Smith and Karun Nair. They can absorb pressure and accelerate the innings. They followed by explosive batters like Stuart Binny, Deepak Hooda and James Faulkner. They are capable to destroy any bowling lineup.

Their bowling department contains quality pacers like Tim Southee, Kane Richardson, Chris Morris and Dhawal Kulkarni. The presence of Shane Watson, James Faulkner and Stuart Binny gives them an extra edge. Praveen Tambe is an exceptional leg spinner. Steven Smith and Deepak Hooda come in handy as part timers.

Most of the teams in the IPL tend to buy famous players. The RR has a tradition of unearthing the promising talent. Royals have a history of picking good, uncapped players. They have always focused on buying players at cut-throat prices. They also picked unknown talent of all ages and backed them.
