Last year, Rajasthan Royals surprised many cricket pundits by picking Joe Root who could play an anchor role but this year Root has decided to opt out from IPL which gave them no choice but to release him. Royals have great power players like Shimron Hetmyer, Sanju Samson & Jos Buttler so they most likely go with a player similar to Joe Root in the upcoming auction to provide stability incase they lose early quick wickets. 

Spin resources in the Rajasthan Royals team squad 2024 are comprised of match winners like Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravichandran Ashwin & Adam Zampa while they also have some quality pacers available like Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna & Navdeep Saini. All in all the team is very well balanced and it is now up to the Rajasthan Royals captain 2024, Sanju Samson to lead his troops effectively and become the Champions of IPL for the second time.
