Team PreviewRajasthan Royals

After a miserable run (last position) during the previous IPL season, Rajasthan Royals will look to start fresh in 2021. RR will take the field with a new skipper as Sanju Samson is set to lead the side after the departure of Steve Smith. They have also added some decent players like Chris Morris, Shivam Dube, Liam Livingstone and Mustafizur Rahman to their squad during the auctions. However, the Rajasthan-based franchise suffered a massive setback after Jofra Archer got ruled out owing to an injury.

Team PreviewPunjab Kings

Punjab Kings (earlier Kings XI Punjab) too failed to qualify for the playoffs in IPL 2020. However, they won some exciting matches but couldn’t edge past the bottom four line. PBKS was one of the most aggressive teams during this year’s auctions as they roped in some expensive buys to their squad. Their top picks include Jhye Richardson (INR 14 cr), Riley Meredith (INR 8 cr), Shahrukh Khan (INR 5.25 cr), Moises Henriques (INR 4.2 cr) and Dawid Malan (INR 1.5 cr).
