Players buyed by RR

Now , here comes the main part, players buyed by the RR . This was the department on which RR focused the most. RR also stole the newspaper’s space as they bought south-african all rounder Chris Morris for 16.25 crores. RR also went behind Shivam dube and buyed him for 4.4 Crores.

Here is the complete list of players bought by Rajasthan royals –

  • Chris Morris (Rs 16.25 crore)
  • Shivam Dube (Rs 4.4 crore)
  • Mustafizur Rahman (Rs 1 crore)

  • Akash Singh (Rs 0.20 crore)

Reason behind the big buys

Till now we discussed about the players buyed by RR, so let’s discuss what could be the probable reasons behind buying of these players.

  1. Chris Morris

Chris was the biggest buy in the IPL history . He has been fantastic over the last few years. His all-round performance makes him much important for any team . RR spent a total of 16.25 crores on Morris. Probable reasons behind the buying of Morris could be his all round performance and also he can be a strong partner of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer. Royals went behind him because Jofra Archer was constantly performing outstanding but on the other hand there was no bowler to help him from the other side. So we can conclude that RR signed morris not as a all rounder but as a bowler.

2. Shivam Dube

Shivam dube was another costliest player bought by RR. He costed RR for 4.4 Crores. Shivam’s performance was very impressive in the last season and this could be the reason RR went behind him. He will also prove as a back-up for Ben Stokes as well. Apart from it there are less chances for Dube to be a part of best playing 11.

Conclusion

To conclude Rajasthan royals squad has been looking awesome till yet. The franchise has spent a huge amount of money in improving their squad. We hope you liked this post if so then do comment below and also share this article. We will meet you in the next wonderful post , till then bye-bye.
