Rajasthan Royals, often called RR, are a franchise cricket team from Jaipur, Rajasthan. The team was founded in 2008, the same year the inaugural edition of the IPL (Indian Premier League) occurred. The Rajasthan Royals team won the championship, despite not being the favourite.

The RR home ground is the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur, while the secondary stadiums are Narendra Modi in Ahmedabad and Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.

Emerging Media acquired ownership of the team with a $67-million bid. As of 2021, the RR owner is Manoj Badale-led Emerging Media IPL Ltd, a company with a 65% stake. Other minority stakeholders include RedBird Capital Partners and Lachlan Murdoch.

Rajasthan Royals will participate in the IPL 2022 with a newly built team that will, hopefully, boost their previously underwhelming performance.

In the following article, you can learn everything about the RR IPL 2022 team, auction, and predictions. Let’s begin.

What Did RR Do During the IPL 2022 Auction?

The IPL 2022 auction is officially over. All IPL teams, including Rajasthan Royals, have created the final lineup of players participating in the upcoming matches.

The RR IPL auction 2022 started with the team retaining three players for 28 crores — Yashaswi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson, and Jos Buttler. Royals entered the two-day mega auction with 62 crores.

At the end of the RR auction 2022, the team had 95 lakhs left and 24 players. RR acquired nine uncapped players (including one retained) for 9.3 crores while paying 55.75 crores for 13 capped players (without the two retained).

Finally, the RR team paid 32.3 crores for six players from the IPL 2022 squad. The most expensive player bought in the auction was Prasidh Krishna — Royals invested ten crores. The second most costly RR player was Shimron Hetmyer (8.5 crores).

Currently, Rajasthan Royals seem to have the best five players on the roster — Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Yashaswi Jaiswal, Shimron Hetmyer, and Devdutt Padikkal. The only weak side of the RR lineup is the batting. Riyan Parag will start, despite his inconsistent performance. He was the only choice, mainly because the tested resources were lacking.

What Is RR Final Squad for IPL 2022?

Rajasthan Royals are ready to start their battle for another IPL title. Trevor Penney, a former Zimbabwean cricketer, known for his fielding, is the RR coach in the 2022 season.

Rajasthan Royals will go into the IPL 2022 with Sanju Samson as the team’s captain. He assumed the position in 2021. Samson is a top-order batsman and wicket-keeper with an impressive track record. In his first match as RR’s captain, he scored a century, becoming the first IPL team leader to achieve such success.

The RR team 2022 has retained three players dominating the global cricket scene. Jos Buttler is a T-20 legend, so keeping him as the RR XI is a no-brainer. He is set to open the batting along with Jaiswal and will serve as backup keeper for Samson.

Adding Shimron Hetmyer to the list of RR players 2022 will help the team deal with the finisher’s role.

Royals have introduced high-quality Indian players to their roster, as they’ve been dependent on overseas contingent in the previous years. This change in strategy should improve their performance and boost the odds of claiming their second IPL championship title.

Below, you can see the complete lineup of the RR squad 2022:

  • Sanju Samson — Wicket-keeper (RR captain 2022)
  • Jos Buttler — Wicket-keeper

RR’s Biggest Rivalries in IPL

Rajasthan Royals have gone through fierce competitions with other IPL teams throughout the years. The most notable RR rivals are King XI Punjab, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mumbai Indians, and Chennai Super Kings.

Many cricket fans would agree that the RR vs KXIP rivalry is the most underrated. These two teams have gone head-to-head 23 times during IPL, with the Royals winning 13. They first met in 2008, during the inaugural edition of IPL, where Royals won by six wickets. Royals continued dominating until 2014 when KXIP won both matches.

Another unexpected rivalry is the MI vs RR. The five-time IPL champions have gone up against Royals 25 times in the past IPL events, winning 13 times. Until 2014, Mumbai Indians showed off their skills and scored nice wins. However, after the underwhelming performance in 2014, Rajasthan Royals changed their approach and won consecutive matches in 2018 and 2019.

The RR vs CSK rivalry isn’t a prominent one, but it doesn’t mean it’s non-existent. Royals have shown great promise at the beginning of IPL but have failed to maintain their composure and robust performance. Despite the CKS dominance, RR has managed to don a stunning batting performance in 2021.

Finally, we have to mention the RR rivalry with Sunrisers Hyderabad. It’s been a short but exciting rivalry with the teams going up against each other without getting high scores. However, those low-scoring performances were the best ones for both teams.
