IPL 2024: 3 reasons why Rajasthan Royals could be the dark horses for the title

In IPL, Rajasthan Royals won the inaugural edition back in 2008. Can they lift the prized trophy this time around?

IPL 2024: The winners of the inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Rajasthan Royals (RR) have made a perfect start to the ongoing edition. In 2024 IPL, Rajasthan Royals have so far won their all three games and are sitting comfortably on the second spot in points table. In this article, we will take a look at 3 possible reasons why Rajasthan Royals could be the dark horse for lifting the title this time around.

3 reasons why Rajasthan Royals can win IPL

Strong batting order

Despite their top-order not being in best of forms, Rajasthan Royals have been ruthless in their batting. The likes of Riyan Parag, Dhruv Jurel and even Ravichandran Ashwin have contributed with the bat. RR also possess several other destructive batters including their skipper Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal and even Shimron Hetmyer.

Disciplined bowling attack

Kiwi pacer Trent Boult has been prolific with the new ball in the ongoing edition. Boult is being equally supported by South African pacer Nandre Burger as the duo recently demolished the Mumbai Indians star-studded batting line-up. Apart from them, RR also possess two quality spinners including Ashwin and highest wicket-taker in IPL, Yuzvendra Chahal.

Sanju Samson’s captaincy

RR captain, Sanju Samson is being hailed by many cricket experts for his calm nature while leading the side. Samson has been exceptional with his bowling changes and his unique field placements. Samson has not shown his best with the bat as yet. However, the right-handed batter has the ability to turn the match in a span of few overs. RR skipper will be playing a huge role with the bat if his side wants to repeat the antics of IPL 2008.
