Rajasthan Royals (RR) had a remarkable Indian Premier League season in 2022, during which they featured in their first final since 2008. With captain Sanju Samson, RR finished second in the points table and overcame Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to reach their second final.
Although they came short in the finals, there are many positives they can take to the next season. Like it has happened since IPL 2008, teams will have a chance to refresh their squads, and some players might be released by their respective franchises.
While RR might not make many changes, lets take a look at the three players who can hinder RRs ambitions if they are retained for the upcoming edition.
IPL 2023 Auction: 3 Players If Retained By Rajasthan Royals (RR) Can Cause Much Damage Than Good
Riyan Parag did not have one of his best seasons on the batting front. He has 183 runs in 17 matches to his name for IPL 2022. Despite that, he had the team managements full backing, and he played 17 games. However, the support did not help the former U-19 World Cup winner as he managed only one 50-plus score in the tournament.
The franchise will have to shell out the money to retain him and once again counting on the cricketer can be a costly experiment. However, if RR let him go, they can re-sign him in the IPL 2023 auction.
