RR Captain in IPL 2024: Rajasthan Royals who won the first edition of the tournament in 2008 still waits to lift their second trophy in the Indian Premier League. After ending up as runner-up of the IPL 2022 edition, Rajasthan Royals are expected to make an impact in the IPL 2023 season.

But Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals failed to perform up to the mark and ended up in 5th position in the IPL 2023 points table with 7 victories off 14 league matches.

With a mini auction planned to be hosted for the 2024 edition, Rajasthan Royals might make use of this and may make a few changes to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season.
