On the other hand, Rajasthan has all the ammunition, in fact, some of the most expensive ones, but the players haven’t just lived up to their billing. Rahane and Samson are performing well but no support from Ben Stokes and Jos Butler couldn’t see them through.

On the bowling front, Royals’ Jofra Archer has claimed six wickets in the two matches that he has played so far. But Shreyas Gopal and K Gowtham are struggling with their form.
