Strengths of RR IPL Squad 2018 for VIVO IPL 2018

The batting is the strength for the team with the likes of Rahane and Smith who can play the role of the anchor, Jofra Archer and D’Arcy Short for the role of pinch hitter and then at the end Ben Stokes as the perfect finisher. The team has also got some talented Indian players like Sanju Samson and Rahul Tripathi. The batting setup is nicely build up for every situation of the game and you would find players for every condition in the team.

Weakness of RR IPL Squad 2018 for VIVO IPL 2018

The only place of concern for the team would be its inexperienced spin attack for the death overs. The players like Krishnappa Gowtham, Ankit Sharma, Mahipal Lomror, Shreyas Gopal, and Zahir Khan are talented but would need some real character to help the team management feel confident about them in final overs. Along with this problem, another major cause of concern would be the inexperience in uncapped Indian players. The only player who are in the national foray are Rahane and Unadkat, rest all are still searching for their right time. Therefore, the skipper would have to really step up as the mentor and the role model to extract the talent out of these guys.
