Rajasthan Royals had a memorable run during the 15th edition of the IPL as they reached the final of the mega event. However, the Jaipur-based franchise failed to cross the final hurdle as they lost the final to Gujarat Giants. Rajasthan Royals looked like a team to beat from their very first game and they deservingly finished 2nd in the league standings.
The team management did a wonderful job in the auction ahead of the Indian Premier League 2022 as they covered almost all bases while assembling the squad. While it worked wonders for the Royals, there were still some chinks in their armor. The franchise will look to make further amendments ahead of next season.
Hence, in this post, we will take a look at the 5 players Rajasthan Royals can release ahead of IPL 2023.
5. Anunay Singh
Anunay Singh is one of the most promising young talents in Bihar’s domestic cricket circuit. Following a string of impressive performances in domestic cricket, the Royals from Rajasthan picked Anunay Singh for INR 20 lakh in the auction ahead of IPL 2022.
However, Rajasthan Royals had a stacked Indian pace attack, including Prasidh Krishna, Kuldeep Sen, and Navdeep Saini. Hence, Anunay Singh failed to break into the playing XI and warmed the bench throughout the season.
The youngster is behind in the pecking order and it is unlikely for him to get any game time in IPL 2023 as well. Hence, with enough backups available, Rajasthan Royals might opt to release Anunay Singh ahead of IPL 2023.
