IPL 2018: Rajasthan Royals complete squad

Returning to the IPL after a span of two years, Rajasthan Royals made an instant impact at this year’s auctions when they went on to buy England’s star all-rounder Ben Stokes for a whopping amount of Rs 12.5 crore, making him the costliest player of the season.


Royals also used their first RTM card for Ajinkya Rahane, snatching him away from Punjab who had outbid Mumbai in the first place. The second RTM was used on veteran Indian speedster Dhawal Kulkarni, and Rajasthan also managed to secure the services of canny all-rounder Stuart Binny.
