In any case, it is certain that Rajasthan will drop some of the players who were in the squad this time before their next auction. By releasing the players, they can use the money in their pockets to buy the players for certain positions they want. These are the players who are most likely to be left out of the Rajasthan Royals squad next season.
New Zealand all-rounder Daryl Mitchell has been acquired by the Rajasthan Royals for Rs 75 lakh in this IPL star auction. But Mitchell only got a chance in two games this time. Mitchell, who scored just 33 runs, could not take any wickets. Mitchell, who did not play a significant role in the Rajasthan Royals’ strategy, is expected to be dropped by the team next season.
New Zealand all-rounder James Neesham has been named in the Rajasthan squad for Rs 1.5 crore this season. Like Daryl Mitchell, Neesham only had two chances. He scored 31 runs in this match. Rajasthan did not handle Neesham, the best all-rounder, well this time around, much to the disappointment of the fans. Neesham, who did not play a significant role in the team this time, is likely to be released by the Royals next season.
South African all-rounder Corbin Bosch has been signed by the Rajasthan Royals to replace Nathan Coulternail, who has been ruled out of action this season due to injury. But Bosch, who joined the team for Rs 20 lakh, never got a chance to play in a single match. Nathan Coulternail is sure to return to the team next season. And that Bosch will be out of the team.
Karun Nair has won the Rajasthan auction for Rs 1.4 crore. Karun, who got the chance to play in 3 matches this time, could score only 16 runs. The player who failed to take advantage of the opportunities available to him is very likely to be released by the team next season.

Razi Wonder Duson
Razi Vander Dusan from South Africa was one of the best foreign players in the Rajasthan Royals squad this season. But they gave the player a chance in just 3 games. Unfortunately, he did not shine in any of these games. Fans unanimously say that Rajasthan should have backed a world-class batsman like Razi.
It would be foolish for the Himalayas to exclude a player like Razi from the team, but given Rajasthan’s past history, they are very likely to be ready for it. With a player like Hetmeyer in the midfield, leaving the Royals is a good thing for Van der Dussen’s IPL career.
Right-arm pacer Navdeep Saini has been acquired by the Rajasthan Royals for Rs 2.6 crore in this IPL auction. Sainik has been selected in only two matches in the playing XI this season. He took 3 wickets but bowled in a bad economy at 12.00. If the player is released from the team next season, Rajasthan will be able to buy a better player at auction for that amount. So it is doubtful that Saini will be in the Pink Army next season.
