Steve Smith will be the captain for the remaining games for RR. This season RR has only 2 wins, for now, they are in the bottom of the table. Rahane is a true star in terms of batsman but when it comes to the captaincy he hasn’t had great success. It’s almost halfway in IPL and RR management look for some magic to happen in the squad.
“Rajasthan Royals will be led by the Australian batsman Steven Smith for the upcoming matches of the IPL. Ajinkya Rahane did a fantastic job in leading the team to the playoffs last year, however, the franchise now thinks a fresh approach is needed to bring their 2019 campaign back on track. Steve is one of the most innovative and successful captains in the world, in all formats of the game. We are confident he can lead the Royals to success” – RR Management
