3 players Rajasthan Royals could target as Jos Buttler’s backup in IPL 2024 Auctions

Rajasthan Royals need to buy a batter for the next season. This signing must be used as a backup for Jos Buttler. The English cricketer has been in poor form in recent months. He was not at his best in IPL 2023. Hence, RR would like to have a backup. This player can also be used as the backup for Shimron Hetmyer, as well. Here, we take a look at three players the Rajasthan Royals could target as Jos Buttler‘s backup in IPL 2024 Auctions.

1) Rachin Ravindra

Rachin Ravindra is yet to show his game in the T20 format. Hence, although he did well recently, he might not garner so much attention in the IPL 2024 Auctions.

Since RR has less money, they can target someone like Rachin. He would also address the issue of not having a left-arm spinner and help the balance of the side. As a backup, he would be a terrific name to have in the team.


2) Steve Smith

Steve Smith is one of the players the Rajasthan Royals could target as Jos Buttler’s backup in IPL 2024 Auctions. The Australian cricketer is in decent touch in the T20 format as an opener. Hence, it makes sense for RR to hire their former skipper.

Smith would be the ideal complement for Yashasvi Jaiswal. Even the likes of Sanju Samson could go harder because of the presence of Steve Smith. Hence, he is on this list.

3) Harry Brook

Harry Brook could double up as the backup of both Jos Buttler and Shimron Hetmyer. While Harry has experience opening the batting in the IPL, he is actually a genuine middle-order batter.


Since his last season’s performance was not exceptional, he might not go for a huge bid. Hence, RR has the chance to invest in the cricketer, who would also help the future of the side.
