Steve Smith: Rajasthan Royals' Complete Team a Formidable Force in IPL 2024

According to Steve Smith, the Rajasthan Royals appear to be the most competitive club in the Indian Premier League this year and should be difficult to beat.

With a 20-run victory over the Lucknow Super Giants in their season opener, RR had a great start to the season. The Royals' next game at Sawai Mansingh Stadium will be against Rishabh Pant and the Delhi Capitals.

Before the game on March 28, Smith spoke with Star Sports and noted that RR seemed to have everything covered this season.

The Australian celebrity identified Yuzvendra Chahal and R Ashwin, the spin pair, as well as openers Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal, as the key performers for the Jaipur-based team.

Right now, home teams are winning. They don't need to deviate from the norm just yet in my opinion.

This year, they appear as a cohesive one. They've covered every possible angle. I can't wait to watch their spinners again. Ashwin and Chahal are excellent. Potentially the two most devastating players in the IPL are the two guys up top. They will be difficult to beat if they get rolling and have a fantastic season, Smith added.
