Rajasthan Royals added depth to its lineup with the inclusion of West Indies all-rounder Jason Holder, who was a steal at INR 5.75 crore. Holder is more than capable of filling Jimmy Neesham’s shoes, who never really found his feet in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The IPL 2022 runner-up added to its spin arsenal by roping in Murugan Ashwin and Adam Zampa and also secured former England captain Joe Root, who can anchor the middle-order in testing conditions. Holder’s inclusion means Royals bat deep, with Holder at No. 7, who also doubles up as an able fifth bowling option and third seamer.
