Even in a short span of time, Joe was able to create such a positive impact on the franchise and the players around him. His energy around the group and the experience he brought to the Royals will be missed. We respect his decision totally and wish him success in everything he does.”

Rajasthan’s Latest Trade:

Before the trade deadline, Rajasthan Royal made one official trade as of now. They traded Devdutt Padikkal to Lucknow Super Giants and took Avesh Khan from the franchise. Other than that, there is no official news of RR’s retention or releases. They have a good team. Star players like Jos Buttler are there in the team. Youngster Yashasvi Jaiswal and Riyan Parag are in extremely good form. They will be a good asset to the team.

The Trade window will be closed on November 26. After that, on December 19, the auction for IPL 2024 will happen in Dubai. The number of players will take part in that auction.
