General Thoughts: 

First day of the IPL 2022 Mega Auction was very good for Rajasthan. However, they went haywire on Day 2. Many middle-order players like Rassie and Daryl Mitchell were bought by them in the last accelerator. But the team is much better than last season. Top heavy again. They have to find a way to fit, Yashasvi, Devdutt and Butler in the order. Fast bowling is top-notch. They generally have a problem of spoiling their own broth.
