Legendary West Indies cricketer Brian Lara shared his insights into Rajasthan Royals’ recent struggles in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. Despite already securing a spot in the playoffs, RR’s recent downturn in form has raised concerns about their championship aspirations.

In a conversation, Lara emphasized the challenging situation facing RR, stressing the importance of bouncing back from their slump. He noted the lack of runs on the board and highlighted the difficulty of overcoming a decline. Despite entering playoffs, Lara expressed uncertainty about how RR would manage to lift themselves up.

“Ya not enough runs on the board and when you get onto that slump or that decline, its gets really hard RR are showing that it becomes really hard to get out of that decline.

After an impressive start to the season, RR suffered their fourth consecutive defeat against Punjab Kings, further complicating their bid for a top-two finish. Lara stressed the importance of RR’s upcoming fixture against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), stating that a convincing win is crucial to secure a favorable playoff position.

“They have to win the next game convincingly and hope SRH don’t win their next two games to run one or two. You want to qualify on top of the table. It’s very hard to explain, they are a very good side. They need to introspect what happened in the first half and what is happening now,” Lara added.
