In IPL 2022, Rajasthan Royals (RR) enjoyed significant success until they lost to Gujarat Titans by seven wickets in the final in a humiliating manner. Predictably, just for the sake of one bad result, they did not go for wholesale changes and kept their core, consisting of Jos Buttler, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Sanju Samson among many stars, in the mix. As a result, they only had INR 13.2 Crore in the bag, 

On paper, the Royals arguably had the strongest playing XI in IPL 2022. All they required was an out-an-out all-rounder who could bat at No. 6 or 7 and also could finish the innings with a flurry. Without any doubt, their primary target at the mini-auction in Kochi would be someone who can fill that void.

The Royals brought in Jason Holder to fill the all-round department, that too at a reasonable price of ₹5.75 crores. Among their other signings, Joe Root was the most notable name.
