Rajasthan Royals to reach IPL finals in 2023, says former Indian batter Mohammad Kaif.

Royals reached the final of the 2022 season but were pipped by Gujrat Titans.

Kaif believes his former team has what it takes to reach the final and win IPL 2023.

Rajasthan Royals has a strong team on paper with Ashwin and Yuzi Chahal.

Prasidh Krishna, a main bowler last time, is injured, but Trent Boult picks up wickets.

Rajasthan Royals had a season to remember in 2022, finishing second in the points table.

Standout performers last year include English batsman Jos Buttler and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.

Spin-maestro Ravichandran Ashwin, ace-pacer Trent Boult, and captain Sanju Samson also impressed.

Indian pacer Prasidh Krishna is out of IPL 2023 owing to a stress fracture.

Swing bowler Sandeep Sharma may replace Krishna and play for Rajasthan Royals in 2023.
