IPL 2018: Stokes and Warne wish Rajasthan Royals all the best

Rajasthan Royals plays Kolkata Knight Riders in the Eliminator tonight.

Rajasthan Royals have somehow sneaked through to the playoffs. (IANS)

The Rajasthan Royals have gone through a very indifferent Indian Premier League season. The team returning from a 2-year exile has not been able to stitch together games of consistent performances but has somehow managed to sneak through to the playoffs this season.

The Ajinkya Rahane led side has ridden their way on the back of exceptional performances on a given day. They won just 7 games and found some results going their way to finally reach the first envisioned destination. Jos Buttler who was absolutely magnificent for them, while he was available. He is not and hence, RR needs as many wishes coming their way as possible before playing the Eliminator against the Kolkata Knight Riders tonight.

Their mentor Shane Warne, whom many players termed as an inspiring father figure in the camp, is not around with the team for the occasion as he had personal commitments but one part of his heart is with his team.

He recently posted on the social media network, Instagram, an image with the caption, "Good luck to all the @rajasthanroyals boys tonight - you’ve got this ! I have a feeling that all the boys will fire tonight & get the job done ! But I have a little feeling in my water that @imsanjusamson will do something super special & don’t forget the spinning brotherhood too #spintowin @ic3_odi @gowthamyadav1 & @shreyasg0519 #ipl2018"

Unfortunately for Rajasthan their potential game definer Ben Stokes will be missing the game too. Stokes has left to do his international duties with England. He also took to Instagram to express his sentiment. Posting an image with a caption, "Good luck today to this group of legends @rajasthanroyals... #hallabol"
