Well, how about we consider the impact player rule, and look at the best possible playing 11 including the 12th player in the form of an impact substitute.

Rajasthan Royals will go with their regular top-order with a focus on Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, and Sanju Samson. The addition of Rovman Powell makes their lower-order stronger.
