Hetmyer was one of the costliest purchases from West Indies alongside Jason Holder, who was purchased for Rs. 8.75 crores by Lucknow Supergiants.
Earlier, he was released by Delhi Capitals ahead of the IPL 2022 mega-auctions. He had a decent 2021 season for the Delhi Capitals, where he scored 242 runs off 14 games at a strike rate of 168.05.
In the previous season, Shimron Hetmyer who usually bat lower down the order played some stunning cameos, including an unbeaten 53 off 25 in a losing cause against RCB.
Meanwhile, the Rajasthan-based franchise hired Sri Lankan legend Lasith Malinga as their fast bowling coach for the upcoming IPL 2022. Rajasthan Royals will kickstart their IPL 2022 campaign with a match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Pune on March 29.
