Rajasthan Royals History

Golden Start For RR Squad

When the Indian Premier League started, nobody really expected the Rajasthan Royals to lift the cup. They didn’t have the flamboyance of Royal Challenger Bangalore, the star-power of Kolkata Knight Riders, or the money of the Mumbai Indians. A fairly low-profile team and the least expensive out of the original eight, RR managed to debut in style.

Under the leadership of then captain Shane Warne they became the first champions of IPL. They continued their stellar run and were the runners-up at the Champions League 2013 as well. Yusuf Pathan’s performance in the inaugural edition was appreciated by everyone and Shane Watson won the Man of the Tournament award. He scored 472 runs and took 17 wickets.

Rajasthan Royals Match-Fixing Scandal

Three members of the Rajasthan Royals team- Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila, and Ankeet Chavan were arrested by Delhi Police for spot-fixing. There were reports that the players confessed about their role. The players were immediately suspended by Rajasthan Royals.

Former co-owner of Rajasthan Royals, Raj Kundra was also suspended and his shares were bought back by other owners. Subsequently, both teams- Rajasthan and Chennai Super Kings were suspended for two years.

In the year 2018, the team was back in the IPL and ready to start afresh.

Rajasthan Royals Players Discovering Hunt

While most teams in the Indian Premier League spend crores to sign on the top names, Rajasthan Royals IPL team management has preferred discovering and supporting upcoming talent. The team has signed on relatively unknown names for frugal prices and turned them into cricketing stars. Most of these players have become permanent fixtures in their respective national teams and big names now.

Take the example of Australian cricketing sensation Shane Watson or Steve Smith. Closer home, Ajinkya Rahane, Dhawal Kulkarni, Sanju Samson, and many others have come into the spotlight after their sensational performances in the IPL.
