Under the legendary Shane Warne, Rajasthan had an amazing start to their career in 2008 when they won the inaugural Indian Premier League. The franchise faced numerous difficulties after this, including being barred from the IPL twice, in 2010 and again in 2015 due to the Lodha Committee's inquiry. The squad added elite players like Trent Boult, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shimron Hetmyer, Devdutt Padikkal, and Yuzvendra Chahal to strengthen its lineup during the IPL 2022 mega auction. As a result, they had an incredible year and faced Gujrat Titans in the IPL final. Making their IPL debut, the Hardik Pandya-led Gujrat Titans overcame RR to win their first championship.
