ABOUT

About

Rajasthan Royals is team in the BCCI organised T20 league called Indian Premier League. It is one of the eight founding members of the league and also the inaugural winner of the IPL tournament. The team had been suspended for 2 years in 2016 and 2017 for various issues on and off the field.


The head coach of the Rajasthan Royals is Paddy Upton and the team is led by Ajinkya Rahane who amazingly took the team to the playoffs after having been almost eliminated. The team has had legends like Rahul Dravid and Shane Watson associated with them as well.


Fan Base

The fans of Rajasthan Royals are highly enthusiastic and have never let down the team even after so many losses and dry seasons in the league. Also, the social media pages of Rajasthan Royals are well followed and the team is also well received in Gujarat as well as Mumbai, where they have their secondary home grounds.


Achievements

The Rajasthan Royals have won only one IPL so far and that too in 2008, which was almost 11 years ago. After a victory in 2008, the best they have achieved is the third place in 2013 season of IPL. Apart from that, they have reached the playoffs twice in 2015 and 2018.


Club Trajectory

The Rajasthan Royals had a great start to their journey in the tournament and went on to lift the IPL Trophy in the inaugural season of the tournament, under the leadership of Shane Warne. However, the next two seasons were not at all great for them and they finished sixth in 2009 and seventh in the 2010 season of the IPL.


In 2011, the Rajasthan Royals finished sixth in the league whereas in 2012, they again slipped down to the seventh spot.


In 2013, the team qualified for the playoffs and finished third, but there was the spot fixing case which was a boot on their team and this also led to their suspension from the league for two years after the 2014 season, where they finished fifth in the league table.


In 2018, the Rajasthan Royals captain Steven Smith was banned in the ball tampering case against South Africa and this led to Ajinkya Rahane leading the side, who took the team to the playoffs after initial losses in the tournament.
