Rajasthan Royals (RR) made history in Indian Premier League (IPL) by winning the inaugural title in 2008. The tournament win was inspired by Australian all-rounder Shane Watson’s brilliant all-round performance and Sohail Tanvir’s lethal bowling spells. Tanvir’s 6-14 was the best figure by any bowler in IPL history until recently. In IPL 2019, Rajasthan Royals are going to try their best to win the tournament and fans will be looking for their tickets to watch them live.
Players like Ben Stokes, Ashton Turner, Steve Smith, Ish Sodhi, Jofra Archer, and Jos Buttler are some of the overseas stars complementing the local big guns including Ajinkya Rahane, Jaydev Unadkat, Stuart Binny and Varun Aaron to make a strong case for the title this year.
RR’s IPL History
Rajasthan Royals started with a bang in the first edition of IPL, however, it has been a bit of a downward slide for the first ever champions of the league. The team was suspended for two years, the same as Chennai Super Kings following charges of betting by the owners.
The team’s suspension ended in 2018 as the team ended at the 4th spot. The team got the 6th and 7th position in 2009 and 2010 respectively and then again in 2011 and 2012. The bad years ended when the team clinched third place in 2013.
