Rajasthan Royals 2020: RR Team Squad, RR Schedule and Stats

Rajasthan Royals are the inaugural champions of IPL 2008 under the captaincy of Shane Warne. They haven’t been much consistent since then but have managed to reach play-offs a couple of times.

Ajinkya Rahane who has now moved to Delhi Capitals was the key player in that team. Currently Steve Smith is the captain of the team. The team has match-winner overseas players like Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes but lacks a strong Indian core.

Rajasthan Royals (RR) is a T20 franchise team in the India Premier League (IPL). The RR franchise is one of the 8 original teams that participated in the inaugural IPL 2008. The Rajasthan Royals went on to win the inaugural season of the IPL way back in 2008, and the side was captained by Shane Warne. They also finished as the runner up in 2013 Champions League Twenty20 (now defunct) led by Rahul Dravid.

The franchise team were banned from IPL in 2015 for two years. which led to their exclusion from IPL 2016 and IPL 2017. The suspension was handed in the infamous 2013 IPL betting case. Rajasthan Royals returned to IPL in 2018, along with the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

Ajinkya Rahane is the highest run-scorer for the Team with 2705 runs, while Shane Watson with 67 wickets is the leading wicket-taker.
