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.
