Rajasthan Royals IPL Fantasy Cricket Team

History of Rajasthan Royals Team In IPL

Rajasthan Royals is a cricket franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Founded in 2008, this franchise was extremely low-profile and least expensive among all eight franchises. They lifted the champions’ trophy in the very first season under the captaincy of Shane Warne. However, they have not managed to win an IPL title for the second time since.
RR is known for its unearthly hidden, high-potential talent and involvement in several controversies and scandals. In 2015, this team was banned for two years along with another popular franchise, CSK, according to the Lodha Committee inquiry, due to their involvement in cricket betting, which is completely illegal in India. In 2018, they came back and participated in the biggest T20 league, IPL.

Rajasthan Royals Retained Players 2022

Except for skipper Sanju Samson, all the teammates looked very uncontrolled throughout the season last year as they finished at no.7 of the points table, winning just five matches out of 14. They will try to forget about the 2021 season and go ahead. As per the rules and regulations of IPL, ahead of the coming season, Rajasthan Royals had an option to retain four players. But the franchise retained only three players, skipper Sanju Samson (14 cr), English batsman Joe Butler (10 cr), and uncapped 19-year-old Yashasvi Jaiswal (4 cr). Royals have a massive 62 crores INR to select the players from the mega auction to make a balanced squad for next year.
