Rajasthan Royals
At the outset, the team from India’s princely state didn’t quite command the kind of respect and interest that befits royalty. So when the Rajasthan Royals, led by Shane Warne, swept the opposition away and took home the first-ever IPL title, everyone was surprised. Sohail Tanvir and Shane Watson were the other big names that powered the side, but it was players like Yusuf Pathan, Swapnil Asnodkar and Ravindra Jadeja that shone.

However, the euphoria of that first title-win died down soon as Rajasthan failed to make it to the semi-finals of IPL 2009 and IPL 2010. The only players they retained before the IPL Player Auction 2011 were Shane Warne and Shane Watson. At the auction, Rajasthan minimally engaged in the frenetic bidding. They only bought six players including Ross Taylor, Rahul Dravid, Shaun Tait and Johan Botha. The presence of several Ranji Trophy stars in their ranks – Pankaj Singh, Akash Chopra, Ashok Menaria and Deepak Chahar – is spurring the Royals on in their quest for a second title-win.
