Indian T20 League: Rajasthan Team

Surprise winners of the inaugural Indian T20 League in 2008, Rajasthan have reached the play-offs on three other occasions. After three poor seasons, including finishing rock-bottom for the first time in 2020, they are once again handily placed to challenge the more fancied teams.

Led by the talented wicketkeeper batter Sanju Samson, the team have assembled a good squad in the 2022 mega auction. Devdutt Padikkal joins Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler at the top of the order. Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravi Ashwin and Trent Boult offer plenty of wicket-taking potential.

With their assortment of coaches reporting to Kumar Sangakkara, Rajasthan are one of those franchises set up to make the most of their resources. The team is known to unearth obscure, high potential talent on the big stage.

Team Rajasthan Origin

Founded in 2008, the Rajasthan team was banned for two seasons (2016-17) because of a previous co-owner’s involvement in a corruption scandal. Though they’ve played home games at other venues like Ahmedabad, their home ground for the most part has been the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur, which is something of a fortress given how often they’ve dominated their opponents there.

Team Rajasthan Owners: Indian T20 League

The Rajasthan franchise is co-owned by Emerging Media, Lachlan Murdoch and Redbird Capital Partners. It’s the team with the lowest valuation in the Indian T20 League, if you go by the figures.

Sanju Samson: Rajasthan Team Captain

A regular in the Rajasthan ranks since he was 18, there has never been any doubt about Samson’s talent. His struggle has been to match that with consistent performances. Only twice, in 2018 and 2021, has he crossed 400 runs in a season. But as a century on his captaincy debut last season showed, the responsibility of being a leader might just spur him to greater heights.
