IPL 2022 Rajasthan Royals – RR Owner, CEO, Coaching staff & Brand Value

Rajasthan Royals (RR) is the team that won the very first edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Way back in 2008, the Shane Warne-led franchise beat Chennai Super Kings in the final to lift the trophy. The team unearthed some fine talents like Yusuf Pathan, Ravindra Jadeja, Sanju Samson among others, giving them an ideal platform.

However, ever since 2008, RR have failed to win the IPL title ever again. Moreover, the franchise faced a two-year ban (2016 and 2017) after being involved in a match-fixing scandal. Since their return, Rajasthan has always gone for big names such as Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer etc. Although, their performance has only seen a dip.

Rajasthan Royals have had a poor run in the last three IPL seasons. They finished on the seventh position in 2021. Ahead of the 2022 edition, RR have retained skipper Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal.
