RR Team History
Rajasthan Royals were the first-ever champions of the Indian Premier League. They won the very first edition of the tournament back in 2008. The opponents in the final were the Chennai Super Kings, but Rajasthan Royals came out on top and took the trophy home.
Unfortunately, afterward, it has only been downhill for the team from Rajasthan. They have failed to qualify for the final in any of the other seasons after the inaugural one, and have qualified for the playoffs only thrice.
In the 2009 edition, they finished at the 3rd last spot, I.E., at the sixth position. One year later, they were at the 2nd last. The same two positions repeated for the next two years. RR finished at the 6th spot in 2011, and at the 7th in 2012. Finally, they qualified for the playoffs in 2013 but failed to go past the 3rd position.
2014 was another disappointing year for the Rajasthani fans as their team got eliminated once again in the group stage. They went to the playoffs in 2015, but couldn’t go all the way. Afterward, the team got suspended in a spot-fixing case in the same year, alongside CSK. As a consequence, they did not play the 2016 and 2017 editions of the Indian Premier League.
Rajasthan Royals returned in 2018 and again got knocked out of the playoffs as the 4th best team. Lastly, the last two years have been very poor for them. 2019 saw them finishing at the 7th, and 2020 was their worst year in history as they got out of the tournament ending at the last 8th spot.
RR Team Coaches
Rajasthan Royals have part ways with their head coach Andrew McDonald. However, no need to worry because the all-time great, Kumar Sangakkara, who is currently the team director, is expected to step in the shoes of the head coach as well.
With Kumar, Trevor Penney will be his assistant coach. On the other hand, SairajBahutule is the spin-bowling coach of the team, and Rob Cassell is the fast-bowling coach. Dishant Yagnik is serving the duty as the fielding coach of the Rajasthan Royals squad 2021.
