Rajasthan Royals


The Royals had to deal with an uncertain build up to the tournament, with questions about whether they’d be chucked out due to match-fixing allegations and dodgy dealings by the top brass, but they were given the go-ahead, and now have to get their heads in the game. After winning the first ever IPL, they dropped down the standings until last season, where some inspired captaincy from Rahul Dravid saw them finish third. But The Wall is no longer about as a player, leaving the skippering to Aussie all-rounder and Royals veteran Shane Watson, who must mash together a large group of inexperienced locals and mainly Antipodean foreigners.
Captain: Shane Watson

IPL Best: Winner (2008)
