Rajasthan Royals Players

Rajasthan Royals was the least active franchise during the player auction. The team does not have a designated icon player, which saved a lot of cap space for the franchise. However the franchise was surprisingly low key during the auction, and in the end got penalized by the IPL organizing committee for failing to meet the minimum bidding criteria of $3.3 million. The highest bid by Rajasthan Royals was for the Indian middle order batsman Mohammad Kaif, who came off the board at $675,000. Shane Warne has been named the coach and captain of the side. The Royals are unique as they are the only side to have an English cricketer in their squad, Hampshire's all rounder Dimitri Mascarenhas. Rajasthan Royals Team:
Shane Warne (Captain), Graeme Smith, Mohammad Kaif, Justin Langer, Younis Khan, Anoop Revandkar, Taruwar Kohli, Niraj Patel, Kamran Akmal, Yusuf Pathan, Dimitri Mascarenhas, Shane Watson, Sohail Tanvir, Ravindra Jadeja, Siddharth Trivedi, Swapnil Asnodkar, Sumit Khatri, Munaf Patel, Morne Morkel, Pankaj Singh
