The first ever winner of IPL season, Rajasthan Royals, created the history in 2008 in the opening season of IPL. Rajasthan Royals is the first franchise to win an Indian Premier League (IPL) title. In order to create the history, Rajasthan defeated Chennai Super Kings from three wickets and under the captaincy of Shane Warne, the victory became possible.
After the ban of 2 years, the team made its re-entry in the 2018 IPL season but due to the absence of regular skipper Steve Smith, Rajasthan ended up at the fourth position.
