Rajasthan Royals surprised everyone when they became the inaugural season champions in 2008. It was legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne who led RR to victory in the very first season. But since then, it took them the next 14 seasons to play their second IPL final in 2022. But unfortunately, Rajasthan lost their second final to the Gujarat Titans in 2022.
As a result, they finished the season as runners-up. But between those two finals, RR only played the playoffs in three seasons: 2013, 2015, and 2018. Rajasthan also missed two seasons (2016 and 2017) due to suspension. There are a number of teams that have enjoyed playing against Rajasthan in the league.
