Rajasthan Royals will make a comeback this season owing to a two-year ban in the year 2013. Prior to their suspension, they faced success in the form of a title win in 2008 and finished as the runner up team in 2013.
The inaugural champions have reunited with Shane Warne to mentor the players in their journey to regain the title.
The captain of the team was announced by mentor Shane Warne. Rajasthan Royals will be led by the current Australian captain, Steve Smith. Smith is being considered to be a big asset for Rajasthan Royals.

Under the leadership of Steve Smith along with the likes of Ben Stokes, Staurt Binny, Joss Buttler, Sanju Samson, Jaydev Unadkat and Ajinkya Rahane amongst others, the team definitely looks strong on the paper.
