Royals won the inaugural IPL edition
In 2008, Rajasthan Royals became the first ever franchise to win the IPL title.
The Shane Warne-led side trounced Chennai Super Kings by three wickets in the final at DY Patil Stadium.
It all came down to the wire as Royals clinched victory on the final delivery of the match.
Fast bowler Sohail Tanvir bagged the Purple Cap after having scalped 22 wickets.
How Royals fared in the 2019 season
In the 12th IPL edition, the Rajasthan-based franchise failed to qualify for the playoffs.
They finished seventh with 11 points in the standings, having won five and lost eight games.
Royals only managed to win one out of their first six games in the tournament.
Meanwhile, the departure of Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer in the second half further marred their campaign.
