Rajasthan Royals -- Winners of the Inaugural Edition of IPL in 2008

Rajasthan Royals (Hindi: राजस्थान रॉयल्स) is a franchise cricket team based in Jaipur that played in the IPL. The team is led and coached by Shane Warne. The team's mascot is a lion named Moochu Singh. The team anthem, 'Halla Bol' is sung by Ila Arun. The promotional video that aired on national networks before and during the first edition of the IPL was directed by Indrajit Nattoji of Blink Pictures. Leicestershire spinner Jeremy Snape signed on with the Rajasthan Royals as their high-performance coach and team psychologist. They became the champions of the inaugural IPL tournament in 2008. The IPL has terminated the agreement with Rajasthan Royals on 10th October 2010 along with Kings Punjab for violations in agreement and breach of contract on the part of the franchise. BCCI president Shashank Manohar made clear that this expulsion is permanent and owners would not be given second chance. Despite this statement the BCCI lost court cases against the Royals and decided to stop legal action and allowed them to participate in IPL 2011 along with Kings XI Punjab.
