After winning the inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Rajasthan Royals never really made an impression in the world's biggest T20 tournament. In a downward spiral, they finished last, winning just six matches, last season which was held in the UAE. In 2019, they finished seventh. (More Cricket News)

Looking to start afresh, the Jaipur-based franchise not only sacked their captain Steve Smith, but also released the former Australia skipper and veteran Indian wicketkeeper Robin Uthappa, besides parting ways with head coach Andrew McDonald. They now have a new captain in talented Sanju Samson. And have reinforced the squad by adding Chris Morris (for a record fee), Shivam Dube, Mustafizur Rahman and Liam Livingstone.
