Rajasthan Royals have made it to their first IPL final since their triumph in the inaugural edition in 2008. Shane Warne was RR’s first ever captain, having led his team to a title win in the inaugural edition. RR had defeated the Chennai Super Kings in the finals to clinch their first IPL title. Warne played five seasons for the Rajasthan Royals from 2008-2012 and continued to be a part of the franchise in other capacities after that.
He, however, passed away on March 4 this year, a few weeks prior to IPL 2022 due to a heart attack. Warne is arguably the best spinner the world of cricket has seen. His legacy stands unparalleled and speaks volumes about his greatness. He was an integral part of the Rajasthan Royals. Being the first captain of the franchise and the only title winner, Warne enjoyed privileges of respect and love. He was instrumental in shaping the careers of many cricketers in and around the Rajasthan Royals. His demise was a huge loss for everyone who has known him personally and professionally.

RR vs RCB: Royal Challengers Bangalore choked again
While batting first, RCB posted an easy target of 158 runs. Royal Challengers Bangalore had started their season on a high note but their trail took the same road as of previous years. They began to flounder in the latter part of the season. They somehow managed to reach the knock-out stage of the tournament but could hold on for a long time. Last match’s hero Rajat Patidar tried to defy the evident loss but couldn’t help it this time. Dinesh Karthik too had a dull outing, first with the bat then with gloves. He dropped Buttler for a sitter when he was batting at 66. Buttler later proved menacing and clinched the game away from the yearning RCB.
