Shane Warne is very excited to be back in the Rajasthan Royals camp and he is very confident that the team will do well in this year’s competition. Shane Warne is the 2nd highest wicket taker in Test cricket with 708 wickets to his name. he is also the first captain ever to lift the IPL trophy when Rajasthan Royals won the inaugural edition of this prestigious league. He was also the 2nd most wicket taking bowler after Sohail Tanvir with 19 wickets at an average of 21.26 in 15 matches. After winning the first ever edition of IPL, Rajasthan Royals has never made it to the finals of IPL. Now with Shane Warne coming as mentor of the team, RR are definitely looking for going one step up and lift the trophy.
