The Rajasthan Royals side groomed many youngsters in the past, from Swapnil Asnodkar to Yusuf Pathan to Ravindra Jadeja. They all represented the Royals side in the inaugural edition in 2008. From which the likes of Yusuf Pathan and Ravindra Jadeja went on to make it big at a later stage.
Someone like Jadeja who is one of the best all-rounders in world cricket was considered a ‘Rockstar’ by their then captain Shane Warne. Such was Jadeja’s charisma that even today, Shane Warne feels that Ravindra Jadeja should’ve stayed with the Royals side a little longer or should’ve still been a part of the franchise in Pink.

“I think the best fielder in the world would have to be, it’s a toss between Jadeja and Maxwell (Glenn). Jadeja hits the wicket so many times. It was great fun to play with the rockstar back in 2008. I wish he was still with us,” said Warne in an Instagram live session of Rajasthan Royals.
Shane Warne then went on to talk about their upcoming game against Kings XI Punjab where he praised KL Rahul’s century in the last game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Also how Glenn Maxwell can pose a problem for the side since he hasn’t yet fired in the tournament.
“It’s a dangerous game against King XI Punjab, KL Rahul was outstanding in the last game, wow what sensational innings. Glenn Maxwell who hasn`t fired too much yet in IPL we saw made a brilliant hundred in the UK for Australia. He is a dangerous player little bit worried about Maxi (maxwell) because he hasn’t quite fired a shot yet,” he added.
