Rahul Dravid reckons the main reason behind the success of the Rajasthan Royals over the last two seasons is the fact that the team has no egos.

According to Dravid, in the changing room of the Royals, every player is treated the same way, whether he is an international superstar or a young Indian player coming through the ranks.

The Royals squad actually don’t have that many big names at all. You leave out one or two guys, the likes of Shane Watson and Smith and there is no stardom.

So, it’s been slightly easy for Dravid and co. to create that sort of light atmosphere in the camp.

Sometimes, what happens is that if there are too many stars in the squad, they bring their egos with them. They want to be given special treatment and that creates a tough situation for the team management.

In such situations, the team don’t manage to gel either and that affects the performances.

Cricket is a team game. It does not matter if a certain individual is going well or not. If the team is winning, all is good and for a team to win consistently, it’s important that the atmosphere in the camp is good.

And, that’s why; we have seen Royals being so consistent in the recent times. They have got such a good spirit among themselves.

Dravid himself has been responsible for making the Royals’ changing room such a happy place to be in. Continue reading 'Rahul Dravid reckons the main reason behind the success of the Rajasthan Royals'»

The Rajasthan Royals are one of those Indian Premier League franchises that do not have too many star names.

They are a low budget team basically, but, the reason why they are so important to the league and even to the Indian Cricket is that they always unleash a few exciting talents.

Every season, you would see somebody new in that Royals jersey that would just catch your eyes.

This season, it’s the young Deepak Hooda.

The 19-year old right handed batsman, who had not played at all in the Indian Premier League before the ongoing season, has shown extraordinary hitting abilities with the bat.

The tall, well built player hits the ball so hard that it made the Royals captain Shane Watson call him a ‘special player’ the other day.

Normally, the young players coming through the ranks in India rely mostly on timing.

But, Hooda is different. He is a bit of a muscleman and he hits huge sixes. His innings against Delhi Daredevils, the stage at which he came in and the way he took the bowlers apart, it was wonderful to watch.

And, he is very young. With a couple of proper domestic seasons and a bit of limited-over international cricket in between, he would get better. Continue reading 'Rajasthan Royals performing best even after Low Budgeting'»
