One of the very first and quite successful teams, Rajasthan Royals has had a good overall experience in the IPL tournament. Based in Jaipur the team represents the state of Rajasthan in the T20 format. RR won the maiden season of IPL back in 2008 making it one of the strongest teams despite their poor start at the beginning of the inaugural season. The team has had a number of great players in its squad including Shane Warne, who led the team to its first win, Rahul Dravid who led the team to the finals in the 2013 season, ending up as the runners-up, current captain and leading run scorer Ajinkya Rahane and many more. The team has a reputation of revealing tremendous talent from underappreciated players but has also been under scrutiny from the very start for a number of controversies surrounding the franchise. The franchise is owned and operated by Manoj Badale at the moment with other investors involved. The team underwent an expulsion in the 2010 season due to a feud involving BCCI and Lalit Modi, to which IPL announced the they have terminated the team and in response of this the team underwent a legal battle in the Mumbai High court against IPL. The battle was however not very straightforward and the team went on the have a negotiation with the IPL in which they were allowed to be a part of the tournament for six weeks. Ultimately, the Bombay high court ruled against BCCI and to protect the Councils reputation and to avoid any legal battles, BCCI halted any actions against the team. However in 2015, the team was banned for two years following the Lodha Panel but its then owner, Raj Kundra, banned for life.
Coming out of all the controversies, the team is all set to participate in the 2019 season and would want to have a good run in the 12th IPL.
Astrological Perception of RR for IPL 2019
Our prominent Astrologers at Astroyogi have done a thorough research on the astrological aspect of the team’s chances in the upcoming season. The predictions have been made emphasising on the facts and figures. Based on the predictions, here is an overview of what could be expected of the team in the IPL 2019.
Based on the first letter of the Rajasthan Royals, the ruling sing of the team is Libra. The ruling planet of Libra is Venus and the beginning of the 12th season of IPL is taking place in the Libra ascendant in the same sign. Ruling star Venus is in the 5th house along with Mercury. Mars sits in the 8th house while Sun is in the 6th house. Rahu is in the 9th house which is the house of fortune and Saturn is along with Ketu in the 3rd house, all of which is going to be unfavourable for RR. These conditions are creating a negative outcome for the team and will work as a hurdle in the road to success. However the days on which RR is set to play might change their fortunes.
On the basis of numerology, the letters in the name Rajasthan Royals produce the number 2 to be their ruling number which is the number of Moon. Based on the short form KXIP the number identified is 4 which is governed by Rahu itself and in both the cases the stars are indicating troubles for Rajasthan Royals.
The team might have a difficult season for them and their chances to reach the semis are very thin.
