IPL 2018 Updates : Steve Smith has been named as captain of Rajasthan Royals for the upcoming IPL 2018. The announcement comes less than a couple of weeks after the 2008 champions appointed Shane Warne as their mentor.
“It is great to be back at [Rajasthan] Royals. I was with the franchise a few years back. We had a great time. Thanks for giving me the honour and privilege of leading the Royals. I am looking forward to have a successful campaign. Looking forward to working with Warne,” Smith said.
Rajasthan Royals make their comeback from the two-year ban and will play their first fixture of the 2018 season against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Hyderabad on April 9.
