Rajasthan Royals announced themselves as a formidable force in the Indian Premier League. Their performance was there for everyone to see in the inaugural edition of the lucrative Indian Premier League. They made it all the way to the finals of the competition and got the better of Chennai Super Kings in the final. As a result, Rajasthan Royals won their maiden IPL title.
Since then, they ran through a series of ups and downs in their journey. However, after 14 long seasons, they made it to the second IPL final in the 2022 edition under the captaincy of Sanju Samson. Needless to say, they surrendered at the hands of Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans in the epic final showdown at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Punjab Kings are one of the very few teams in the Indian Premier League who are yet to win the IPL title in the history of the tournament. They made it to the playoffs of the competition only twice in their history. The Mohali-based franchise made it to the semifinals of the competition in the inaugural edition. Since then, they ran through inconsistent results in the competition.
Eventually, they made it in the final for the first time but surrendered at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders in the epic climax. Punjab Kings have always been a franchise that boasted top-notch players at their disposal but failed to make use of the resources to better effect. As a result, they were unable to make a bid for the title challenge.
