Who is the owner of Rajasthan Royals (RR)?

The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a popular cricket league that attracts millions of fans from all over the world. The Indian cricket regulating board, the BCCI, hosts the IPL every summer and has grown to become one of the world’s most valuable sports competitions. The IPL uses a T20 format, resulting in quick yet exciting games with an intense focus on entertainment.

In the Indian Premier League, ten teams from various Indian states or cities compete. Another factor in the IPL’s enormous popularity is the tendency of fans to support their home or favorite team. There is no IPL team as well-known as the Rajasthan Royals. It has a huge fan base in North India, particularly in Rajasthan, and won the first IPL in 2008. But there is also an unpleasant history between the team and its owners. So who is the current owner of Rajasthan Royals?

From the perspective of stakeholding, Manoj Badale of Emerging Media appears to be the rightful owner. Yet, in fact, Lachlan Murdoch and RedBird Media—who will still control the Rajasthan Royals in 2024—as well as other majority and minority shareholders own the team. However, Manoj Badale makes the majority of the team’s choices. Manoj Badale, an Indian-born British businessman and venture capitalist, was born on December 31, 1967, in Dhule, Maharashtra.
