|While most of their rivals hitting the headlines hard Jaipur-Rajasthan Royals has maintained the low profile throughout be it during the players' auctios or during the rechristening of the team. The only time Royals drew attention amid the cacophony of anthems, albums, slogans et al of their eastern counterparts (read as Kolkata Knight Riders) was when they signe the T20-type cricketer Dimitri Mascarenhas-the lone Englishman. Going by the team Royals have (as on March 15 2008). The likes of Smith, Munaf, Kaif, Tanvir, Younis Langer in their ranks provides an ample evidence of Royals' intent in having specialists rather then bits-and-pieces players.|
Despite not having a designated Icon player the Royals' surprisingly maintained a low key during the auction, and in the end got penalized by the IPL organizing committee for failing to meet the minimum bidding criteria of $3.3 million.
