They are also known to regularly introduce new and sensational talents to IPL, like Riyan Parag recently and Sanju Samson earlier. They have outperformed mighty favorites in some seasons and have failed to live up to expectations during others on random occasions. Rajasthan Royals is perhaps the most unpredictable team in IPL.
