The Rajasthan cricket team is a cricket team which represents the Indian state of Rajasthan. The team emerged champions of the Ranji Trophy in 2010/11 and 2011/12 seasons, after finishing runners-up eight times (1960–1974). It is currently in the Ranji Trophy Elite group. "Rajasthan cricket team" is also popularly known as "Team Rajasthan" and it is run by the Rajasthan Cricket Association.
Rajputana's first recorded match came in the 1928/29 Delhi Tournament against Aligarh, with the Rajputana Cricket Association being formed shortly thereafter in 1931 at Ajmer.[n 1] Rajputana's inaugural appearance in first-class cricket came in November 1933 against the touring Marylebone Cricket Club at Mayo College Ground in Ajmer, which resulted in a heavy innings defeat. The team entered the Ranji Trophy for the first time in the 1935/36 season, playing its first match in the competition against Central India, losing by a heavy margin. The team played in the following seasons Ranji Trophy, again losing to Central India, but this time by the reduced margin of just two wickets. Rajputana gained its first win in first-class cricket against Lionel Tennyson's touring eleven, with victory by two wickets in 1937. The team lost its only match against Southern Punjab in the 1938/39 Ranji Trophy, however the following season it recorded its first Ranji Trophy victory against Delhi, winning by 7 wickets. However it lost its following match against Southern Punjab by the margin of an innings and 190 runs. With the onset of World War II, cricket in India was somewhat disrupted, but first-class cricket continued to function.
