Rajasthan Royals retain Dole, Raut Inaugural champions Rajasthan Royals on Saturday retained all-rounder Abhishek Raut and pacer Aditya Dole and signed up paceman Samad Falah for the fourth edition of the Indian Premier League. All the three players have represented Maharashtra in the domestic circuit. Fallah will make his IPL debut if he gets into the final XI in the Twenty20 tournament, beginning April 8. "Abhishek and Aditya have impressed in the previous editions and are established Royals, whilst Samad Fallah has been attracting our attention with his performances in the domestic season," Sean Morris, CEO, Rajasthan Royals said in a press release. "We are delighted to announce the signings of these players and we look forward to all three players showing the fans their talents when they sport the Rajasthan Royals colours in the IPL," he added. Aditya Dole is a right-arm medium-pacer who has played first-class matches for Maharashtra. His first Ranji Trophy game was against Rajasthan in December 2007 but his career highlight came the following year, when he took 10 for 63 in an innings for Maharashtra in a CK Nayudu Trophy match against Rajasthan. Raut made his first class debut against Tamil Nadu in 2005. His claim to fame was when he steered Rajasthan Royals to a victory over Deccan Chargers when he scored a match winning unbeaten 36 from 23 balls. Fallah is a left arm medium pacer who features in Maharashtra's first class squad. Samad began his successful innings in professional cricket in 2005 with Poona Club. His first class debut was against Himachal Pradesh in Dharamsala in 2007. He has taken over 100 wickets in 24 first class matches with a strike rate of 28.05 and has best figures of 8 for 98.

Oram takes injured Collingwood's IPL place Rajasthan Royals have signed New Zealand allrounder Jacob Oram as a replacement for the injured Paul Collingwood. Oram has been signed for $250,000, which is what the franchise paid for Collingwood in the player auction in January. IPL rules preclude teams from signing replacement players at a higher value than the player they are replacing. Oram had an excellent World Cup with the ball, taking 12 wickets at an average of 18.41. His standout performance came in New Zealand's upset victory over South Africa in the quarter-finals. In that game, he took 4 for 39 and pulled off a stunning catch to dismiss Jacques Kallis to earn the Man-of-the-Match award. "He [Oram] fits in that kind of slot like Collingwood, a middle-order batsman who bowls," a franchise official told ESPNcricinfo. "And he really hits the ball hard. Also his recent performance in the World Cup was fantastic, especially in the quarter-finals against South Africa. It is not the main reason [we picked him], but it helps to have a player in form." A few days ago Oram told One News that he was looking forward to a stint in the IPL, though he refused to divulge the name of the franchise he was negotiating with at the time. "I'm only a replacement for an injured guy, which is ironic, but I'm going to look forward to going over there and playing well, and who knows, maybe pick up a gig for next year and my career might just keep going on and on." Collingwood is set to undergo surgery for a damaged cartilage in his right knee next week, and will not recover in time to participate in the tournament that begins on April 8. oram my fav in my fav team :yay:
