Dimitri Mascarenhas: The Booster of Rajasthan Royals in IPL

IPLT20 is an Indian formatted Twenty20 cricket tournament. The BCCI setup it to protest ICL and ICC is backing up it. It was one kind of tournament like English Premier League (EPL) where foreign cricketer will take part beside the Indian players. Some of cricketers have joined the inaugural tournament except the English. The English County Cricket is running at the same time of Indian Premier League.

Mascarenhas' arrival will bolster Rajasthan, who are now second in the IPL standings after three-successive victories, and he hoped that his team would be able to sustain their momentum. "The biggest challenge for the Royals from hereon is to achieve consistent winning results. The team has had an amazing run after the first game and the main objective now is to force our way into the semi-finals and then the final," Mascarenhas told the Hindu.

The first English man has come to join IPL on behalf of Rajasthan Royals. The team just has lost one match among the fours. The fifth match of Rajasthan Royals will be held on 1 May against Kolkata Knight Riders.
