During the inaugural edition of the IPL, Rajasthan Royals then skipper Shane Warne was given a small stake in the franchise, a deal that can potentially fetch him a good amount.

“Part of my deal (was) because I had retired from international cricket and I came out (of retirement),” Warne was quoted as saying by the Australian paper ‘Herald Sun’.

RR won the first IPl edition under Warne’s captaincy.
