McDonald comes in to replace Paddy Upton, who was only appointed before the start of the previous season.

McDonald, who has significant experience of coaching will have to take Rajasthan to the epitome of success as they aim their second IPL title. Notably, Rajasthan Royals won the inaugural edition of the competition in 2008 under the leadership of Shane Warne.

The Rajasthan Royals is a new, exciting challenge for me, and I can’t wait to get started working with our world-class players and coaches in one of the biggest sporting leagues in the world,” he added.
