Summary

However, the IPL Governing Council had put the decision on hold in the wake of the Rajasthan Cricket Association filing a plea in the Rajasthan High Court against playing the Royals' home matches outside the original home base in Jaipur.Reacting to the IPL's decision, the franchise said in a media release that it felt "motivated" about them allowing the "team's aspiration to play and expand footprints of cricket" in a region where the sport is not predominant unlike in the rest of India.The franchise said that every team is allowed the option to play a maximum of three home matches outside the home base and hence it "reviewed" several venues, including Trivandrum, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Guwahati.Guwahati emerged as the popular choice primarily after the franchise witnessed a spike in support in the north-east on the back of "impactful" performance from Riyan Parag, who plays for Assam in domestic cricket."Jaipur is our home, and will continue to be so with the support of the Rajasthan Cricket Association," Manoj Badale, the lead owner of the Royals, said.
