January 16, 2011 19:33 IST

Rajasthan Royals have retained all rounder Abhishek Raut and pacer Aditya Dole in their team for the Indian Premier League's fourth season commencing on April 8.

The IPL franchise, with iconic players Shane Warne and Rahul Dravid in their ranks, have also signed up another Maharashtra player, left arm pacer Samad Falah, the franchise said in a statement on Sunday.

Speaking on the signings, Rajasthan Royals CEO Sean Morris said that Raut and right arm pacer Dhole "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."

"We look forward to all three players showing the fans their talents when they sport the Rajasthan Royals colours in the IPL. All three will no doubt also benefit from the opportunity of developing under the guidance of our captain Shane Warne," he added.
