Rajputana's inaugural appearance in first-class cricket came in November 1933 against the touring Marylebone Cricket Club at Mayo College Ground in Ajmer, which resulted in a heavy innings defeat. The team entered the Ranji Trophy for the first time in the 1935/36 season, playing its first match in the competition against Central India, losing by a heavy margin. The team played in the following seasons Ranji Trophy, again losing to Central India, but this time by the reduced margin of just two wickets.
