Rajasthan Royals IPL 2020 UAE Schedule
Watch out for this blokes:
Yashaswi Jaiswal, Steve Smith, Ben Stokes, Shreyas Gopal, Sanju Samson, Jofra Archer
While Top order firmly strong with Yashashwi, Butler and Smith they badly miss the finisher although they have Ben stokes but it is risky with only one man throughout the tournament
With Steve Smith and Ben stokes being heavy weights they are likely to be playing every match alongside with Jofra Archer. They have plenty of options left for fourth player they could go with Jos butler who could give them a head start, Tom Curran who will come in handy with some runs or Andrew Tye could fire in some knuckle balls
However the best combination could be something like this, If they go in with Butler, Smith, Stokes and Archer, While Stokes and Archer could give their 8 overs with ball they are expected to bowl at crunch times of game play
Who is the savior?
With a bunch of talent in the house, Royals is looking for a bloke on whom they can rely on, the cravings of young Yashashwi to prove on a bigger stage can help them and that’s their team strategy right throughout the years. At the same time Steve smith can come in handy with his experience while playing in UAE. Steve can be blocker to opponent it all depends on how much he rotates strike when something uncertain happens.
Middle order Woes:
With concerning form of Robin Uthappa and Sanju Samson in recent times Rajasthan is expected to be coming with all guns firing, adding to this missing of David Miller has weakened their middle order we all know how destructive he is if he gets going, Rajasthan should be seeing the equal heavy weight for replacement.
The Sole finisher:
With weakened lower middle order and a lack of backup finisher the team may go in for a havoc if top order fails.Ben Stokes, yes he is the sole finisher Shreyas can also hit a few but sucking the pressure at crunch times? Only time would tell
Spinning the Web:
Rajasthan find an uncut gem in the name of Shreyas Gopal who has tricked the top tire players with his spin attack adding to this Rahul Tewatia is one bloke who can spin round the corner
Bowling heavy weights:
With Jaydev Undakat, Jofra archer and Ben Stokes they seem to be covered up with death bowling. Rajasthan has some good bowling bench strength with Ankit Rajpoot, Oshane Thomas and Andrew Tye. This should clear their bowling woes which was major concern in last year outing.
Our XI: Yashashwi Jaiswal, Jos Butler, Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, Steve Smith, Ben stokes, Shreyas Gopal, Rahul Tewatia, Jaydev Unadkat, Jofra Archer, Ankit Rajpoot
