Five Quiessential Players
- Nitish Rana, Shubman Gill, Eoin Morgan, Pat Cummins, Lockie Ferguson.
- Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson, Steve Smith, Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer
Jos Buttler has been handed over a new job by Rajasthan. He’s now been shifted lower down the order, a position where he’s handed over freedom to open his arms right from ball one.
After a lacklustre month in the league, Sanju Samson has finally managed to rediscover his waning form. He’s back looking the player who was being spoken about so highly previously to see him join up with Jos.
Steven Smith has massively benefited ever since being asked to bat lower down the batting order. He pulled off 31 runs for his side against Punjab, a knock where he showed composure to score runs at a quick rate to take his side past the fishing line.
A rejuggled batting slot for Robin Uthappa has seen him scrounge his way crucial runs inside the powerplay period to see him form the duo from Rajasthan. The opposition meanwhile see us opt for Shubman Gill with him coming up with a 26 run contribution in his previous encounter.
Nitish Rana went on a rampage the last time he took to the middle. The batsman exploded for a gargantuan 87 run knock, an innings he’ll be looking to emulate as his team grovels for survival.
Completing the three man docket from the club is captain Eoin Morgan.
Ben Stokes is now looking every bit the player Rajasthan decided to break the bank for. He was the fulcrum of his side’s win the last time around as he walked away with the man of the match award for his 50 run and 2 wicket contribution.
For Jofra Archer, this might be the last chance for him to make one final push for the purple cap. He’s consistently been amongst the wickets this season, returning with a two wicket haul the last time around as well to see him be an instant pick for us.
While Pat Cummins can’t redeem himself no matter what he does now, he has managed to show sparks of the bowler who became the most expensive speedster in the league. His two strikes in the bygone encounter see us opt for him along with counterpart Lockie Ferguson.
Captain And Vice-Captain
RR Bat First: With Stokes doing it all at the moment, he’ll captain our side while Archer is the vice-captain.
KKR Bat First: A lack of better and more reliable options see us opt for the same picks as aforementioned.
