KKR vs RR IPL 2023: Why is Jason Holder Not Playing Today’s Match IPL? Check RR Playing XI
Updated on: May 11, 2023 9:59 pm IST
The crucial news development coming from the Rajasthan Royals (RR) camp is that they are not playing all-rounder Jason Holder in their 12th encounter of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) season taking place at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The Rajasthan Royals will definitely be feeling a bit low on confidence as they are coming into this match on the back of a poor 4-wicket loss against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last game of the IPL 2023 season.
KKR vs RR IPL 2023: Why is Jason Holder Not Playing Today’s Match IPL?
During the toss, Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson mentioned that Jason Holder is not included in the RR playing XI for this KKR vs RR match on Thursday. Incidentally, he is also not part of the substitute members list which means that the RR team management have dropped him from the side. The Rajasthan Royals have definitely failed to utilise Holder’s services both in the batting as well as bowling departments having picked up just 4 wickets and scored 12 runs from 8 games in the ongoing 16th edition of the IPL. Therefore, the Rajasthan Royals have decided to strengthen their batting line-up with Joe Root coming into the team for this game against Kolkata Knight Riders.
“We will bowl here first. Long tournament, need to change according to the strength and weaknesses. Couple of changes for us – Boult replaces Kuldip Yadav, KM Asif replaces Murugan Ashwin. Root will bat at 4. It’s a long tournament, we have had some tough games for the bowlers, the morale of the team is high, not easy to forget close losses, but we need to move on,” said Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson during the toss.
