PBKS vs RR Match: Why is Ravichandran Ashwin Not Playing Today’s IPL Match?
During the toss, RR’s skipper Sanju Samson revealed that Ravichandran Ashwin is not a part of the playing 11. He is suffering from a back spasm and has been replaced by Navdeep Saini. Ashwin’s last 3-4 outings weren’t fruitful and RR may not miss him much with Adam Zampa still in the eleven. Here’s what Sanju Samson said at the toss,
“We will bowl. Looking at the dimensions and looking as to what we require in the tournament, it is better to bowl. We need to win the game. Then see how the other games go. If you want to play good T20 cricket, you need to forget things. We have had four to five days off. One has to understand the conditions. We have couple of changes. Last minute changes. Ashwin misses out because of a back spasm.”
