Yashasvi Jasal to replace Mannan Vohra in RR vs KKR IPL match today?

The Mumbai batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal is said to replace Manan Vohra in the Playing XI for the match against KKR. Vohra, who has featured in 4 matches for RR this year has scored only 42 runs. Although Vohra has been playing in IPL since 2013, he has not been consistent in his performance. For RR to win the match, they need an efficient partnership at the top-order to give freedom to the middle-order batsmen. In the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy, Yashasvi Jaiswal scored 103 runs in 5 innings and can stabilize the team better at the top-order, and can give the team a left-right hand combination which makes it difficult for the bowlers to execute their plan.

Predicting Playing XI of Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan has faced a huge upset after Stokes got injured, then Livingstone flew back from the bubble and now Jofra won’t be coming to play the IPL, it has all been down-going for the royals.

Jos Buttler, David Miller, Chris Morris will play this game for sure. The three have a crucial contribution to their team’s scoreboard. Buttler is very important at the top, as he has to anchor the innings, which Vohra hasn’t been capable of doing. Mustafizur might miss this game and AJ Tye would get a game, who is a good bowler and a handy batsman as well. While the remaining side is expected to be the same.

RR Playing XI (Predicted)

1. Yashasvi Jaiswal
2. Jos Buttler
3. Sanju Samson
4. Shivam Dube
5. David Miller
6. Riyan Parag
7. Rahul Tewatia
8. Chris Morris
9. Shreyas Gopal
10. Chetan Sakariya
11. Andrew Tye
