RR Playing 11: The Rajasthan Royals will play their last league fixture of the Indian Premier League 2021 against Kolkata Knight Riders.
The Rajasthan Royals were beaten by a huge margin to Mumbai Indians, which gives them a slimmest chances of making into the playoffs. The team’s batting department failed, including the openers. The team could post 90 runs on the board, and then the opposition chased down the total in a matter of 9 overs. The key to the batting unit will be Glenn Phillips, who has been consistent with his performances in the T20 format. While, Chetan Sakariya has fine variations up his sleeve and need to maintain the same form.
The Rajasthan Royals have been an average side in the IPL, and do not have enough fire power in the middle order. After the failures of Riyan Parag and Mahipal Lomror, the experienced players like David Miller and Glenn Phillips came in to the side. Bit in the last league match, both the players could not contribute enough and would look to keep the same momentum to win the match. The team’s bowlers have been average, and will be on the look out to improve his performances. The bowlers like Shreyas Gopal and Akash Singh are expected to keep their place after being not too bad with their performances.
