PBKS vs RR Match: Why is Joe Root Not Playing Today’s IPL Match?

Rajasthan Royals have made a change to their eleven by excluding Joe Root. The former England skipper has been replaced by Blackcaps seamer Trent Boult in the eleven. RR felt the need of having an extra seamer for this surface and hence they went for Boult over Root. 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.”
