The Wankhede Stadium will host the 34th match of the IPL 2022 between Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals. Former Indian opener and commentator Aakash Chopra spoke about Rajasthan Royals’ weak link before the match. Rajasthan had used a combination of 6 batsmen and 5 bowlers in their last match against Kolkata. This decision piqued Aakash Chopra’s interest, but he cautioned that if the team wants to play with this lineup, three of the team’s players must perform continuously.
Rajasthan Royals have included Devdutt Padikkal, who opened the batting for RCB, in their camp this time. Padikkal, who batted in the middle order in the first two games, is now batting with Jos Buttler at the top of the order. For the past few matches, he has not been in good form.
“Devdutt Padikkal’s bat is not running,” Aakash Chopra said of the left-handed opener. If he does not score runs, the team may face problems because he lacks batting depth. He is not playing Neesham, and Nathan Coulter-Nile is out of the tournament due to injury. Padikkal’s performance will be crucial if he is playing with six batsmen.”
“Samson has just shown a glimpse of his talent after a good innings,” he continued. He’ll be counted on to score. Shimron Hetmyer has had a fantastic season. However, out of the six batsmen, Karun Nair, Riyan Parag, and Padikkal are out. There are three of them. It’s a major stumbling block.”
