Former India cricketer turned renowned commentator Aakash Chopra believes that the Rajasthan Royals (RR) might not reach the IPL 2021 playoffs. But, he also admitted that they could pose trouble for other franchises including Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on their way to qualify for the playoffs.
However, the Rajasthan Royals are now at fifth in the IPL points table, with six points whereas RCB, on the other hand, stayed at third place, with ten points as well. In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra urged the other franchises that they can beat the other teams and make their qualification for playoff difficult as well.
He expressed: “I think the Rajasthan Royals will remain in the bottom half, they might not qualify. If they don’t qualify, they will be the party poopers, they will spoil some people’s party. RCB beware because if there are chances of some team’s party getting spoiled, one Royal can do to the other.”
“The problem for the Rajasthan Royals is that there have been too many changes. Your main players have all gone – you don’t have Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and Jos Buttler, who had scored a century. You have signed new players like Evin Lewis and Oshane Thomas, and Liam Livingstone is available. You have made the signings, you have got players but it’s not the same team, the team looks slightly different. It will be extremely necessary for Sanju Samson to bat well,” he again shared.
There is no replacement for Jofra Archer-Aakash Chopra
However, he also shared that the Rajasthan Royals can do well if they play together as a unit as well. On the other hand, they won’t get the service of their key players and youngsters like Yashasvi Jaiswal, Riyan Parag, Kartik Tyagi and Chetan Sakariya will get the chance to showcase their skills as well.
“It will not be easy, you have changed your team totally after the halfway stage. There is no replacement for Jofra Archer in the entire world, how will you get it. There are a lot of problems but this team has shown that if you combine the five fingers, it becomes a fist,” Aakash Chopra concluded.
