The superstar will return
Shimron Hetmeyer, who returned home after the birth of his first child, has not been in the Rajasthan squad for the last two matches. But after the last match, he returned to the team’s bio-bubble. Hetmeyer will be in Rajasthan’s squad for the match against Chennai Super Kings. This will strengthen the team’s middle order batting. Hetmeyer, who has played 11 matches so far this season, has scored 291 runs at an average of 72.75.
With the return of Shimron Hetmeyer, it is certain that one of the foreign players who played in the last match will be dropped from the team today. Jose Butler, Trent Bolt, James Neesham and Obed McCoy were the four foreign players of the Rajasthan Royals in the last match. There is no doubt that Jose Butler and Trent Bolt will remain on the team. Obed McCoy, who took two wickets against Lucknow, is also likely to be in the squad.
According to current indications, star all – rounder James Neesham will be out today. Despite not making a significant contribution to batting in the last game, Neesham had a sparkling performance on the field.
His recent performances show that Jose Butler, who started the season brilliantly, is slowly losing his rhythm in batting. But as the IPL draws to a close, it is imperative for the Royals to get the player back to his best form. Jose Butler and Yashwasi Jaiswal will still be Rajasthan’s openers. If they get off to a good start, Rajasthan will also take on Chennai. At number three, meanwhile, the team is less likely to experiment today. Captain Sanju Samson himself is expected to play in this position.
Devdutt Padikkal has been batting brilliantly in the last two matches. Padikkal, who has already proved his mettle in the middle order, will continue to play for Rajasthan at number four. Shimron Hetmeyer is expected to play fifth. The return of Hetmeyer, who has not been in the last two games, will further strengthen the Rajasthan midfield. At the same time, Ryan Parag will reach the number six spot.
Spinners to spin
Their spinners Yusvendra Chahal and R Ashwin have been instrumental in Rajasthan’s brilliant jump this season. They are also the best spin pair of the season. Today, Rajasthan will be looking forward to their performances against Chennai. If they try to shake Chennai, they will destroy Rajasthan even today.
Must excel in powerplay
Left-arm pacer Trent Bolt still leads Rajasthan’s pace line-up. Prasidh Krishna and Obad Mako are also expected to join the team. In all the matches in which Bolt excelled in powerplay, Rajasthan got the best result. Even today, things will be easier for him in Rajasthan.
