The Rajasthan Royals were defeated once again in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Rajasthan were defeated by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 45 runs. Cricket analyst Akash Chopra has recommended RR to make changes to the squad and game plan in the next match.

According to Akash, Rajasthan could play Liam Livingstone in place of Manan Vohra to pair with Jos Buttler in the opening. In order to do that he suggested Mustafizur Rahman be benched to play another overseas cricketer as only 4 foreigners are allowed to play in the XI.

As a result, Mustafiz could miss the next game. He also said that if Buttler and Samson do not make runs, the team performance would not improve.

“Rajasthan is hopeless without Buttler-Samson. Without these two, they can’t improve. It seems like there will be changes in the XI in the next match. Mustafiz can be replaced by Liam Livingstone. Manan can be benched to play a fast-bowler. And they have to change their game plan,”Akash added.

Meanwhile, Mustafiz has performed well in the IPL so far. He took 3 wickets in 3 matches. However, he was wicket less with 45 runs in the first match. Although in the second match against Delhi Capitals he bagged two wickets and one wicket against CSK.
