Gujarat Titans beat Rajasthan Royals in Indian Premier League Chasing Gujarat’s 192, Australia chased down Rajasthan’s 155 for nine in the allotted 20 overs. The other players could not capitalize on the start given by Jose Butler with a half century.
At the same time, the decision to drop Ashwin to third in the Rajasthan batting line-up came as a surprise. Rashid Khan hit six and returned with 8 runs. Australian all-rounder Ben Cutting has come under fire for his criticism of Rajasthan’s experiment. The all-rounder said that he did not understand the logic of releasing the number three and did not understand Rajasthan’s decision when there were good players.
Sanju Samson has to come in at number three as Jaiswal is not available. It was not the right time to land Ashwin as he did not get off to a good start. It was an unnecessary move. This is stupid, “said Cutting.
Butler also praised Ferguson for taking the wicket. Ferguson bowled Butler after the Kiwis hit a six. Butler had a special innings. But the ball that knocked him out was also special. “It’s Loki’s job to get Butler out of good form through a slow yorker,” Cutting said.
