Sanju’s Rajasthan is not a retail team; English legend evaluates Rajasthan Royals
England legend Graeme Swann has praised the Rajasthan Royals for their continued performance in the IPL. Swann said the team is performing five times better than the previous season.
The player’s reaction was on Cricket Live on Star Sports.
‘Rajasthan Royals are playing very good cricket this season. It is now performing five times better than last time. It’s for them to build a great team in the mega star auction, ‘says Swann.
Former England international Nick Knight has made similar comments. Knight said that Rajasthan is a strong team and can do well in the IPL this season.
‘The base of Rajasthan is strong. I love that they start playing New Ball. It’s charming to start an explosive innings with Jose Butler.
They have spinners like Ashwin and Chahal and a finisher like Hetmeyer. Rajasthan has all the resources to perform well, ”says Knight.
Rajasthan have won three of the four matches they have played in the new season. The team tops the points table with six points.
Rajasthan’s next match is on Thursday. The rivals are the Gujarat Titans led by Hardik Pandya.
Rajasthan will be looking to retain the top spot in the points table with a win over Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat. The Rajasthan batting line-up is strong as Jose Butler continues to be in lethal form and Devdat and Sanju are well equipped to support Butler and score big.
Gujarat, on the other hand, is leapfrogging Gill’s fighting spirit. Captain Hardy is also there to support Gill.
The match is also seen as a struggle of the bowlers. Leading wicket-takers Chahal and spin magician Rashid Khan are expected to fill the field.
