Rajasthan Royals lost a close game to Sunrisers Hyderabad and cricket expert Aakash Chopra is not happy with it. The team began the tournament well when they had won their initial 4 games. They stood right at the top of the table but now, Rajasthan Royals are losing out on their spot. They’ve now lost 4 out of the last 5 games the team has played.

Decoding the Rajasthan Royals‘ performance after their last match, Aakash Chopra said that the batters weren’t at fault if the bowlers couldn’t defend even after having 200+ runs on the board. In order to exact revenge for their defeat in the earlier in the tournament match at home, the visitors successfully chased down the target off the final delivery with four wickets remaining. He emphasized the quick scoring by the Rajasthan Royals’ trio of Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, and Yashasvi Jaiswal has been helpful for the team.

Rajasthan Royals will now have to win all their remaining games

Aakash Chopra Says Rajasthan Royals Batters Not Responsible for Loss

“To ask the question whether more runs could have been scored there, I mean you will never know. But if you can’t defend 214 runs, it’s not a problem of batters. It is a problem of bowlers, especially when there was no dew. Buttler batted extremely well. He scored 20 runs off 20 balls at the start but overall he scored 95 runs off 59 balls. So no one should talk about the strike rate because it was 161 even after scoring 20 runs off 20 balls. Yashasvi had a strike rate of 194 and Sanju Samson’s strike rate was 173,” Aakash Chopra.

Rajasthan Royals now have only 3 games left before the end of their season. Therefore, in order for them to qualify for the playoffs, they will now have to win all their remaining matches. Moreover, Rajasthan Royals will also have to keep an eye on how others perform. Because even after winning all their remaining matches, the team will only have 16 points under their belt and net run-rate will come into play. Currently, the only team that is sure to qualify is Gujarat Titans with 16 points. Gujarat still has 3 more games left.
