IPL 2021: Aakash Chopra names his predicted playing XI’s for SRH vs RR match
Former India cricketer Aakash Chopra has picked his predicted playing XI’s for today’s IPL match between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Rajasthan Royals (RR). Chopra brought in wicketkeeper Shreevats Goswami in place of Wriddhiman Saha and slotted him alongside David Warner as an opener. The cricketer-turned expert also said that it’s time for SRH to try out players like Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma as they are already out of the playoffs race.

“I will play Warner. I want to give him every opportunity available. With Warner, I will play Shreevats Goswami as he can be the future after Wriddhiman Saha for at least three years. I will play Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma in place of Kedar Jadhav and Manish Pandey. Bowling is not a problem, the problem is in the batting.”
Talking about RR’s playing XI, Chopra said RR should bring back Chris Morris and Evin Lewis in the team. Both players didn’t play against Delhi Capitals. While Lewis had a slight niggle, Morris was dropped after his poor show against Punjab. Chopra also selected Shivam Dubey in the side and dropped Tabraiz Shamsi.
“If Evin Lewis is available, I would play him and replace Tabraiz Shamsi with either Chris Morris or Oshane Thomas. You cannot play Shamsi. You need to back your batting. You also need to think about Shivam Dube. Why not play someone who can give you a few overs as well with the ball,” Chopra concluded.
Aakash Chopra’s SRH XI: David Warner, Shreevats Goswami, Kane Williamson (c), Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed.
Aakash Chopra’s RR XI: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Evin Lewis, Sanju Samson (c/wk), Liam Livingstone, Mahipal Lomror, Shivam Dube, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Mustafizur Rahman, Chetan Sakariya, Kartik Tyagi.
