Famous commentator and former Indian batsman Akash Chopra, while chatting through a video on his Facebook, has selected his favorite playing XI of Rajasthan Royals.
Akash has put England’s explosive wicket-keeper batsman Jose Butler and young Indian batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal in the team as an opener in this team. Young Indian wicketkeeper Sanju Samson is at number three and Rajasthan captain Steve Smith at number four.
Akash has replaced England star all-rounder Ben Stokes at number five. However, there is no clear situation yet for Stokes to play IPL. He is currently in New Zealand with his family.
The sixth-ranked veteran batsman Robin Uthappa is present. Ryan Parag, a young player playing for Assam at number seven, has made it to the spot. Ryan was impressed with his performance last season.
He has replaced the only spinner in the bowling department. Among the fast bowlers, veteran Jaydev Unadkat and Jofra Archer along with Karthik Tyagi / Ankit Rajput have been included in the playing eleven for the ninth place.
This is what Rajasthan Royals’ playing XI selected by Akash Chopra looks like
Jose Butler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson, Steve Smith, Ben Stokes, Robin Uthappa, Ryan Parag, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat, Jofra Archer, Karthik Tyagi / Ankit Rajput.
