After a disastrous 13th edition by Rajasthan Royals, they will definitely like to march towards best season and for this they need a team who can do the best for them. As in the last season, we had seen the bowling department was the worst among every franchise what Rajasthan carried. It was only running with the help of Jofra Archer who was acting as a lone warrior for the team in the bowling department.
Due to lack of intent in bowling, Aakash Chopra feels that Rajasthan Royals might bid to buy Australian speedster Mitchell Starc to support the bowling department with Jofra Archer. As team has released 8 players which consists of Oshane Thomas, Tom Curran, Varun Aaron, Ankit Rajpoot and even their skipper Steven Smith. With this heavy release, management would try to buy core players for the franchise.
Aakash Chopra also feels that team doesn’t have best bowling department as it runs with Archer only who was even awarded as the Man of the Tournament of IPL-2020 by taking 20 wickets with an economical spell of 6.55.
“The biggest problem is that it has been one-man bowling army. Jofra Archer on one side and the rest of the team on the other. This has been the impact of Jofra and also the lack of effectiveness of the remaining bowlers. They will have to address this, they have the money and will have to buy a big overseas fast bowler” said on YouTube channel by Chopra.
15-18Cr of amount can be bid on Mitchell Starc by Jaipur based Franchise: Aakash Chopra.
Aakash Chopra feels that if team spends more money on buying Mitchell Starc, then it won’t affect them much as he is a lethal bowler and can make a great impact for team. He also feels that players like Kyle Jamieson, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Umesh Yadav can also used.
“They could also think of Kyle Jamieson because they like players who do two tasks. Nathan Coulter-Nile could be another option whom they could think about. Jhye Richardson will also available. They could look towards him also. They have left all Indian bowlers. So Umesh Yadav as they will need one Indian fast bowler” added by Chopra.
