Hetmyer still in QUARANTINE, who will Samson pick?

As it is mandatory for all to be in a three-day quarantine after rejoining bio-bubble, Hetmyer will only exit quarantine after the match. That effectively rules himself out of the clash against Lucknow Super Giants.

Shimron Hetmyer played crucial knocks for Rajasthan Royals in chases and in the death overs while batting first. But the Rassie van der Dussen failed to impress in his absence, managing just 12 off 10 balls. Prior to that, Daryl Mitchell also had poor outings.

RR Playing XI vs LSG: Mitchell or Rassie – who will replace Hetmyer?

  • Shimron Hetmyer has been crucial for RR with 291 runs in 11 innings at an average of 72.75 and a strike rate of 166.29.
  • As he is still in quarantine and is unlikely to be available, Daryl Mitchell and Rassie van der Dussen are the only two choices.
  • But both are difficult choices as they have had limited opportunities and poor outings so far.
  • Daryl Mitchell has managed just 33 runs in two games with a strike rate of 75.00.
  • Rassie van der Dussen has scored 22 in three games at a strike rate of 91.67.
  • However, if Hetmyer doesn’t exit the quarantine before the match, Rassie is expected to continue because of his middle-order role.
  • Daryl Mitchell is a top-order batsman and not a finisher.
  • As it’s a must-win match for Rajasthan Royals, RR are unlikely to tinker much with the combination.

RR Playing XI vs LSG:

1. Yashasvi Jaiswal
2. Jos Buttler
3. Devdutt Padikkal
4. Sanju Samson (c & wk)
5. Rassie van der Dussen/ Daryl Mitchell
6. Riyan Parag
7. Ravichandran Ashwin
8. Trent Boult
9. Prasidh Krishna
10. Yuzvendra Chahal
11. Kuldeep Sen/ James Neesham

As for other positions, James Neesham could be given a chance in place of Kuldeep Sen, who had a lacklustre outing against Delhi Capitals. Kuldeep conceded 32 runs in 3.1 overs with an economy rate of 10.10 without any returns.

James Neesham is likely to replace Kuldeep Sen for LSG clash

Neesham has played just one game and returned empty-handed. But his all-round ability will still keep RR in good stead against a quality bowling attack of Lucknow Super Giants.

However, the key will be Jos Buttler, the Orange Cap holder. Yashasvi Jaiswal failed to fire in the last match but he will keep his place and will continue to open with Buttler. While RR were successful in their experimentation with Ravichandran Ashwin at No 3 as he scored a half0century, Devdutt Padikkal is likely to get the place. Sanju Samson has adopted a middle-order role and is likely to continue at that position.

Rajasthan Royals Squad: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Rassie van der Dussen, Riyan Parag, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Sen, Karun Nair, James Neesham, Navdeep Saini, KC Cariappa, Daryl Mitchell, Obed McCoy, Tejas Baroka, Kuldip Yadav, Anunay Singh, Dhruv Jurel, Shubham Garhwal, Corbin Bosch
