Evin Lewis And Oshane Thomas Replace Jos Buttler And Ben Stokes At Rajasthan Royals
With the second phase of the IPL 2021 tournament about to start on the 19th of September, the franchises are looking to bring in their replacement stars. That is, with some of the key players dropping out of the competition. The pandemic and the T20 World Cup that follows has been responsible for this outcome. However, the show must go on and though the venue has been shifted from India to the UAE, the teams are ready to go.
New reinforcements have been added to the squads already and the teams look better than ever. Some of the teams lost a lot of key players. This included the Rajasthan Royals, who lost key stars like Ben Stokes and Jos Butler. However, both English players have now been replaced.
Can Evin Lewis And Oshane Thomas Fill The Void Left By Jos Buttler And Ben Stokes In The Rajasthan Royals Squad?
It will not be easy to fill the void left by two-star players, Jos Butler and Ben Stokes. Both have been key players for England in the limited-overs format. They can be real assets in the T20 version of the game. That is the real reason why the team from Rajasthan had added them to their squad in the first place.
Keeping that in mind, the two West Indian stars will be coming into the team. Their focus will be to perform well and add more balance to the side. This is something that has been lacking in Sanju Samson’s side right through the competition. Also, consistency will be a major factor for the team in pink.
Rajasthan Royals has lost some close games that they could have won. However, the lack of composure cost them at the very end. Despite that, there is still a chance to qualify for the playoffs. The two players will be expected to help the team achieve that goal. Whether that actually happens now or not, remains to be seen. This is a great chance for Samson and co. to prove their worth and make a name for themselves prior to the T20 World Cup.
