IPL 2022: “Who will they play? They are stuck now”- Aakash Chopra on KKR’s possible changes against SRH

Former India player Aakash Chopra believes that Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) do not have many options to replace Pat Cummins in their playing XI team for a crucial encounter with the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

Cummins played a huge role in KKR’s win in their previous game, but was ruled out for the rest of the season due to a hip injury. Aakash Chopra feels they can perhaps enhance their batting by replacing Cummins with Sam Billings and bringing in a pitcher like Shivam Mavi in ​​place of basketball player Sheldon Jackson.


Speaking in a video on his YouTube channel, here’s what Chopra had to say about KKR’s problems with their XI team this season:

“No Pat Cummins now. So who are they going to play? They’re having a hard time. With great difficulty they tried to pick an XI but now they’ll have the question of who will play and who will eliminate. They could bring in Sam Billings in place of Sheldon Jackson and pick Shivam Mavi in ​​bowling. They don’t have many options.”

Umran Malik will pick two or more wickets in the match against KKR: Aakash Chopra

Aakash Chopra expects SRH speed runner Umran Malik to have a great match against KKR. Shreyas Iyer and his men find themselves wanting to counter short-ball and Chopra believes Malik can exploit that weakness with his pace. He stated:

“Umran Malik will choose from two or more players. The team with the most layoffs among pitchers is Kolkata. Even in their last game, they surrendered to a short pitch from Jasearch. Bumrah. Umran’s performance has been pretty average in the last few games, but he’ll do well.”

While this is a life-or-death encounter for KKR, SRH will also be hungry to win, as a loss for them would greatly reduce their chances of making it to the knockout stages.
