RR vs KKR: “Rajasthan Royals Really Need to Figure Out…” – Varun Aaron’s Take on RR’s Four Straight Defeats

Former Indian fast bowler Varun Aaron advised Rajasthan Royals (RR) after their loss against Punjab Kings (PBKS). Varun Aaron stated that Rajasthan Royals should set their middle order at a crucial stage of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.

Rajasthan Royals suffered their first consecutive defeat in the 2024 Indian Premier League. The Sanju Samson-led team lost by five wickets to the Punjab Kings in Guwahati on Wednesday, May 15. However, they qualified for the playoffs in the current tournament.

The Royals posted a below-par total of 144 runs after the toss win. Riyan Parag top scored for RR, scoring 48 runs off 34 balls with six fours. Ravichandran Ashwin scored 28 runs off 19 balls but the remaining batters failed to make an impact in the last game.

Sam Curran led the chase and guided them to a comfortable win in 18.5 overs. He scored 63 runs off 41 balls, including five boundaries and three sixes. Curran, who took two wickets with the ball, was named Player of the Match for his all-round performances.

Rajasthan Royals should be worried – Varun Aaron

Varun Aaron expressed concern about Rajasthan Royals’ middle order on ESPNCricinfo. Aaron stressed the importance of addressing this issue before the tournament’s playoff games.

“At first I thought it was a slip-up. They’ll pick it up, but now it’s actually getting worrying. You should be worried. They really need to figure out their midrange. In pressure games, the midrange will come to the fore and they need to deliver. That’s why they should be worried, especially about the middle class. said Varun Aaron.

The Royals started the season strong, securing eight wins in their first nine games. However, the Sanju Samson-led team suffered defeats against SunRisers Hyderabad, Delhi Capitals (DC), Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Punjab Kings in the following matches.

RR is in second place in the table with 16 points from 13 games. Although they have secured a spot in the playoffs, their recent losses have jeopardized their chances of finishing in the top two. They will face Kolkata Knight Riders at the same venue on Sunday, May 19.

We have many match winners in the team – Sanju Samson

At the post-match presentation, Sanju Samson expressed his disappointment over the recent defeat against the Punjab Kings. Samson emphasized the need for individual players to step up and produce game-winning performances.

“Yes, this is a team sport, but we have a lot of match winners on our side and we need individuals to develop further. So it’s about having the right characters who play with passion and can single-handedly win the game for us. If we all try this, and even a few [of players] If I manage to move up, it would make a difference. We need these characters who can carry us,” Samson said.
