This season, Rajasthan Royals have relied significantly on Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin’s spin attack. While Chahal has taken the most wickets this season going into their Qualifier 2 match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Friday, Ashwin has been miserly with the ball on many occasions. Former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar, on the other hand, feels that the veteran has a “problem” on wickets with little spin, in which he attempts to deliver too many variations and ends up being unsuccessful.

“Ravichandran Ashwin has difficulty with flat tracks because he tries so many different things. In such circumstances, he bowls fewer off-spinners. I don’t believe the pitch has much of an impact on the performances of Wanindu Hasaranga and Chahal, the two leg-spinners. When the pitch turns, though, Rajasthan’s two-pronged spin attack of Ashwin and Chahal becomes even more dangerous, as Ashwin becomes a dangerous bowler “On ESPNcricinfo, Manjrekar stated. Death bowling, according to Manjrekar, is a vulnerability for the Sanju Samson-led squad.

“Rajasthan’s is death bowling, which is a weakness of any squad. Trent Boult is a world-class bowler, but he’ll have to bowl with the new ball since his record in the death overs isn’t terrific. They have supported Prasidh Krishna, who has performed well this season, but his last match was a disaster. Obed McCoy has proven to be a pleasant surprise, and they will put their faith in him to deliver “Manjrekar said.

The winner of the match between Rajasthan Royals and RCB at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Friday will play Gujarat Titans in the final on Sunday.
