T20 format is all about power show from the batsmen. In the fast mode of cricket, there is not a lot of room for the batsmen who take time to settle in. Sanjay Manjrekar, the veteran Indian cricket analyst, also highlighted this point.
He feels Rajasthan Royals takes themselves back in the race of T20 cricket by playing Ajinkya Rahane and Steve Smith in the XI.
He wants Rajasthan to make ruthless calls in the team selection and play someone who can strike the ball at will. No doubt Rahane and Smith are one the best batsmen in the cricketing world but they do lack the power-hitting ability.
Rajasthan Royals has just one 1 of the 6 games they played so far and in order to stay alive in the tournament, they need to make tough calls.
