IPL 2021: Aakash Chopra opines RCB should drop Dan Christian against Delhi Capitals.
Former Indian batsman Aakash Chopra felt that RCB should consider dropping Dan Christian due to his poor form so far and bring in Daniel Sams as the replacement. Daniel Christian is one of the best T20 players in the world. He has struggled to get going with the bat and the ball. He hasn’t taken a wicket so far in the five overs, he has bowled and has scored just one run with the bat in three innings.
In the last game against CSK, he dropped Ravindra Jadeja. He went on to make a merry of the bowling. It has been very tough for him so far, and RCB will be looking for his replacement in the upcoming games.
Finn Allen is an excellent wicket-keeper batsman at the top and there are Indian talents too in the dressing room. Royal Challengers Bangalore will play the in-form Delhi Capitals in a nail-biting encounter tonight at Ahmedabad.
While previewing the RCB-DC encounter in a video shared on his YouTube channel. Aakash Chopra pointed out that the Virat Kohli-led side lacks quality in their lower-middle order batting.
“The RCB batting is not weak but a little short. They are playing Washington at No.3 only to lengthen the batting. Otherwise, Devdutt, Virat, Maxwell, and AB – are no one at No.5. Washington or Dan Christian will have to play at No.5. I don’t think RCB should play Dan Christian at all. They should think about playing Daniel Sams instead of Christian,” said Chopra.
Daniel Sams recently joined the RCB bio-bubble after recovering from COVID-19. The Bangalore-based franchise might look to blood him in their playing XI if he has regained full fitness.
