He has to undergo finger surgery. Two games into the season. RR star player Ben Stokes was also ruled out due to a hand injury. He had to fly back home.
The News came out that Archer would not be playing in the IPL 2021 at all, and RR would have to spend the season without him.
Former India cricketer Aakash Chopra believes that in the absence of key players this season, RR have to change their approach.
“The Rajasthan Royals have more problems because they don’t have the players. If they don’t have the players, what can they do, they can only change the approach,” he said in a video uploaded on his Youtube channel, ahead of RR’s clash with KKR.
“The Rajasthan Royals’ fortunes will not change with personnel changes. Things can change if the batsmen become more consistent else I see this team struggling a lot,” Chopra said.
“David Miller needs to score runs. Riyan Parag is playing all the matches. he youngster will have to grow now. Rahul Tewatia will have to contribute. Shivam Dube should play how he did and make it even bigger.”
