RR Playing XI vs KKR in IPL 2021: Manan Vohra likely to be dropped, Who will open for RR with Jos Buttler?
If there is one thing Sanju Samson and Rajasthan Royals team management would wish for in the current situation is the availability of Ben Stokes. Ever since the English all-rounder was ruled out due to finger injury, RR’s top-order has looked in shambles, especially the opening pair.
In Stokes’ absence, Jos Buttler was paired with Manan Vohra for the opening spot, while David Miller took over the No.4 position. However, the Butler-Vohra partnership has failed to rake fruits for the franchise. In the upcoming clash against Kolkata Knight Riders, Samson could make a change to the opening combination by resting struggling Vohra.
