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.

RR vs KKR, IPL 2021 – RR Playing XI: Who can replace Manan Vohra as Rajasthan’s new opener?

Since last year, Royals have experimented with several opening combinations at the top. Vohra was entrusted with the responsibility this season. However, he failed to deliver. HE is the worst performer in Rajasthan’s batting line-up in four games. The 27-year-old has scored just 42 runs at a strike rate and an average of 107.69 and 10.51 respectively. While Buttler has a permanent place in the playing XI it is Vohra who will find himself sharp end of the axe.
