Cricketer-turned-commentator Aakash Chopra opined that Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) vs Punjab Kings (PBKS) could be the last game for Kedar Jadhav who is having a rough patch for a long time now.
Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 has been a horrible season for Jadhav as he has managed to score only 43 runs in five games which is unacceptable from a highly experienced middle-order batsman.
Speaking on his YouTube channel Aakash Chorpa said that SRH vs PBKS might be the last game for Kedar, However, SRH doesn’t have any good replacements for him either.
“This could be the last game of the tournament for Kedar Jadhav. If you want to play someone in place of him it could only be Abhishek Sharma or Priyam Garg. But a lot of changes are not possible,” Aakash Chopra asserted
No Need To Play Adil Rashid Or Fabian Allen – Aakash Chopra
The former Indian cricketer wants Punjab Kings to make some changes to their overseas department heading into the game against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Chopra reckons there is no need to include Adil Rashid and Fabian Allen instead they should go with Chris Gayle who is regarded as one of the greatest T20 batsmen of all time and emerging Australia pacer Nathan Ellis.
“There is no need to play Adil Rashid or Fabian Allen. Aiden Markram and Pooran were good choices. But you can play Gayle and Ellis in place of the overseas spinners. You can also play Indian spinners like Ravi Bishnoi or Murugan Ashwin to make it a formidable XI,” Aakash Chopra concluded.
Notably, both the teams will be entering the game with a loss in the previous match, As Punjab Kings lost the match from winning position against Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad faced a humiliating loss against Delhi Capitals.
