'Why Did Trent Boult Bowl Only Two Overs? I Did Not Understand This', Aakash Chopra Said About RR's Bowling Strategy

Rajasthan got its first defeat of this season in the match against Gujarat.

Gujarat Titans (GT) defeated Rajasthan Royals by 3 wickets in a thrilling match played at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur last night. This is Rajasthan’s first defeat this season. Gujarat successfully chased the target of 197 runs in this match and won despite being in a difficult situation.

After the end of this match, cricketer turned commentator Aakash Chopra was very upset seeing the bowling strategy of RR, especially their main fast bowler Trent Boult. Talking about this match on his YouTube channel, Chopra said that Trent Boult bowled brilliantly in the first two overs but still, he was not made to bowl the full four overs, why?

Why Was Trent Boult Made To Bowl Only Two Overs?- Aakash Chopra

Chopra said, “Why did Trent Boult bowl only 2 overs? I do not understand and two overs, eight runs, and he bowled only two overs. Why? Keshav gave away 16 runs in his two overs, so only 24 runs were scored in those four overs. Trent Boult could have been given overs in the middle but you did not do that.

Keshav Maharaj, who debuted for the Royals, was given only two overs, in which he gave 16 runs. Chopra felt that Boult, who bowled two overs and conceded eight runs, should have been given a longer spell so that he could take advantage of the situation.

The former opening batsman said, “If you are bowling dry ball if you have scored enough runs, you should have the bowling to defend it. The truth is that Rajasthan has bowling. They did not play Nandre Burger but despite this, they have bowling. In bowling, Keshav Maharaj made his debut and he made him bowl only two overs.”

Praising Kuldeep Sen, Chopra said that both the young fast bowler and Avesh Khan were not that impressive in the final overs. The former cricketer further said, “I will praise Kuldeep Sen because he took three wickets in the beginning. However, in the end, he succumbed to the pressure. Avesh Khan was also bowling a good over but then he gave a four.”
