The troubles of Rajsthan Royals are not ending

IPL 2021 The second half of (IPL 2021) is starting in UAE from 19 September. But, the problem of Rajasthan Royals, which faced poor performance in the first phase, is not taking its name to end. First, Jos Butler gave a big blow to the franchise by withdrawing his name. After this, now when his replacement is associated with the team, another big challenge has arisen in front of the franchise.

After Butler, Rajasthan got another setback!

In fact, instead of Butler, the team included West Indies batsman Evin Lewis in their team. But, in the second half, he is injured even before he can take the field for Rajsthan Royals. He has suffered an injury in the final of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL Final). A video related to this is also going viral on social media. Lewis was playing for the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots team in the league.

Lewis injured his left shoulder while trying to save a four while fielding in the final against St. Lucia. The incident happened in the 5th over of St Lucia’s innings. Dominic Drakes was bowling in this over. So there was Rahkeem Cornwall on strike. Cornwall cut a ball from Drakes and Lewis, standing at backward point, tried to stop the ball by diving to his left. During this he got injured.

After Lewis was injured, the physio immediately treated him on the field. However, later he went out of the field for some time. After this he also came out to bat. But, after scoring 6 runs, they were settled cheaply. In such a situation, if Lewis’s injury is serious, then it can prove to be a big challenge for the Rajasthan Royals. Because the team is already very disappointed due to the exclusion of many veteran players.

Star players like Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer will not be seen playing for Rajasthan Royals in the second phase of IPL 2021. Therefore, in the circumstances, Lewis can prove to be a very important player for the team. One of the reasons behind this is that he is in tremendous form at the moment. His name is second in the list of batsmen who have scored the most runs in CPL. He has scored 426 runs in 11 matches, batting at a tremendous average of 47.33.
