Rajasthan Royals Captain Steve Smith has said that they are not sure about Stokes playing in their next match on Monday against SunRisers Hyderabad as he is coming out of quarantine tomorrow and has not started practiced yet.
“Stokes hasn’t had a lot of practice, he gets out of quarantine tomorrow, so we’ll see if he plays the day after tomorrow,” Steve Smith said in the post-match presentation.
On the consecutive fourth defeat of the team, RR captain Steve Smith bewailed that his side had not able to execute the plans during the tough situations.
The Bowlers Did a Good Job- Steve Smith
Also, he appreciated his bowlers for restricting Delhi Capitals under 200 in Sharjah but also pointed out that wicket wasn’t placid as it has been in some previous matches on this ground.
“We are not playing good enough over the 40 overs, and not executing when the pressure is coming on and you can’t win many games that way. The bowlers did a good job, and I don’t think the wicket was as good as it has been here, a bit sloppy tonight, and we gave away 10-15 extra runs.
I’m Not Batting Too Well: Steve Smith
Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab are on the same boat now. Things have become quite complicated for both the sides. Steve Smith admitted that things are not going in the way they should and also blamed himself and other batsmen for another failure.
“We have to remain positive, turn things around quickly. At the moment it doesn’t seem to be going our way. I’m not batting too well either. I did feel good tonight with the bat but didn’t get hold of one that I feel like I should have,” he concluded.
Rajasthan Royals will now face SunRisers Hyderabad on Monday (October 11) in Dubai.
