3 players you can exclude from your IPL 2020 Dream11 team for Rajasthan Royals (RR) vs Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)


Jaydev Unadkat (8.5 credits)
Jaydev Unadkat ‘s stocks grew humongously after a great season in 2017 and he went  for a price of INR11.5 crores and then INR8.4 crores, both times to Rajasthan Royals team. He is currently with them for INR3 crore. Keeping aside his price, Jaydev Unadkat has been very disappointing in the last two years in general. In 2019 and 2018, he had an economy of 10.66 and 9.65. He went for 44 in 4 overs in the first match of the season as well. As a bowler, he seemed to have lost his touch and his slower balls became very predictable. He might become fodder for the explosive batsmen of  Kings XI Punjab with the short boundaries of Sharjah.

Sheldon Cottrell (8.5 credits)
A surprising addition to this list might be Sheldon Cottrell. He did well in both of the matches he played, picking up two wickets each. This will be an entirely new match, however, and he might not be able to adapt to the new ground. He doesn’t have an excessive pace and if he ends up bowling in the death overs, Sheldon Cottrell might go for runs with a batsmen set at the crease. It’s a hunch, but Sheldon Cottrell may be one of the players who may not be right for this match having performed well earlier.

Jimmy Neesham (8.5 credits)
The inclusion of Jimmy Neesham in the last game was a bit of a surprise. It seemed as though he came into the squad not because he added the extra value to the side, but because they just want to leave Jordan out. Jimmy Neesham bats at 6-7 and he might not even get an opportunity to bat with Sharjah being a batting paradise. In addition to that, against top batsmen, his medium pace will not be effective. He’s a player you can surely leave out of your Dream11 team.
