Former India opener Aakash Chopra feels that Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have been tinkering with their squad too much which has rendered them inefficient when it comes to choosing an ideal playing XI.
The team made two changes to their playing XI for the clash against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and are expected to make a few again after losing their first two games in the second leg.
Aakash Chopra suggested that RCB replace Tim David and Navdeep Saini with Dushmanta Chameera and Shahbaz Ahmad. The Sri Lankan player, who came in as a replacement player, is yet to make his debut, while Shahbaz Ahmad has been a handy option for the side in the first leg in sub-continent conditions in India.
While speaking on his YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra said:
"RCB should bring in Jamieson back for Wanindu Hasaranga. All said and done, this team is still about individual brilliance. Dushmanta Chameera can also be considered instead of Tim David and Navdeep Saini can make way for Shahbaz Ahmad.
"There is so much to think about because right from the first match they have been making too many changes, change has become their second name."
RCB are struggling to get going in the second leg following tame defeats to KKR and CSK. All three departments have posed a cause for concern for the team.
MI can play Chris Lynn at No.3 if needed: Aakash Chopra
Aakash Chopra also pondered over possible combinations or alterations that MI could use in their playing XI to get back to winning ways.
Given MI's vulnerability in the middle order that has arisen due to Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan's poor form, Aakash Chopra believes that MI can sacrifice an overseas player to bring in Chris Lynn. He added:
"Another solution, if Hardik Pandya is not available, is to bring in Chris Lynn. Lynn at No.3, Suryakumar at No.4 and use Kishan as a finisher if required. So, Adam Milne and Saurabh Tiwary out for Chris Lynn and Dhawal Kulkarni."
