The stage is all set for the match number 32 of the Indian Premier League 2018. The Delhi Daredevils will take on the Rajasthan Royals in a must win game for the former. The double Ds need to win all their remaining games to stay alive in the competition. Ahead of the marquee clash, former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra has come up with some serious advice for the Shreyas Iyer-led side.

Aakash Chopra is one of the most revered analysts of the game in the country at the moment. He is known for his predictions and the game insights that he posts on the social media platform. He took to Twitter to do a short preview of this particular Daredevils vs Royals clash as well. In the video, Aakash Chopra stressed on the fact that the Delhi camp have nothing more to lose.

Hence, this is the ideal time they give their bench strength a go. And among the lot, Aakash batted for young leggie from Nepal, Sandeep Lamichhane. He wants Lamichhane to play in the match against the Royals. The 17 year old leggie became the first Nepalese cricketer to bag an IPL contract this year.

He was spotted as a 14-year old wizard by the former Nepal coach Pubudu Dassanayake in the Chitwan province. Things turned on the heads for Sandeep when he got the opportunity to play for Kowloon Cantons at the inaugural Hong Kong T20 Blitz in May 2016.

At the tournament, he impressed Michael Clarke and was subsequently invited by Clarke to groom his game in Sydney. Clarke kept a watchful eye on Lamichhane and there has been no looking back for the youngster since then. He is now a regular member of the Nepal national side.

Here is what Aakash Chopra tweeted:

“#DDvRR: #DD are languishing at the foot of the table. Maybe it’s time for them to give their Nepali leggie Sandeep Lamichhane a go as they take on Rajasthan Royals. #IPL2018 #AakashVani #Preview,” Aakash Chopra captioned his preview video of the match.
