- Jofra Archer: The skipper Ajinkya has not been using Jofra that well in this season yet. If he gets the opportunity of bowling directly in the death overs and not wasting him early of the innings it would create an impact on the game. He can slower the run rate and restrick the oppositions to a low target.
