Jimmy Neesham is likely to be in the Rajasthan Royals (RR) playing XI for their upcoming game against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), which is to take on 10th April, Sunday, at the Wankhede Stadium. He might be given a chance to strengthen their lower-middle order as it seems to be an area of concern for RR.
