IPL 2022: Yuzvendra Chahal Gave A Hilarious Reply To Aakash Chopra

Aakash Chopra wants that 100+ metre six should be counted as 8 runs.

Yuzvendra Chahal and Aakash Chopra were involved in a funny conversation when the latter suggested a new rule to be adopted in cricket. The discussion happened during the Punjab KingsChennai Super Kings encounter, on Sunday evening.

So, first, Aakash Chopra came up with an interesting new rule in the game after Liam Livingstone smashed a gigantic 108-metre six: the 44-year-old commentator suggested that sixes over 100 metres should be counted as 8 runs!

Netizens took a good laugh at it and some even welcomed this proposal from Aakash Chopra. However, senior India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal came up with a hilarious proposal of his own to counter Chopra’s idea.

Yuzvendra Chahal, who is now part of the Rajasthan Royals team, gave an epic reply to Chopra: Chahal reckoned if batters will be given extra runs on hitting sixes over 100 metres, then bowlers should be given an extra wicket if they manage to bowl 3 consecutive dot balls!

Fans liked this reply as well from Chahal. Then Aakash Chopra countered with another proposition, saying that a bowler should be allowed to bowl one extra over if he takes 3 wickets in a single spell!

Aakash Chopra further rationalised his original idea – of a batter getting 8 runs for a six sent over 100 metres – by saying that a batsman stands a chance to misbalance himself in trying to hit a big maximum – so there’s risk-reward in his idea which could also help the bowler in some way.

Meanwhile, Liam Livingstone was on a roll against CSK as he played a thunderous knock of 60 runs off 32 balls, including 5 fours and 5 sweetly-struck sixes. One six among those five is now the longest six of the IPL 2022 so far: a gigantic 108-metre hit! Without any surprise, it is Livingstone again who has smashed the second-longest six of the tournament this year of 105 metres.

Following these two giant hits from Livingstone is his compatriot Jos Buttler with a couple of mammoth maximums that were recorded to be 101 and 98 metres during his century against Mumbai Indians on Saturday
