Former Indian cricketer and commentator Aakash Chopra, who is known for voicing his expert opinions on various matters of cricket. As the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League is just around the corner the commentator has been discussing about various franchises and their players.
Recently, in a video shared by Aakash Chopra on his Facebook page, Aakash Chopra picked his four overseas players for RCB. Aakash Chopra was asked whether RCB should go for Finch or with both Moeen Ali and Chris Morris seeing bowling records of the team in the past.
Answering to which, he went on to say that he reckons that RCB can play with Aaron Finch as their opener, AB de Villiers as a batsman, and Moeen Ali and Chris Morris as all-rounders. He had said:
“I feel you can play all three. You can play Finch as an opener, AB de Villiers as a batsman, Moeen Ali and Chris Morris. These will be my four overseas players in the RCB team I would like to make.”
Aakash Chopra also talked about the probable batting order of RCB. He said that Aaron Finch should be the first choice for the position of an opener in the team along with either Parthiv Patel or Devdutt Padikkal. He said:
“If you are an RCB fan, I would say that you play Aaron Finch in all the matches and open with him. There you can go for either Parthiv or Devdutt Padikkal as the opener along with Finch, that is something you may have to decide.”
Aakash Chopra feels that the batting line-up of Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore is sorted and looks good in shape. He said:
“Virat Kohli at 3, AB de Villiers at 4, and Moeen Ali at 5. It sounds very good. At No.6, you will have Shivam Dube, and then you have Chris Morris. So their batting is also looking good. I am feeling that this team is good this year and that they would be doing well,”
Meanwhile, players of Royal Challengers Bangalore have already started preparing themselves for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League, which will kickstart from September 19th in UAE.
