Aakash Chopra Questions Why You’re Playing Him After the All-Rounder Didn’t Bowl a Single Over

<p>Questions regarding Hardik Pandya’s leadership are being raised in light of India’s recent T20I series losses to West Indies, particularly the second game, which they let slip away in spectacular manner.</p>
<p>West Indies had been reduced to 32/3 by India, who were defending 153, until Nicholas Pooran launched a comeback to put his side back in the game. The visitors came storming back when Pooran was out on 67, but West Indies managed to cross the finish line with seven deliveries left.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-116553″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-hacktivists-from-bangladesh-target-india-with-ddos-attacks-and-data-breach-report-download-2023-08-07t172616.606.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com hacktivists from bangladesh target india with ddos attacks and data breach report download 2023 08 07t172616.606″ width=”1000″ height=”560″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-hacktivists-from-bangladesh-target-india-with-ddos-attacks-and-data-breach-report-download-2023-08-07t172616.606.jpg 300w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-hacktivists-from-bangladesh-target-india-with-ddos-attacks-and-data-breach-report-download-2023-08-07t172616.606-150×84.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px” title=”Aakash Chopra Questions Why You're Playing Him After the All-Rounder Didn't Bowl a Single Over 3″></p>
<p>Yuzvendra Chahal’s 16th over, which included two legbreaks after Romario Shepherd was run out, gave India the advantage.</p>
<p>Chahal had one over remaining, but he didn’t bowl it again, confusing former India opener Aakash Chopra.</p>
<p>“When Nicholas Pooran was batting, West Indies was dominating the game. India had an opportunity as soon as he was ejected, but Yuzvendra Chhal saved it, according to Chopra on his YouTube channel.</p>
<p>“India seemed to be capable of winning, but that wasn’t the case. Chahal didn’t show up to bowl once again. The 19th over is more significant than the 20th over when you are defending a total. The 18th over also becomes significant if the scores and wickets are low. Chahal was eligible to bowl the 18th over and should have bowled the 19th over without a doubt.Surprisingly, no one questioned Hardik Pandya about the reasoning behind the choice during the post-game talk,” he said.</p>
<p>Axar Patel didn’t have a chance to bowl a single over throughout the game, which led Chopra to ask whether he is just playing as a batsman.</p>
<p>Axar Patel unexpectedly didn’t bowl at all. Why are you playing him if he won’t be bowling? The sixth bowler has not at all bowled. Axar just bowled two overs in the first game and none at all in the second. Is he batting or playing? Chopra remarked.</p>
<p>Chopra was all praise for Pooran’s game-winning innings and said that the Windies great was one of the few players in the world today who could bat at the same pace.</p>
<p>“Nicholas Pooran loses control early on before building up his innings. He has kept up this form and speed, which demonstrates just how exceptional a player he is. The only Indian player who was batting in such a way and form was Suryakumar Yadav. Others are decent, but there aren’t many players in the world right now that have this sort of devastating ability. One of the greatest is unquestionably Nicholas Pooran, according to Chopra.</p>
