The biggest festival of cricket – Indian Premier League is all set to rock the floor on September 19 in the UAE. The training has been going on in full swing and BCCI will reveal the full schedule of the tournament later today. Ahead of the tournament, former India cricketer Aakash Chopra has picked 6 Indian batsmen who can dominate in IPL 2020.
Chopra has earned himself a reputation with his sharp analysis of the game. He is currently one of the best commentators around and also runs a YouTube channel where he shares his analysis. Recently, in one of the videos, Aakash Chopra picked 6 Indian batsmen who can dominate in IPL 2020.
At No.6, Chopra picked Delhi Capitals’ wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant. He said the Delhi should promote Rishabh in the batting order. In the fifth and fourth position, Aakash went with Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma and Delhi captain Shreyas Iyer respectively.

“At No.5, I am going with Rohit Sharma. He will surely score runs, but I am not 100% certain if he will be at the top of the highest run-scorers list. At No.4, I am going with Shreyas Iyer. I feel his season will be good. What goes is in favour is that he is fit, young and has a lot of hunger for runs,” Aakash Chopra said.
For the 3rd spot, the former Kolkata Knight Riders cricketer went with MS Dhoni. The Chennai Super Kings skipper will be eager to live up to the reputation after bidding farewell to international cricket. With Suresh Raina out, a lot will depend on Dhoni.
“At No.3, I have got MS Dhoni. I feel he will have a good IPL. Because he has not played for 12-14 months and retired from international cricket as well and he will have only one target, to help CSK win,” Chopra added further.
Furthermore, Aakash Chopra went with Virat Kohli and KL Rahul for the second and first spot respectively. Both of them have scored heavily in recent time and is likely to keep up the run-scoring spree. Incidentally, Rahul has been among the highest run-scorers in the last couple of years.
“At No.1, I am going with KL Rahul. The kind of form that he has been in with the added responsibility that he is now the KXIP captain and with the type of mindset he has at the moment, I think he is going to rock it. I am expecting that he will be the top run-getter amongst the Indians in the tournament and could end up with the Orange Cap,” concluded Chopra.
