With the IPL 2020 coming closer former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra has been busy with analysis of teams measuring their strength and weaknesses. He also has been picking the ideal playing XI of every team along with a variety of other stuff which he has been regularly posting on his Youtube channel.
In the recent one, he has picked up his top three spinners in IPL history. Chopra has picked Harbhajan Singh, Amit Mishra and Ravichandran Ashwin in his top three.
“Harbhajan Singh, Ravichandran Ashwin and Amit Mishra will be my three choices but if you talk about the last five years, then Rashid Khan is the best because he has gone far ahead. Sunil Narine has also been very good although he has not been that effective for the last couple of years,” Aakash told in his Youtube video.
