Aakash Chopra picks 4 foreign players of RCB
The Australian limited-overs skipper is a new addition in the batting line-up which will bolster RCB’s batting. Finch is also keen to give the Royal Challengers flying starts in the upcoming tournament.
“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.” Said Aakash Chopra on his YouTube Channel ‘Cricket Aakash’.
Aakash Chopra also said that either one of Parthiv Patel or Devdutt Padikkal should open the innings with Aaron Finch. Though it is possible that Virat Kohli might also decide to open with the Aussie batsman.
“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.”
Furthermore, Aakash Chopra picked the obvious of Virat Kohli at 3, AB de Villiers at 4, and Moeen Ali at 5. The middle is jam-packed with star players followed by which they have the luxury of playing Shivam Dube and Chris Morris down the order.
Aakash feels this year RCB have got it right which makes them a very strong team this season.
“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,” the commentator said.
