“I will include a left-field selection in Prithvi Shaw as well. I am enjoying the way he plays his cricket. His brand of cricket takes the world by storm. It is not necessary that he will score runs in every match, but the day he scores, he will ruin the opposition,” Chopra said.
Aakash Chopra believes KL Rahul might open with Rohit Sharma in T20 WC
Aakash Chopra feels it will be a toss-up between KL Rahul and Virat Kohli to partner Rohit Sharma at the top for the global T20 meet.
“In the end, it might just be a toss-up between Rahul and Kohli. Rahul might just win that race because now Pant will definitely play; he will come in the middle order, and it is not necessary for Rahul to play in the middle order,” Chopra said.
“You can manage the lower order with Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, and Jaddu. I will have Rahul right at the top. If not open, then at three. If he comes at three, then Kohli opens. That’s where I think things are moving.,” he added.
