MSD, itself is a great name in Cricket, the Captain of two-time World Champion Indian team, stalwart of IPL who lead his team(CSK) to 3 titles, oneof the greatest finisher of al-time and the man with Midas touch whose captaincy is as sharp as his stumping skills, has also been given the duties of Wicket–keeping and slots in the eleven at No.6.
Aakash Chopra has chosen the Universe Boss Chris Gayle along with Fiery David Warner to open the innings. While Gayle have been the batsman with most T20 runs across the globe, David Warner has been the most Consistent Batsman in The IPL in recent times with a career strike rate of 142.3 so far.
Surprisingly, Aakash Chopra has slotted Rohit Sharma and VIrat Kohli at No.3 and No. 4 consecutively. This might come as a surprise to every cricket lover as the Indian Captain Virat Kohli has always preferred to bat at one down. But citing the reason that Rohit Sharma’s explosive batting can benefit the team, Aakash Chopra has slotted Rohit at No.3 with VK coming at No. 4.
South African Great AB de villiers has been slotted at no. 5 with MSD doing the finisher’s role at no.6.
Askash Chopra brood over Pandya and Pollard for the fast bowling all-rounder slot before finalising the name of Jamaican Big hitting all-rounder Andre Russell. For spinning all-rounder’s slot Shahid Afridi Pips Sunil Narine. While Afridi will be joined by Afghanistan’s magical spinner Rashid Khan in the spin bowling department.
As far as the fast bowling department is concerned, he went with the duo of Boom-boom Bumrah and Malinga-Slinga, the feiry toe-cruising Yorker Kings.
