Aakash Chopra says ‘It doesn’t sit right with me’ on KL Rahul in IPL 2021. Chopra has proposed that the contrast between the batsmen. It is around him that does not legitimize KL Rahul’s cautious approach. At the best of the order for Punjab Kings. KL Rahul’s conservative approach in the T20s once again. It is becoming a talking point on Friday night. He scored a 55-ball 67 and failed to finish the game for his side. Punjab is finally abandoning their way to a 5-wicket win courtesy from Shah Rukh Khan.
Moreover, reviewing Punjab’s win on his YouTube channel. Chopra believes that Rahul’s moderate approach. It is putting pressure on other batsmen during a run-chase.
“I don’t know what to make of Rahul’s innings, because if you’ve scored 67 off 55 balls while opening in a chase of 166, then you are expecting the other players to score 100 runs off 11 overs because you have played nine overs yourself. Just playing slow because the others aren’t scoring, it doesn’t sit right with me,” Chopra said.
The selection of Punjab’s playing XI by Anil Kumble. He manages has been the talking point since last season. On top of repeatedly benching leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi. Also, the management hasn’t shown much faith in hard-hitting batsman Shah Rukh Khan either. He did well during the first leg. But was astonishingly left out of the starting XI in the first three games that PBKS played in the UAE.
“That just begs the question. You bought Shahrukh for 5.25 crore. He played well in the first half also and you even said he reminds you of Kieron Pollard, but then in the second half, you didn’t even play him. This was his first match,” Chopra said.
