Aakash Chopra says “We are not trying” in IND vs NZ T20I

Team India, according to Chopra, managed to get Venkatesh Iyer to roll his arm over. It should definitely be one of the changes. They should also make it to the second T20 International against New Zealand. Iyer made his India debut against the Kiwis in the first T20I, batting at No. 6. He was not given the ball, though, as Rohit Sharma used his five specialist bowlers. In their whole four-over quota. Chopra mentioned Venkatesh Iyer as a possible replacement for Hardik Pandya when previewing the second T20I. Iyer can only be turned into an all-rounder, he said. If he is skilled in all aspects of the game.

“The one change I want is that Venkatesh Iyer should be made to bowl. It is necessary to get him to bowl because we are not trying. We are searching for an alternative for Hardik Pandya, a pace-bowling all-rounder,” Aakash Chopra said.

“An all-rounder can only be made when he does the all-around job when he bats and does some bowling with that. The number at which we are making him bat, the batting will not come at all; nine out of ten times he will not get to play more than 10 balls if he bats at six. So get him to bowl – two, three, and if possible even four,” “The one change I want is that Venkatesh Iyer should be made to bowl. It is necessary to get him to bowl because we are not trying. We are searching for an alternative for Hardik Pandya, a pace-bowling all-rounder,” Chopra added.
