Aakash Chopra says “We have already put our lives’ remote control in others’ hands” in T20 World Cup 2021. He has stated that Team India’s fate is in his hands. They don’t have control over it anymore. They need other results to go to the semi-finals. The Indian team was handed crushing defeats by Pakistan and New Zealand. They are yet to open their account in the competition. Also, they need to win their remaining three encounters. And then hope for other results to go their way to qualify for the knockout stages. While in a clash against Afghanistan in a video shared. On his YouTube channel, Chopra features that Team India will have to rely on other results.
“Nothing is easy, to win a match in the World Cup, now I see all the matches as difficult. We have lost to Pakistan and New Zealand. Our fate is hanging by a very thin thread. We have already put our lives’ remote control in others’ hands,” Aakash Chopra said.
“I am still saying India will win but is it actually a cakewalk. There are no games that are cakewalks in this World Cup as far as we are concerned. The toss will be in focus again. But do you still need the toss to defeat Afghanistan? Toss is important but it is not the be-all and end-all,” Chopra said.
Moreover, team India will hope that Kohli wins the toss. They get to chase for the first time in the competition. With Afghanistan showing a preference for setting targets. Also, the toss might not have any relevance. He mentioned that Team India will have their task cut out Against Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Mohammad Nabi.
“Afghanistan is a serious threat. Take them lightly at your own peril. If we were stuck in front of Shadab, Ish, and Santner, there will be three excellent spinners here. If Mujeeb is fit, our story is going to be very difficult,” Chopra said.
“Lastly, Afghanistan has batsmen who like to play the big shots. Their batsmen don’t have any timidness. They do have a very decent batting lineup. They will keep on attacking. If a guy is there for 30 balls, he will kill you,” Chopra added.
