Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra has made a list of five most expensive Indian bowlers for the upcoming IPL 2022. Let’s take a look at these players and their track record so far.
Some of the layers who missed out the prominent list of the cricketer are Harshal Patel, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, however, the list of retained players so far are Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, and Mohammed Siraj.
Aakash Chopra named the five most expensive bowlers through his YouTube video channel and Indian cricketer famous Krishna’s name comes in fifth place.
Aakash Chopra described the player in his own words as follows:
“At no.5, I have kept Prasidh Krishna’s name because of two reasons. He is playing for India also now. He has two or three things that no one else has. Height – point of release is outstanding, he has got the pace and now has the experience of two to three years.”
Cricketer-turned-commentator-turned-Indian fast bowler Avesh Khan’s name is listed at the fourth spot. Akash has mentioned the player’s name in his channel for the following reasons and in his own words:
“At no.4, I have kept the player whose name has come just now in the team – Avesh Khan. His last year was phenomenal and the year prior to that was also good. He played ahead of Ishant and Umesh, bowls both with the new and old ball. His special thing is that the ball hits high on the bat and with speed.”
List three comes in the name of Rahul Chahar, whom Aakash Chopra considers as the hottest pick in the IPL 2022 auction. He says below:
“At no.3, I have kept Rahul Chahar. There are a lot of spinners but I have kept his name. Rahul Chahar is a proven customer, he has played for Mumbai on extremely small grounds. I think he has got a raw deal, was in the Indian World Cup team but was not selected after that.”
However, the name of Ravindra Ashwin was given a thought by Akash but he argued that Ashwin was not one of the late wickets; age was also not in his favor.
The list continues with Yuzvendra Chahal at the 2nd position being the most expensive player:
“At no.2, I have kept Yuzvendra Chahal. He is a gun bowler although his numbers might have gone down for the last little while. The second half of the last IPL was outstanding. He has pedigree, performance, potential – he is brilliant.”
And the name of Deepak Chahar comes at number one. Watch what Aakash Chopra had to say for Khiladi:
“At no.1, I have kept Deepak Chahar. He is a wicket-taker with the new ball. You don’t see any other Indian bowler like that, he is a bank in the first three overs, you break the back of the opponent. He is alright at the death but you can manage with him.”
