IND vs AFG T20 World Cup 2021 Aakash Chopra picks his preferred bowling lineup playing XI for Team India

New Delhi. Aakash Chopra has chosen his favorite bowling lineup for Team India for their T20 World Cup 2021 match against Afghanistan. Along with this, he also questioned whether the selectors and the team management are on the same page and together Ravichandran Ashwin has been put on the bench. Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Varun Chakraborty and Ravindra Jadeja formed India’s five-way bowling attack for their opening match of the tournament against Pakistan. Shardul Thakur was given a chance against New Zealand in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, but Ashwin remained on the bench in this match as well.

Former Indian cricketer and current commentator Aakash Chopra shared his thoughts on India’s potential bowling lineup in a video shared on his YouTube channel. Given that Varun Chakraborty can be replaced by someone else. The former India cricketer questioned the decision of choosing Ashwin and not feeding him. He said, “You want to feed Varun Chakraborty, but he has not looked so penetrating. You have two options in the form of Rahul Chahar and Ravichandran Ashwin. Ashwin’s story is that you have picked such an experienced player in your team, so why are you not feeding him? Sitting experience on the bench is absolutely useless.”

Aakash Chopra wants Rahul Chahar in playing XI
However, Aakash Chopra still cast his vote for Rahul Chahar for the off-spinner. He said, “This is where the selection and team management look a little different. If you pick such an experienced player in the team and you have to keep him on the bench, you can do the same with Ravi Bishnoi. But I still don’t want to play him, I am going with Rahul Chahar.” Like other Indian bowlers, Varun Chakravarthy has also been found to be weak in the tournament so far. However, even the batsmen of his Team India have not been able to do anything special, so the bowlers are also a bit compelled.

Aakash Chopra is still with 3 pacers
Aakash Chopra feels that Team India should continue playing with three fast bowlers. He said, “The pitches are tiring, but we play the evening game. Dew is the real problem in the second innings. I would still like to go with three pacers. And I won’t make any changes.”

Before the IND vs AFG match, a different view was seen in the Indian net session, Rohit Sharma bowled and Suryakumar…

He further said, “You fed Bhuvi a match, then Shardul played a match and if you bring Bhuvi back you will say I did not do justice to Bhuvi, I am not doing justice to Shardul.” Shardul Thakur bowled just nine balls against New Zealand. Now it will be interesting to see if he stays in his place.

Akash Chopra made 2 changes in the playing XI against Afghanistan
If Suryakumar Yadav is fit and available, I will make 2 changes in the playing XI today. If not, a change in the playing XI and a strategic one.
1. Rahul Chahar in place of Varun Chakraborty
2. Suryakumar Yadav in place of Ishan Kishan… If Suryakumar Yadav is not available, then Ishan Kishan has to bat in the middle order.

Akash Chopra’s playing XI against Afghanistan: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (capt), Suryakumar Yadav/Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Rahul Chahar.
