Aakash Chopra seems to have excelled as a commentator and expert analyst of the gentleman's game in the last few years. This has been his second innings after he did not click as a cricketer as he could only play 10 Test matches for India from 2003 to 2004 respectively. He was then roped in by Kolkata Knight Riders for the inaugural edition of the IPL in 2008 which was his only IPL stint. Apart from commentary and expert analysis, Chopra is also active on social media and has won praises and criticism of fans on many occasions. Recently, the former opening batsman had given a befitting reply to a troll who had made fun of his cricketing career.
A troll had decided to mock Aakash Chopra's short cricketing career by saying that he should somehow make his international debut and then he will get a job as a commentator, analyst, and critic like the ex-batsman.
However, the cricketer-turned-commentator did not back out in giving back a savage reply to the troll. Taking to the micro-blogging site, Chopra wrote that there are 296 Test cricketers out of 1.3 Billion people in India and asked the troll whether he thought that it was easy peasy lemon squeezy. The star commentator then mocked at that person by saying that he would be honored to commentate on his India debut.
Aakash Chopra had a very special story for MS Dhoni. It so happened was that Chopra, who is a part of the commentary panel for the third and final Test match against South Africa which is being played at MS Dhoni's hometown in Ranchi decided to imitate one of the legendary cricketer's trademark shot i.e the 'Helicopter Shot'. The cricketer-turned-commentator went on to post the video on social media. Watch it right here.
