Aakash Chopra Picks Possible Top-6 For The 1st T20I Against Ireland

India and Ireland will face each other in the first match of the three-match T20I series at Dublin. Former Indian batter and one of the most renowned commentators Aakash Chopra has talked about the probable top-6 players in the eleven for the 1st Test.

The opening match of the three-game T20I series is scheduled to take place in Dublin on Friday, August 18. Sanju Samson was chosen over Ishan Kishan as the wicketkeeper-batsman in the three T20Is against the West Indies. But, he will have a competition with the Punjab Kings wicket-keeper Jitesh Sharma.

While having a conversation on his Youtube Channel, Aakash Chopra picked Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ruturaj Gaikwad as the prime openers. He put Sanju Samson at number three.

Aakash Chopra said,”Yashasvi Jaiswal alongside Ruturaj Gaikwad, I want to go with these two openers. This is a good place to score, both the straight and side boundaries are very short. The ball swings but the pitch is also flat. It is a huge series for Ruturaj Gaikwad.”

The former Indian further added,”If I want to play Jitesh Sharma, then I can keep Tilak Varma at No. 3. I can play Tilak at three in any case and bat Sanju down the order but when you have decided that you want to play Sanju Samson, play him at No. 3. If Sanju Samson doesn’t do well here, this story will not be hunky-dory.”
