Aakash Chopra Predicts The Score Of Virat Kohli And Team India In The First Inning Against West Indies

Team India made a great start in the second Test against West Indies. Skipper Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal stitched a 139-run partnership between them for the first wicket. However, West Indies made a strong comeback and India ended their day one at 288/4. Virat Kohli is there at the crease on 87 with Ravindra Jadeja(36).

Meanwhile, the former Indian opener and now a renowned commentator Aakash Chopra has predicted that Kohli will get a big century at Port of Spain. Aakash said that Kohli showed a great patient in the first Test and he is doing the same thing in the second Test match.

The former KKR player said,“Well, he is not too far from his century. So, once he gets to that score, the amount of patience that he has shown already in Dominica and again in Trinidad, you expect him to actually convert that century — if he gets to that — into a really be one.”

Talking about the ideal score India would get after a good start, Aakash Chopra stated,”India would like to score as many as they can, because they have been asked to bat first. I don’t think they have a score in mind or will have a score in mind on Day Two and everybody should get to bat. If you get to 550 that would be great, but will India get to 550? We don’t know. But they would want as many as they can.”

Aakash Chopra explained that the pitch will favour the batters on Day 2 as well. He said even if it slows down, it won’t create any huge obstacle for the batters.

The former batter said,”It is slow; it is going to be low, but I am not expecting demons in the pitch with regards to batting against the spinners or even against the fast bowlers. The second new ball is due. They will take it at some stage. But I don’t see even that ball threatening the Indian batters.”
