Former Indian opener and one of the most renowned commentators Aakash Chopra has praised the young Indian spinner Ravi Bishnoi for his excellent performance in the recently concluded India vs Australia T20I series. Team India under the captaincy of Suryakumar won the series by 4-1 and Bishnoi had been picked as the player of the series.
Meanwhile, Aakash Chopra has predicted that the way Bishnoi has bowled in the five-match T20I series against Australia, he will definitely be there in the upcoming T20I World Cup 2024 set to be jointly co-hosted by USA and West Indies.
Bishnoi has been one of the main weapons for Suryakumar as he not only delivered in the middle-overs but also in the power plays.
While speaking on his official YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra said, “I personally feel it’s almost a done deal. I feel his name will be there because of the way he is bowling and the number of wickets he is picking. He is consistent. He is a wicket-taker and bowls with the new ball. The matches will be in America and the West Indies. Slightly quick in the air on slow pitches – I think he will bring value. The kid fields well and he is very accurate as a wrist-spinner. I feel if he keeps bowling like this and has a decent IPL, he is a done deal.”
Ravi Bishnoi grabbed nine wickets in the series against Australia and was eventually awarded the title of Player of the Series. He has been selected for the upcoming tour to South Africa, where the spinner will contend with players like Kuldeep Yadav and Washington Sundar.
