Former Kolkata Knight Riders batter discusses how Yashasvi Jaiswal cannot be dropped from Team India squad

Yashasvi Jaiswal has been one of the finds for Team India last year and has been very consistent for the side as well.

Yashasvi Jaiswal

Yashasvi Jaiswal, according to Aakash Chopra, is practically unstoppable and has an advantage over Shubman Gill in the competition to be the first pick in India’s T20 World Cup 2024 team.

In the Twenty20 International series involving India and Afghanistan, Jaiswal hit an incredible 180.00 strike rate. He was able to smash 72 runs in two innings in the series. In the one game he missed, Gill scorched 23 runs with a strike rate of 191.67. However, he was also part of an error that resulted in Rohit Sharma being run out.

Aakash Chopra expressed his opinion that Jaiswal had defeated Gill in the race to be the opener. Aakash Chopra spoke in a video that he posted on his YouTube account, as he said “It’s clear that Yashasvi Jaiswal has run ahead of Shubman Gill. Yashasvi is ahead in the two-horse race, Gill is lagging slightly behind. Gill was played in the first match, dropped in the second, and wasn’t played in the third as well.”

The former Kolkata Knight Riders batter added, “Yashasvi was made to open in all three (last two) games. He was sent in the Super Over as well. The way Yashasvi is batting, it seems like he is not going anywhere. Considering what Yashasvi did in Indore and has done previously as well, he has become almost undroppable.”

If Jaiswal performs similarly in the opening games of the 2024 IPL, Chopra believes he will win the race. Gill would need to work hard to earn a spot in India’s T20 World Cup team, he continued.

“Opening is the best place for Kohli in T20s” : Aakash Chopra

Although Aakash Chopra believes that Virat Kohli has a better chance to open in Twenty20 cricket. He feels that India has chosen to put him at No. 3 and is confirmed to play there.

The former Team India opener added, “Before this series, Parthiv Patel said and I added more voice to that opinion, and I still believe opening is the best place for Kohli in T20s. However, it seems like Kohli will be at No. 3 because the Indian team is not thinking (about getting him to open).”
