Former Team India cricketer Aakash Chopra has picked up his best XI from the recently concluded IPL 2021. Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) defeated Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 27 runs at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium to lift their fourth IPL title.

Chopra went with CSK pair of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis for the opener’s slot. Both of them have scored over 600 runs in the season and have played a massive role to guide Chennai lift their fourth trophy. Speaking on his YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra said:

“Let me start with the two openers who lifted the trophy – Ruturaj with Faf. The special thing about Ruturaj is that he has the skills, temperament, maturity beyond his age. Along with him is Faf – cometh the hour, cometh the man. They have the setting that if one gets out, the other scores runs.”

Aakash Chopra picked KL Rahul as the wicketkeeper-batter at the number three position. The Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell made his list at the number four spot. For the fifth spot, Chopra selected Tripathi ahead of Pant. The KKR batter produced some splendid performances for the team. He looked dominating with the bat, chipping in crucial runs for the team.

The cricketer-turned-commentator picked up Shimron Hetmyer for the finishers’s role while Yuzvendra Chahal and Varun Chakravarthy made it to Aakash Chopra’s XI as the spinning options. The purple cap winner Harshal Patel and India’s ace speedster Jasprit Bumrah made their way into the fast-bowling unit.
