IPL 2020: Aakash Chopra picks RCB’s four overseas players for the starting XI

Former India cricketer Aakash Chopra has put forth his opinion on the four overseas players who deserve to be in the starting XI of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.

Chopra was recently asked whether RCB should pick veteran Aaron Finch or opt for both Chris Morris and Moeen Ali. The cricketer-turned commentator opined that the Bangalore-based franchise should pick all three of them along with AB de Villiers.

“I feel you can play all three. You can play Finch as opener, AB de Villiers as a batsman, Moeen Ali and Chris Morris. These will be my four overseas players in the RCB team I would like to make,” Chopra said in a video shared on his Facebook page.

“You have enough Indian spin and Moeen Ali will also give some overs of spin. You have a lot of Indian pacers, you have Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj – you have enough,” he added.

‘Aaron Finch should open in all matches’

Chopra further remarked that Aaron Finch should be the first choice for the opening position and he could be paired up with either Parthiv Patel or Devdutt Padikkal.

“If you are an RCB fan, I would say that you play Aaron Finch in all the matches and open with him. There you can go for either Parthiv or Devdutt Padikkal as the opener along with Finch, that is something you may have to decide.”

While Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Moeen Ali would be the next three batsmen in the pecking order, as per Chopra.

“Virat Kohli at 3, AB de Villiers at 4 and Moeen Ali at 5. It sounds very good. At No.6, you will have Shivam Dube and then you have Chris Morris. So their batting is also looking good. I am feeling that this team is good this year and that they would be doing well,” Chopra concluded.

“It was Sakshi’s idea to name it Helicopter”: Dwayne Bravo on his song for MS Dhoni

West Indies and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) talisman Dwayne Bravo is a man who wears many hats. On-field, he is a virtuoso with both bat and the ball. Off-field, he is an accomplished songwriter who makes people all over the world groove with his disco beat and catchy tunes.

Bravo recently revealed that it was MS Dhoni’s wife Sakshi’s idea to name the song ‘Helicopter 7’ that was released on the eve of the 39th birthday of the former Indian skipper.

“Yeah yeah (got great response), from him (Dhoni) and from his wife (Sakshi). His wife was instrumental in some of the things put into the song. For example, naming the song helicopter was her idea. I wanted to call the song No. 7,” said Bravo.

“I asked some of his fans too about the things they want and the thing that stood out was helicopter. I’m just happy I was able to put together a project like this. The song reached a million views within an hour.”

‘I didn’t want it to be a farewell song’

Both Bravo and Dhoni have been in the CSK dressing room for many years now and share a great camaraderie. The Trinidadian further remarked that he wanted to sing about Dhoni’s illustrious career and his remarkable achievements while he is still playing.

“I’m heavily into music and I said to my musical team that I have to do a song for this guy and I have to do it before he [MS Dhoni] retires. I didn’t want it to be a farewell song or a sad song. I wanted it to be a song highlighting his achievements throughout his career while he’s still playing,” he said.

“A lot of people remember players when they finish. Honestly, I had no idea that he’s going to retire. Good news is he’s still going to be playing in yellow,” Bravo concluded.

Bravo is currently plying his trade for Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020. He will be soon joining his skipper Dhoni and the rest of the CSK squad in Dubai for the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
