Former Indian cricketer and expert Aakash Chopra has ranked the current Indian Premier League (IPL) teams according to their finishing ability. The 42-year old is quite active across all social media platforms, and this time he conducted this exercise on his Facebook page.
Let’s take a look at Aakash Chopra’s top 4 picks for the teams with the best finishers in IPL 2020.
1. Mumbai Indians
With the presence of Kieron Pollard in the side, Chopra kept Mumbai Indians right at the top. He mentioned that Pollard is currently in the red-hot form in the current Caribbean Premier League edition. He scores consistently and bats well against the spinners too. The Mumbai-based franchise also has Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya in the side, which makes them look even deadlier.
2. Kolkata Knight Riders
Aakash Chopra kept his former side Kolkata Knight Riders at the second spot in the list of top teams with the best finishers in IPL 2020. He mentioned last year’s most valuable player Andre Russell would be a key player for them in this season as well. Also, with the experience of skipper Dinesh Karthik and Eoin Morgan, KKR’s middle order looks quite solid now.
3. Delhi Capitals
The Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals occupied the third spot in Chopra’s this list. He mentioned that Rishabh Pant would continue to be a crucial member of the Capitals. The inclusion of in-form Shimron Hetmyer can prove to be lethal for DC in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League.
4. Chennai Super kings
Three-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings finished this list after occupying the last spot. The Indian commentator mentioned CSK skipper MS Dhoni as the one-man army and believes he will continue with his terrific run. The experienced players like Dwayne Bravo, Kedar Jadhav and Ravindra Jadeja have the apt skills to finish off the games for their side.
