A week prior to the start of the upcoming Indian Premier League which kickstarts with heavyweights Chennai Super Kings squaring off against Royal Challengers Bangalore, former India batsman and commentator Aakash Chopra has revealed his all time IPL XI which features the best from the past 11 seasons.
The team features-
-Three from West Indies
-One from South Africa
-Three from Mumbai Indians
-Two from Royal Challengers Bangalore
-Three from Chennai Super Kings
-One from Sunrisers Hyderabad
-One from Kings XI Punjab
-One from Kolkata Knight Riders
Chopra picked IPL’s all time highest individual run scorer in a game- Chris Gayle who notched 175 not out against former franchise Pune Warriors India, who will open the innings alongside India’s limited overs vice skipper Rohit Sharma.
The formidable looking middle order consists of Virat Kohli followed by AB de Villiers, Suresh Raina and the finisher spot going to MS Dhoni and former Windies player Dwayne Bravo.
The bowling attack features Windies spinner Sunil Narine alongside the experienced Harbhajan Singh. Indian pace duo of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah makes the pace battery.
