The former Indian cricketer, Aakash Chopra has been doing commentary ever since his retirement from both the domestic as well as international cricket. After several efforts to get his game in the right direction and be back in the national side, Chopra picked up on the creative skills in cricket commentary.
And, at this point in his life, the cricketer-turned-commentator is regarded as one of the best Hindi commentators.
However, one cannot impress everyone with his knowledge and art of the game, especially in cricket. And so, there are several who likes him while many don’t share a similar interest in Chopra’s commentary.
Like the other personalities, Chopra has also faced several critics questioning and mocking his commentary. A similar incident happened on Wednesday after New Zealand defeated India in the first limited-overs game of the three-match ODI series.
As soon as the game was over, a cricket fan took to Twitter, to post a hilarious meme that ought to make fun of Chopra. The fan tagged the ex-cricketer while posting the meme on the social media account.
He captioned the meme as:
“Kya khti hai inki #akashvani IRA Dekh Lena….#INDvsPAK”
@cricketaakash only for you..

Akash Chopra taking on his critics sportingly:
After the hilarious meme posted by the cricket fan, one would have assumed Chopra to be offended. However, the former cricketer-cum-commentator came up with a fitting reply.

On the other hand, Virat Kohli & Co. suffered a thrashing defeat on the hands of the hosts, right after they had emerged as the ultimate winners in the five-match T20I series. After losing the toss, India’s top-order couldn’t show much promise.
However, skipper Virat Kohli (51), Shreyas Iyer (103), and KL Rahul’s (88) fair share of batting performance led India to amass a total of 347 runs. With Kane Williamson still missing from the squad, it was unlikely for the Kiwis batsmen to chase down the massive target. However, Ross Taylor led from the front to slam a fine ton (109*).
While Taylor’s unbeaten century led to India’s loss, Henry Nicholls (78) and Tom Latham (69) equally played a crucial role to finish things off.
New Zealand defeated the Men in Blue by four wickets with 11 balls to spare.
