Aakash Chopra posts video of batsman hitting six: The former Indian batsman has posted an intriguing video on Twitter.
Former India opening batsman Aakash Chopra posted a video of a local match in the morning which sees the batsman hitting the ball from behind the stumps.
The shot which went for a huge six on the leg-side is being praised for the manner in which the batsman uses the depth of the crease.
Having hit the boundary from behind the stumps, the batsman seemed to have unintentionally emulated India Women’s opening batswoman Shafali Verma who hit a similar shot during India’s last league stage match of the recently concluded ICC Women’s T20 World Cup against Sri Lanka.
It is worth mentioning that the shot wasn’t the primary criteria for which Chopra posted the video. The 42-year old, who has a loyal fan-following across social media platforms due to his commentary and sharp analysis of the game, has given a golden opportunity to his fans to get their playing videos voiced by him.
“If you want your playing videos to be voiced, please share with me. Let’s keep each other engaged while maintaining social distancing,” read Chopra’s tweet.
With the outbreak of a “pandemic” in coronavirus has affected cricketing tournaments in more ways than one, all live action has been postponed until the situation returns back to normal. Chopra appears to be engaging well with his fans in these tough times.
