While Aakash Chopra has just represented India in 10 test matches, he is a very well renowned figure in Indian cricketing circles. The man who got a plethora of runs in domestic cricket has taken to commentary like a fish to water. The advent of Hindi commentary has been revolutionary and opened a lot more space for ex-cricketers to take it up as a profession post retirement.
However, Chopra is not just restricted to commentary, he is a brilliant analyst of the game and his ability to break down technique is second to none. This is also reflected in the views his YouTube channel generates and he has continued to tirelessly work during the lockdown. The man who is perhaps more recognised as a broadcaster and commentator than a Test cricketer by the current generation, recently picked current players who could potentially be great commentators.

Kuldeep is actually under-rated, he can be funny. So, Kuldeep Yadav will be my dark horse,” he added.
