Former Indian Test Cricketer, Aakash Chopra has been very famous for his brilliant write-ups but ever since he has become a commentator and cricket expert for the broadcaster Star Sports his popularity, owing to his famous Hindi slangs, has reached humungous heights.

Aakash one of the highest run-getters ever in the Indian domestic first-class cricket has his own video blog #AakashVani to engage his followers over Twitter over various cricket topics.

In a video, after the conclusion of the final between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad for Indian Premier League trophy, Aakash was seen at Wankhede Stadium picking his best eleven of the season and he has picked a good one.

Aakash has the big-hitting intent and class of Sunil Narine and KL Rahul opening the innings for him. Narine and Rahul were outstanding with their respective roles for Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab.

He has the solidity of Ambati Rayudu, one of the highest run-getters and Kane Williamson, the Purple Cap holder at no.3 and no.4 respectively, before slotting the belligerent Rishabh Pant for the no.5 position.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who turned the clock back with his batting this year is the Captain and the wicketkeeper-batsman in many best elevens and this one from Aakash for IPL is no different.

Aakash then wanted six and not five bowlers in his eleven and yet didn't want to compromise with the depth in batting. So, he has Krishnappa Gowtham, who had an excellent strike rate and also bowled his four overs for Rajasthan Royals, at no.7.

His bowling line-up possesses the magician Rashid Khan, with the fast bowling duty being given to Andrew Tye, Umesh Yadav, and Siddharth Kaul.
