Akash Chopra trolls himself in Twitter, in a dismissal video of Brett Lee
In the answer of which cricketer has been the most active on social media about cricket issues, it will definitely be former Indian batsman Aakash Chopra. This time he has trolled himself in a video, where he was stumped by Brett Lee.
Chopra started his test career against New Zealand in 2003. He scored 60 and 52 in his first two Tests. Unfortunately, in the remaining 8 Tests of his career, he couldn’t pass fifty again and ended with 437 in his tally.
Although he hadn’t that much success as an individual, but he was part of two historic tours for India. Historic year against Pakistan in 2004 and then previous to that, he went to Australia in 2003-04 under the captaincy of Sourav Ganguly. India almost came close to winning the series after their 705-run inning in Sydney Test, but they drew the Test series 1-1.
Chopra played all the four Tests but scored only 186 runs at an average of 23.25. Among them, the highest score was 48, which he scored in the first innings at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
The former Indian batsman shared a video clip of that Test in his Twitter account, where he is seen clean bowled by Brett Lee with a 147.5 kph yorker. He got out after scoring only 45, although he shared a 123-run partnership for the first wicket with Virender Sehwag before getting out.
Sachin Tendulkar came in after Chopra got out and played one of the best knocks in Test history. Sachin made a record score of 241* which had no shot in covers on the off side for the first time. Besides, he also formed a partnership of 353-run stand for the fourth wicket along with Rahul Dravid.
I’ve seen this a thousand times…played it in my head same number of times too. Unfortunately, for the exact same result. ?? @BrettLee_58, why waste such a good delivery on me?? Should’ve saved it for @sachin_rt….I got out, he walked in and we know what happened next. 241*? https://t.co/h3taE4zBpO
