IPL 2019: Aakash Chopra makes a clear-cut prediction for Rana
Cricket expert Aakash Chopra is known for the knack of chipping in with interesting opinions about the game of cricket. At times, his opinions can be strange too. Some may agree with his opinion and some may not. This time during the IPL match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings, he came up with a strong prediction.
Chennai Super Kings won the toss and elected to bowl first at iconic Eden Gardens, Kolkata. KKR got off to a blistering start as they smashed the opposition all around the park, with Chris Lynn being the highlight of the game. Sunil Narine was the first batsman to get out, after having been dismissed by 2 runs.
Aakash Chopra took to his Twitter handle to come up with a prediction to say that KKR would loss a wicket particularly after the strategic time-out. What was really interesting in his prediction was that he predicted the right bowler who will dismiss the right batsman. (i.e. Imran Tahir to dismiss Nitish Rana).
“Wicket after the time-out? In a couple of overs….Tahir to dismiss Rana?? Let’s find out ☺️ #KKRvCSK #IPL,” Aakash Chopra tweeted.

CSK’s Imran Tahir was the pick of the bowlers as he picked 4 wickets to his name.
