Aakash Chopra has highlighted that the Ahmedabad franchise might have pulled off a great signing in the form of Rashid Khan ahead of IPL 2022 auction. The two new teams, Ahmedabad and Lucknow, have been asked to finalize their three draft picks before January 22. There were reports that KL Rahul and Rashid would play for the Lucknow-based team.
In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Aakash reacted to Hardik, Rashid, and Ishan Kishan’s connection with Ahmedabad’s team.
“According to the new, Hardik Pandya is going to become the captain of the Ahmedabad franchise. There are talks of Rashid Khan and Ishan Kishan, meaning the star Afghanistan spinner is not going to Lucknow. That’s a bit of heist, in my view,” he said.
The former KKR player feels Hardik Pandya is likely to be named as a captain is a big development. “Hardik Pandya will be their captain. That’s phenominal, this is very good,” he added.
