Akash Chopra denies nepotism in Indian cricket

“And when he performed for India, it was for the reason that he was continually carrying out incredibly perfectly for Bengal. In simple fact, forget all that, he was even not participating in in the Mumbai Ranji workforce. He was not acquiring a location in the Mumbai crew even nevertheless he had the surname as Gavaskar,” Chopra said.

There have been no these ineffective alternatives even in the India underneath-19 workforce. Any time the range comes about, it would be for the reason that of a sterling efficiency,” Chopra stated about the Indian cricket crew.
