Aakash Chopra feels the ODI World Cup to be played later this year in India would not be interesting if the matches are played on placid surfaces.
The Men in Blue set a massive 386-run target in the third and final ODI against New Zealand in Indore on Tuesday, January 24. The hosts then bowled out Tom Latham and Co. for 295 to register a 90-run win and complete a 3-0 whitewash.
While reviewing the game in a video shared on his YouTube channel, Chopra was disappointed with the benign track on offer, elaborating:
The former Indian opener feels tall-scoring affairs are not good for the game, stating:
Chopra sounded a warning bell ahead of the World Cup, observing:
India posted mammoth totals all four times they batted first against Sri Lanka and New Zealand. Barring a 12-run win in the first ODI against the Kiwis, Rohit Sharma and Co. registered emphatic victories in the other three games.
Speaking about India’s bowling, Chopra was all praise for Shardul Thakur, saying:
New Zealand seemed to be on course to chase down the 386-run target when they were comfortably placed at 184/2 after 25 overs. However, Shardul picked up three wickets in 10 deliveries to sway the game in India’s favor.
