Akash Chopra named Test XI’s best Test XI of just two Indians

New Delhi. Former Indian opener Akash Chopra has been selected as the Test XI of the decade in the late 2020s. Chopra has been considering the performance of players in the international circuit since 2011 and only two Indians have made it to this prestigious list. The former Indian opener has selected Alastair Cook as the opener in this playing XI. Chopra believes that when the history of Test cricket is written, Cook’s name will be written in golden letters.

Currently famous cricket critic Akash Chopra has chosen South Africa’s legendary batsman Hashim Amla as Australia’s David Warner because he believes there are Warners in some sub-continents, especially in England and New Zealand. The record is not good.

Akash Chopra has shared a video on his Facebook page about his election. “I chose Alastair Cook as the opener,” he said in the video. He has scored 7531 runs in Test cricket this decade with 18 centuries and an average of 44.8. This is a big Test career and his name will be written in golden letters when the history of Test cricket is written.Steve Smith No. 3 batsman

He further said, “The second player I have chosen is Hashim Amla. David Werner’s name was also mentioned here, but some things were against it. Their numbers are not as good as in England and New Zealand. Amla has scored 46 544646 runs at an average of 1 century and an 46. “The toughest number three has gone with Steve Smith instead of Chopra Route, who is the second highest run scorer this decade.” According to Chopra, Smith is the best Test batsman of the decade and it is very important to stay in his lineup.

Virat Kohli occupied No. 4

It is not surprising that Virat Kohli is ranked No. 4 in Akash Chopra in the Playing XI of the Decade. Virat Kohli has scored 7240 runs in Test cricket this decade with an average of 27 centuries and 53.
