Aakash Chopra wants Punjab Kings to keep Mayank Agarwal and make him captain

Aakash Chopra feels Punjab Kings should keep Mayank Agarwal and give him the captaincy if KL Rahul chose to leave the franchise before the 2022 IPL auction.

Captain Rahul and Agarwal are the only two Punjab Kings beaters to surpass the 200-game mark in IPL 2021. Some reports suggest Rahul doesn’t want to be retained by the Mohali-based team and may instead ignore the branding New Lucknow.

During a discussion on Star Sports, Aakash Chopra suggested that the Punjab Kings would have no choice but to keep Mayank Agarwal and make him captain should Rahul decide to go through. He say:

“Retain Mayank Agarwal and make him captain because you won’t get a captain it will be a different matter because two more teams will be added to the eight existing ones. If KL Rahul is not there, it will be another matter. there, Mayank Agarwal is a blind choice for you, you have to pick him for sure and make him captain.”

Former Indian cricketer also named Ravi Bishnoi and Shahrukh Khan are two other Indian players that the Punjab Kings should keep. Chopra explains:

“The other two names that come to my mind are Ravi Bishnoi, he’s an underrated player so you won’t lose too much money there. And Shahrukh Khan, although we don’t know how much he will take. much money to be kept because you already have. you yourself bought him for five crores, God only knows how you will keep him for four crores now.”

Bishnoi has scored 12 goals in the 9 games he plays at IPL 2021 and has a great economy of 6.38. Khan had 153 runs in 11 encounters but his stature grew by leaps and bounds following a winning performance against Tamil Nadu in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy final.

“I’ll let Mohammed Shami go” – Aakash Chopra on Punjab Kings’ other retention options

Aakash Chopra concluded by saying that he would not want the Punjab Kings to withhold anyone from their overseas army. He observes:

“These will be three options in my mind. I will let Shami go, I will let Deepak Hooda go. I will not keep any foreign players, whether it is Christopher Henry Gayle or Nicholas Pooran. “

Aiden Markram may be the only foreign player the Punjab Kings could consider keeping. The Proteas hitter has rated himself well at the IPL 2021 and the next T20 World Cup, and was able to deliver some decent ball tackle as well.
