Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra has picked the aggressive and selfless batting of Mayank Agarwal and his excellent partnership with KL Rahul at the top of the order as the biggest positives for KXIP in IP 2020.
He made this observation while talking about the gain the Punjab-based franchise made in the recently concluded edition of the IPL in a video shared on his Facebook page.
Aakash Chopra started by praising the Kings XI Punjab’s opening pair of Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul, with the duo giving the franchise a flying start more often than not.
The reputed commentator pointed out that KL Rahul has been the epitome of consistency. The Kings XI Punjab captain has not only won the Orange Cap this year but has scored in excess of 600 runs in each of the last three seasons of the IPL.
Aakash Chopra highlighted that Mayank Agarwal had played the aggressive opener’s role to perfection for Kings XI Punjab and did not take a backward step on any instance, thereby allowing KL Rahul to play the long innings.
The former KKR player named Nicholas Pooran as the other positive in the Kings XI Punjab batting department for the big-hitting left-hander’s game-changing abilities.
