Aakash Chopra disappointed with PBKS captain Mayank Agarwal

Former Indian player Aakash Chopra expected Punjab Kings (PBKS) captain Mayank Agarwal to have a productive season with the batman in IPL 2022, which did not happen. The former Indian tennis player is now hoping to see the PBKS captain again in third place in Sunday’s match.

Agarwal, who replaced KL Rahul as PBKS captain, has had a mediocre season with Batman. The right-handed player has only 196 runs in 13 matches at a rate of 16.33 in just half a century. Although he had his moments as captain, the 31-year-old did not turn out to be the hitter the team demanded.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Chopra said it was disappointing to see Agarwal perform the way he did. Chopra also pointed out that the return of Shahrukh Khan should make way for the captain at the age of three.

“I was expecting from Mayank Agarwal, but he was disappointing with the stick. I was surprised to see Shahrukh Khan in third place. Since Bhanuka Rajapaksa didn’t play, Mayank Agarwal was in third place. very reasonable.”

In a tough 158 chase against SunRisers Hyderabad on Sunday, the Punjab Kings got off to a good start while Jonny Bairstow trailed behind the opponent. Khan and Agarwal started cheaply in a row to create an opportunity for SRH. However, Liam Livingstone’s No 49 (22) gave the Punjab Kings a consolation win with more than five spare passes.
