Former Indian Cricketer Picks Shahid Afridi as the Best T20I All-Rounder of the Decade

Former Indian opening batsman turned commentator Aakash Chopra chose Shahid Afridi as his best T2oI all-rounder of the decade.

Talking about the best players of the decade in each category, the 42-year old chose Virat Kohli as the best batsman, Lasith Malinga as the best bowler, and Shahid Afridi as the best all-rounder. He also selected Jos Buttler as the best wicket-keeper.

He tweeted:

Awards for the best in T20i in the 2010s (decade).

Batsman— Kohli. Bowler— Malinga. All-Rounder—Afridi. Wicketkeeper—Buttler. What’s yours?

His decision to include Shahid Afridi was not appreciated by a number of Indian cricket fanatics. They responded harshly to Aakash, inquiring why he included a Pakistani.

What do you make of his selection? Let us know in the comments section below.
