Former Indian Test team opener and current cricket commentator Aakash Chopra has made a big prediction before the 15th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Aakash Chopra has named the cricketers whom the new IPL teams can join. From IPL 2022, this tournament is going to be of 10 teams, not 8, because the teams of Lucknow and Ahmedabad will also be part of this T20 league. In such a situation, before the mega auction, these two teams have a chance to add a maximum of three players, which can be two Indian and one foreign player.
Former cricketer Aakash Chopra, while talking on his YouTube channel has speculated that KL Rahul may be seen in the Lucknow team after breaking his partnership with Punjab Kings and he will also be the captain of the team. It is also being claimed in media reports that the team of Lucknow is considering adding KL Rahul with them for Rs 20 crore. Apart from this, Aakash Chopra believes that the captain of the Ahmedabad team could be Shreyas Iyer, who has not been retained by Delhi Capitals. He has the experience of captaining this tournament and under his captaincy the team has also played the final of IPL.
Which player will the new teams choose?
Aakash Chopra has predicted the addition of Rashid Khan as an overseas player with Lucknow, while Aakash Chopra, as another Indian, has given the Lucknow team to wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan. At the same time, apart from Shreyas with Ahmedabad, there is also a possibility of David Warner joining. They are foreign players who have not been retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad due to a bad season. Apart from this, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has also expressed the possibility of joining the team of Ahmedabad, because Royal Challengers Bangalore ie RCB has not retained Chahal, who is a strong bowler in the short format.
