Musheer Khan, Dhas, Saharan top Chopra’s list of rising stars from U19 World Cup

A day after India suffered heartbreak in the U19 World Cup finals against Australia, Chopra named Musheer Khan and others as rising stars

Former India opener Aakash Chopra named his favourite India picks from the recently-concluded U19 World Cup 2024. India suffered yet another heartbreak at the hands of Australia, this time the young ones bearing the brunt of a crushing loss in the finals.

Chopra impressed by India’s U19 performance

In a video on his YouTube channel, Chopra picks the rising stars to watch out for from the young Men in Blue camp. First on the list is semi-final hero Sachin Dhas. The ex-opener is mighty impressed with the youngster’s ability to free his arms and play shots.

Next on the list is undoubtedly the skipper Uday Saharan himself. The skipper played a key role for the side, leading from the front with his bat doing the talking throughout the series.

How can one leave out the blazing Musheer Khan from their list? Yes, the next on Chopra’s list is Sarfaraz’s brother who was in phenomenal form in the WC. The opener advised Musheer to work on his backfoot play and countering the short ball in the long run.
