IPL 2021 Auction – Aakash Chopra’s advice to Virat Kohli’s RCB, ‘buy Karun Nair’. Royal Challengers has got little surprsing advice from former India cricketer Aakash Chopra. According to Chopra, RCB should buy Karun Nair at the auctions on Thursday.
Pundit Aakash Chopra, on his YouTube channel, suggested that, ‘RCB should go for Karun Nair in the auction’. Pointing out that they are now left with just three Indian batsmen (Virat Kohli, Devdutt Padikkal and Pavan Deshpande) in their line-up, Chopra believes that the franchise might go for Karnataka bastman.
Nair was previously part of the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) team before being released this term. With Karun Nair hailing from Karnataka, it will be a homecoming if RCB were to sign him. Aakash Chopra thinks that the 29-year-old Nair can provide some much needed solidity in the RCB’s middle-order.
