Aakash Chopra appreciated the young Angkrish Raghuvanshi for his phenomenal display of batting skills during the DC vs KKR match.

Former Indian cricketer and currently popular commentator Aakash Chopra has heaped praise on young batter Angkrish Raghuvanshi for his impressive performance in the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) dominant win over the Delhi Capitals (DC) in the IPL 2024 match played on Wednesday, April 3rd.

In a video uploaded to his YouTube channel, Chopra lauded Raghuvanshi’s fearless batting approach. He compared the youngster’s style to that of two established Indian cricketers, highlighting his ability to play a variety of shots.

“When you saw Raghuvanshi, he said it doesn’t make a difference to him whether it’s Anrich Nortje or Khaleel Ahmed—’who’cares’. He was hitting from the first ball. He scored his runs at a strike rate of 200. He reminded me of both Suryakumar Yadav and Shubman Gill,” remarked Aakash, as quoted by Sportskeeda.

Chopra continued his praise, emphasising Raghuvanshi’s confidence and attacking mindset. “After that, a small kid named Raghuvanshi. This player also showed that he is the identity of the new India. How times have changed—when Mayank Yadav bowls, he is also the new India’s kid; it doesn’t matter to him who is standing in front of him, whether it’s Jonny Bairstow, Cameron Green, or Glenn Maxwell,” added Aakash.

“He played one Supla shot; if his picture is blurred and you are asked who played that shot, you will say Surya, but Raghuvanshi played it. Then, in the shots he played on his legs, I was seeing glimpses of Shubman Gill in some of his shots. Raghuvanshi was absolutely phenomenal,” Chopra concluded.

Notably, Raghuvanshi played a crucial role in KKR’s dominant 106-run victory and smashed a blistering 54 runs off just 27 balls. His knock was instrumental in pushing KKR to a total of 272 runs, which is apparently the second-highest total a team has ever made in the history of the IPL.

The 18-year-old batter’s crucial partnership with Sunil Narine (85 off 39 balls) in just eight overs effectively put the game out of DC’s reach. The young talent might be seen again in KKR’s next match with the Chennai Super Kings on April 8th.
