His top-order consisted of three left handed batsman. He chose Chris Gayle and Colin Munro as his openers.
He said,” Chris is an incredible player. He’s kind of player who can; single handedly win matches for his team. Colin Munro is also a great player. Though he isn’t that great in IPL; but when he is in form; he’s unstoppable. I think he plays best when he isn’t in pressure. Due to the pressure factor, he may not be that great in IPL.”
He chose Nicholas Pooran at no.3 and also made him wicket-keeper. Aakash called Pooran a ’24-karat gold’ in CPL.
