Former Indian opener Aakash Chopra has made a name for himself as a commentator and analyst. However, his recent analysis of Delhi Daredevil’s performance in the ongoing season of Indian Premier League (IPL 2017) didn’t go down well with fans. After Delhi was knocked out of the tournament despite winning its last match against Gujarat Lions, Chopra took to Twitter to criticise team management and its selection strategy. “You get brilliance & inconsistency from youth. #DD rode on their brilliance but didn’t invest in experience to cover for their inconsistency,” wrote Chopra. Even though the former Indian batsman didn’t take any names, his comments angered the fans of Rahul Dravid who is currently the mentor of the side.

People were quick to remind Chopra that he represented India in just 10 matches and failed to score a single century so has no right to question a legend like Dravid. Despite having a decent start to his career, Chopra failed to live up to the expectations and scored only 437 runs from 10 matches at an average of 23.00.

Here are some Twitter reactions:

Dravid, on the other hand, is also the coach of India A and Under-19 teams. He is believed to be the man who has groomed players like Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson and Karun Nair from a very early age. This year, in the absence of Quinton de Kock and JP Duminy, Delhi Daredevils trusted their young batting line-up with Sanju Samson, Karun Nair, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer featuring in top-4. There were some good individual performances but collectively the batting unit failed to set the stage on fire and DD once again, couldn’t make it to the playoffs.

    The IPL is a stage set for new Indian players to perform. What if they don't depend more on overseas players our youngsters have definitely shown their talent and they are ably groomed under the guidance of Rail David(the wall of Indian Cricket -a fame earned for his consistent efforts).The DD is the only team with Indian dominant players this IPL still they have fared well compared to many of the team's and have clearly managed to beat the big guns. Though at some points they have miserably fell, their rise is also phenomenon they have entertained the most this IPL and expect some worthy performance in future.
