Aakash Chopra might not have set the stage on fire like some of his former Team India mates during his playing days, but there was no dearth of talent when it came to his batting. Long after his retirement, Chopra's know-how of the game and vast experience have allowed him to become one of the most respected voices in the sport.
Whether it's about reading the game, highlighting key aspects of a match or identifying young talents, the 42-year-old has carved his own niche as one of the most sought-after cricket pundits in the modern era of the sport.

Currently focussed on giving his insights on the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Chopra made quite an interesting discovery and shared it on social media.
The former Indian batsman shared a video of a young kid who was seen hammering the ball like a pro. Taking to Instagram, Chopra seemed to be in awe of the batting talents of the young left-hander who was clobbering the ball with unbelievable technique.
"How good is this young kid!!!" he captioned the video.View this post on InstagramHow good is this young kid!!! #talented #aakashvani #feelitreelit #feelkaroA post shared by (@cricketaakash)
As soon as Chopra shared the video, it became an instant hit with fans who showered praise on the youngster. While some lauded the young gun for serious bat swing, others couldn't believe the brilliant timing that was on showcase.
There were also a few comparisons with Kings XI Punjab's Chris Gayle, Delhi Capitals' Rishabh Pant and even six-hitting Yuvraj Singh.
