Mumbai: Former India cricketer Aakash Chopra makes a living for himself as a broadcaster. And while he regularly does offer his analytical opinion on national television, Chopra is also heavily active on social media platforms.
As India took on South Africa in the 2nd Test of the Test Series in Centurion, the cricket commentator expressed his opinion about the wicket at Pretoria. With the wicket initially slowing down and offering less bounce and pace, South Africa pushed India on the back foot in the 1st innings with crucial knocks from Aiden Markram and Hashim Amla. And Chopra went on to add that by the look it, the wicket might be a good track for batsmen.
“We’ve got an Indian pitch in Centurion. But it’s a good first-day Indian pitch...which means, don’t be surprised if SA piles a mountain of runs,” he wrote on Twitter.

However, as Virat Kohli’s men struggled to pick up wickets midway during the innings, a Pakistan fan replied to Aakash Chopra’s tweet in an attempt to troll India indirectly stating South Africa would go on to win the match and henceforth, the series.
