Aakash Chopra on IPL 2021 Orange Cap contenders

Aakash Chopra has recently predicted the player who can win the orange cap in the IPL 2021. During the QNA session on his Youtube, he is seen predicting Virat Kohli to be scoring more than 600 runs in this season. While the next contenders are Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul.


“Virat Kohli is going to be the opener. Last time he started off slowly, still, he made runs which is expected from him, like expectations are always there that he will score 400 plus runs, there he reaches easily but this time he will reach up to 600-700 runs. I think he will play very big innings and might also win the highest run-scorer. There will be two more contenders, one will be Rishabh Pant, and the second will be KL Rahul, maybe David Warner as well. There will be a tough fight between them but I think Virat Kohli might just end up winning by the league stage. If his team does not qualify for the playoffs then it is possible that he might lose.” Aakash Chopra said on his Youtube channel.
