Prashant Chopra (Indian Cricketer) Girlfriend, Weight, Height, Age, Records and More

By Kashif Sheikh

Born in Himachal’s Solan district, Prashant Chopra proudly stands tall as one of Himachal Pradesh’s best batsman ever. Tumbling records day in day out, Prashant Chopra made his way to the top of the ladder with some astonishing batting performances. Known for his stand and deliver style, Chopra has often managed to draw comparisons with one of India’s greatest openers, Virendar Sehwag. Chopra’s style was so impressive that opponent’s captain, Harbhajan Singh, too gave him a standing ovation on reaching a triple century. He now sets his eyes on delivering with the same level of intensity for his franchise, Rajasthan Royals, who bought him for INR 20 Lakh.
