IPL 2020 has ended successfully, but talks about it with high spirits are still going on. Former Indian opener and commentator Akash Chopra is back with his analysis again, and this time, RCB’s Aaron Finch is caught under his scanner. Chopra believes that Australian white-ball captain Finch became a major disappointment for RCB in the recently concluded edition of the IPL. Chopra did this exercise during the performance review Virat Kohli And its people with RCB.

Finch was roped in by the Bangalore franchise to boost his top-order performance and take some responsibility off the shoulders of Kohli and AB de Villiers. However, the reverse happened with the Swashbuck opener as he failed to achieve anything for the team on all 11 occasions. He failed to rise to the occasion before eventually being eliminated from his 11 set-up play. Chopra also said that Moin Ali also did not get many opportunities.

Aaron Finch gets full chance to bat: Akash Chopra

Aaron Finch was the biggest disappointment for RCB this season. They had placed heavy bets on him and stayed with him for a long time. You expect Finch to bump into them. He got full opportunities to bat. Therefore, no one can say that he played in this team and he was not given opportunities. You could say that for Moin Ali, that he was in and out of the team, but Aaron Finch played all the matches, I mean he played 10–12 matches initially, “Chopra posted on his Facebook page Said in a video.

Chopra said that RCB needs someone Quinton de coc Mumbai Indians for doing the right thing. He also tried Josh Phillips, but it also did not work wonders for the team. If she would have done some good work with Devadatta Padikkal, RCB could have done really well in the playoffs.

Chopra said, “Imagine if Devadatta Padikkal was playing well from one side and Aaron Finch was playing well, the pressure and responsibility would have been less on Virat and AB de Villiers.”
