Aakash Chopra Made Fun Of Himself After Watching How Brett Lee's Yorker Bowled Him Out

Aakash Chopra, the former cricketer, was not so famous in his cricketing days as much as he is at the present time because of his Hindi commentary. He has garnered a huge fan base as audiences are in love with his unique style of Hindi commentary and in the times of the coronavirus pandemic, he made it a point to keep in touch with his fans through social media networks.

Recently, Aakash Chopra shared a video and trolled himself for getting out on a superb delivery bowled by former Australian pacer Brett Lee. The video was from the famous 2004 Sydney test match which was played between India and Australia. The visitors posted a huge total of 705/7 in the first innings with the help of Sachin Tendulkar's 241and VVS Laxman's 178. The hosts were able to score only 474 in the first innings as Anil Kumble, the Indian leg-spinner, went on a rampage and took 8 wickets in Australia's first innings.

In the second innings, India declared their innings at 211 giving a target of 442 to the Australians but the hosts scored 357/6 before the match got drawn. The four test match series ended in a tie with 1-1 and while this test match is being remembered by cricket fans mostly for Sachin's 241, Aakash has another reason to remember it.

In that match, Aakash was bowled out by Brett Lee by a beautiful Yorker and he shared the same delivery with caption, 'I've seen this a thousand times…played it in my head same number of times too. Unfortunately, for the exact same result.  @BrettLee_58, why waste such a good delivery on me?? Should've saved it for @sachin_rt….I got out, he walked in and we know what happened next. 241*'

Here is the tweet:

Well, that was quite a Yorker, what do you say?
