Former Indian opener Aakash Chopra heaps Marcus Stoinis with praises due to his all-rounder performance for his side in the IPL 2020 Qualifier 2 match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

In a YouTube video shared on his channel, Aakash Chopra said that the Australian all-rounder would have even won the US presidential election on the day had he taken part in it.

Aakash Chopra choosed Marcus Stoinis as one of the important player in Delhi Capitals (DC) Qualifier 2 match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) because of his game changing abilities.

“I am going with Marcus Stoinis. He really hit hard gave a brilliant start. Because it is important who can play with freedom in knockout encounters. A lot of teams are not able to play, they get timid and become cautious and conservative” said Aakash Chopra.

He also pointed that Marcus Stoinis was the first player to charge attack on the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) bowlers.

“But Marcus Stoinis said he will play open-mindedly and started to hit right from the beginning and set a good tone foe the team. In fact, Shikhar Dhawan had started hitting later, Stoinis had started earlier”, added Aakash Chopra.

Aakash Chopra also notice that Marcus Stoinis did not limit himself with batting, but also did well by taking 3 wickets. He also believe that Marcus Stoinis dismissal of Kane Williamson was the turning point of the match.

“Marcus Stoinis didn’t stop here. He came and took two wickets in an over and after that the wickets of Kane Williamson. So three wickets to his credit, runs to his name and he took a catch as well. The match was hanging the balance with the way Kane Williamson was batting. He was taking the game away from Delhi but Stoinis bowled a slightly wide ball and Williamson played an inside out shot to be caught by Kagiso Rabada. That was the turning point and Marcus Stoinis was once again instrumental.”

Aakash Chopra signed off by speaking in a light-hearted manner that the Delhi Capitals (DC) all-rounder could have even won the US presidential election. “What else was left to be done. I am saying, if he had been made to stand in the US presidential election, he would have won that as well with the sort of the day he had. Jokes apart he has been absolutely outstanding”. said Aakash Chopra.

Marcus Stoinis scored a quickfire 38 off 27 balls in an 86-run partnership for the first wicket with Shikhar Dhawan.
