‘Punjab Kings will feel the pain too’ – Aakash Chopra on Sam Curran’s poor form in SA20 league

Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra believes Sam Curran’s poor form with bat and ball will not only affect MI Cape Town (MICT) but also his IPL franchise Punjab Kings (PBKS).

PBKS spent a whopping INR 18.5 million at the 2023 IPL auction to make Curran the most expensive player in IPL history. The all-rounder was also player of the tournament at the T20 World Cup 2022. However, he has not really been able to take off in the SA20 league.

In a video on his YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra has this to say about Sam Curran’s form in both batting and bowling:

“Sam Curran hasn’t hit or bowled that well until now. Even though he’s with MICT now, the Punjab Kings will also feel the pain and hope he finds form as they’ve spent so much money on him.”

Aakash Chopra on MICT’s bowling

MICT have some world-class bowlers in their ranks but will now be without the services of Jofra Archer as the speedster was only allowed to play two SA20 games.

The Durban Super Giants absolutely thrashed MICT’s bowling last game and Chopra feels that gave them pause. Speedster Kagiso Rabada could come into play if Archer is unavailable. The former cricketer said:

“The MICT bowlers have been reality checked by the supergiants. Archer will now be gone as he was only allowed to play two games which he already has. So maybe Kagiso Rabada will join the team in his place.”

MI Cape Town squad: Kagiso RabadaDewald Brevis, Rashid Khan, Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, Rassie van der Dussen, Ryan Rickelton, George Linde, Beuran Hendricks, Duan Jansen, Delano Potgieter, Grant Roelofsen, Wesley Marshall, Olly Stone, Waqar Salamkheil, Ziyaad Abharams, Odean Smith , Jofra Archer.
