Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra believes MI Cape Town may have the best foreign combination in T20 franchise cricket.
The team consists of Liam Livingstone, Jofra Archer, Sam Curran and captain Rashid Khan, who are likely to be their top picks to fill the four overseas spots.
Livingstone has blossomed into a T20 superstar over the past 12 months and is more than capable of getting a mid-range job done. Curran and Rashid are not only world-class T20 bowlers, they’re also more than adept at the racquet.
Archer’s return to competitive cricket will keep both Mumbai Indians and MI Cape Town fans on their toes as they eagerly await what the speedster has to offer.
In a video on his YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra has this to say about the MI Cape Town team combination:
“Your choice of four foreigners is pretty straightforward. Play Liam Livingstone in the batting department, then Rashid Khan and Sam Curran, and then Jofra Archer in bowling.
“You don’t get a better combination of four foreigners anywhere.”
Mi Cape Town is the team to beat: Aakash Chopra
Aakash Chopra has no doubt that MI Cape Town is by far the most star-studded team at the inaugural edition of SA20. He believes they have all the bases covered thanks to the presence of stars like Kagiso Rabada and Dewald Brevis alongside the aforementioned overseas players.
“MI Cape Town is the best team in the competition. Liam Livingstone’s availability is still unclear but they have other match winners like Dewald Brevis, Rashid Khan, Sam Curran and Jofra Archer. This is the team to beat.”
MI Cape Town will be involved in the first-ever game of the SA20 league on Tuesday (10 January). They will play the Paarl Royals at Newlands Cricket Ground.
MI Cape Town squad: Kagiso Rabada, Dewald 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.
