Former Indian opener, Aakash Chopra opines that Mumbai Indians (MI) will be making full use of the Australia all-rounder Cameron Green if he bats at number three. Green amassed 41 of 23 balls as MI beat Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the Eliminator of IPL 2023. Speaking on his Youtube channel, Chopra said MI didn’t make full use of Green when he was moved down the order, insisting he is a top-order batter in T20s. Green has scored 422 runs in 15 matches this season, while also hitting his maiden IPL century.

In the latest video on his Youtube Channel, Aakash Chopra said, “Cameron Green scored runs. Another story is that if you play him at No. 3 regularly, he will give you runs. You yourself halved his stature when you moved him down the order. It is not enjoyable when you send him down the order.”

He went on to shower praises on MI’s left-handed middle-order batter Tilak Varma, saying he batted well and is a shining star. Varma has amassed 300 runs in 10 games in IPL 2023, at an average of 42.86, while striking at 153.85.

Explaining the same, Aakash Chopra said, “After that, Tilak Varma was fit and came to bat. He batted extremely well. He is a shining star. Suryakumar Yadav batted for a short while, but he also batted well. So both of them batted well and then Nehal Wadhera came in the end and did a great job.”

Chopra also reserves special praise for MI’s scouting system, saying they know how to create a balance between young and big-name players for their squad. MI beat LSG by 81 runs at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai to move on to the second Qualifier of IPL 2023.

As per the quotes in India Today, Aakash Chopra said, “Whether it is Wadhera, Tilak Varma or Akash Madhwal, this team has shown that they pick big players by spending huge sums – Ishan Kishan at 15.25 crores, Rohit Sharma at 16 crores and Cameron Green at 17.5 crores – but the real team is prepared through scouts. You will have to praise Mumbai, they do very good scouting.”
