Gautam Gambhir and Aakash Chopra are two of the top Hindi commentators in the cricket world. They have been a part of the Star Sports Hindi commentary panel for quite some time. While both have a ton of knowledge about the game, their predictions have gone wrong many times recently.
Aakash Chopra often makes predictions on his YouTube channel or the pre-match show of Star Sports. Even Gautam Gambhir shares his views and he predicted a final between Australia and New Zealand in T20 WC 2021. Chopra had predicted a final between the England cricket team and the Pakistan cricket team in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Both teams qualified for the semifinals of the T20 World Cup 2021 by topping their respective Super 12 groups.
However, the England cricket team suffered a five-wicket defeat at the hands of the New Zealand cricket team in the first semifinal played at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. On the next night, the Australian cricket team defeated the Pakistan cricket team in the second semifinal hosted by the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Aakash Chopra and Gautam Gambhir’s conversation amuses Twitter
Soon after the results, Aakash Chopra called Gambhir the prediction king while responding to a fan’s tweet.
“Gauti is officially the Prediction King. I’m bending the knee @GautamGambhir.”
Here’s what Gautam replied to Aakash Chopra after his accurate prediction:
“You know the secret @cricketaakash! Have shared it with you!”
The final of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 will happen this Sunday, featuring Australia and New Zealand at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
