Cricketers are followed a lot in the Indian subcontinent. His popularity extends beyond the field. Due to this, they also seem to be getting strange requests and questions. This is the price of popularity that Indian cricketers and others from the subcontinent have to bear. She is also often appreciated and this is reflected in her social media followers and the fanfare she receives. Some of the strange requests/questions they get may sometimes have nothing to do with cricket.
One such question was asked to former Indian cricket team opener Akash Chopra. An ex user asked Aakash Chopra, “Who will win the elections in Pakistan? Do #AakashVani. This is your real test.”
The former Indian cricket team star replied, “It's very simple. Nawaz Sharif.”

Nearly 650,000 security personnel have been deployed across election-bound Pakistan as officials were busy setting up polling stations to enable more than 128.5 million registered voters to cast their ballot in Pakistan's general election on Thursday.
Indian cricketer turned commentator Aakash Chopra had recently said that India could select both all-rounders Shivam Dubey and Hardik Pandya in the squad for the much-awaited T20 World Cup starting in June in the West Indies and the United States. The 46-year-old claimed that Dubey reminds him of former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh as he attacks the bowler in a similar manner. He said that the 30-year-old player should bat lower down the order for India.
“Shivam Ati Sundaram – his strength speaks loudly. I thought he was sent a little earlier in the third match. You could have sent either Sanju Samson or Rinku Singh ahead of him because he is not a grapher, he is a He is an attacker. He reminds me of Yuvi (Yuvraj Singh). So you need to put him a little lower down the order,” Chopra said on his YouTube channel.
The former batsman further said that both Hardik and Dubey should be in the T20 World Cup squad.
“The way he hit sixes in the first two matches, his power was evident. Some people have even said leave Hardik and choose Dubey. I am saying keep both. Shivam Dubey in Is a real contender based on three matches. If he does that, well, it will be icing on the cake in the IPL,” said the former India opener.
