Aakaash Chopra hailed team mentor Gautam Gambhir and compared his brain to that of fictional cartoon character ‘Chacha Choudhary’.

Former Indian cricket team opener Aakash Chopra was all praise for Lucknow Super Giants’ tactic against Delhi Capitals as they pulled off a last-over victory on Thursday. Chopra hailed team mentor Gautam Gambhir and compared his brain to that of fictional cartoon character ‘Chacha Choudhary’.

"Gautam Gambhir's brain is like Chacha Chaudhary, it runs very fast. He sends Krunal Pandya up the order at times and Badoni at other times, sometimes Hooda and here he dropped Pandey Ji (Manish Pandey). We had discussed this, that you should drop Pandey Ji and make your bowling stronger, play Krishnappa Gowtham because the opposing team has a lot of lefties," Chopra said on his YouTube channel.
