Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra is one of the top cricket analysts of the modern day cricket. The former cricketer has been frequently been heard in the commentary box in the recent times giving his insights on the game. Also, he ensures that he stays connected with the fans on the social media. He keeps on sharing updates on any major event that takes place in the cricketing world.

Currently, team Pakistan is in Zimbabwe where they are demolishing the hosts big time. Certainly, the way they have dominated the Zimbabwean side speaks volumes about the brand of cricket they are playing. Many might bat for the hosts saying they have a second string side on the field. However, it will only be unfair to take any credit away from the Men in Green for their stellar show.

After team Pakistan posted a mammoth total of 364/4 in the final ODI of the tour, Aakash Chopra looked a little concerned about the plight of cricket in Zimbabwe. He took to micro blogging site Twitter to express his concerns about the same. In his tweet, he remarked that the runs scored against a weak opposition should be evaluated on different terms as against the runs scored against a top side.

Well, his tweet did not go down well with the fans. The Pakistani fans felt offended with the tweet and thought that Aakash Chopra was trying to demean the efforts of the Men in Green. They lashed out at the former cricketer with their tweets.

In other news, Aakash has not been very critical about the performances of the Pakistani team. After the fourth ODI of the series, he had taken to Twitter to laud the efforts of Fakhar Zaman. Fakhar Zaman had hit a brilliant double ton in the game. In that game, Zaman’s unbeaten 210 had helped Pakistan register their highest ever ODI score.
