Ex-Cricketer Aakash Chopra Predicts WPL Auction Stars (Aakash Chopra makes a bombshell prediction):

Speaking to Hindustan Times, former India cricketer Aakash Chopra, who is also JioCinema’s WPL expert, analyzed the upcoming auction and picked two players who could trigger a mega-bidding war. “I am going with Chamari Athapaththu and Deandra Dottin. Between the two, because they are multi-dimensional players. There is a unique thing actually in women’s cricket. It is not something that we see very often in men’s cricket, which is the multi-dimensional cricketing skills. I think all women are multi-taskers and most men are very uni-dimensional. So, these two,” he said.

Sri Lankan captain Athapaththu was left unpicked in the auction last year, which left plenty of fans and experts shocked. Meanwhile, Dottin picked by Gujarat Giants for ₹60 lakh, after her bidding began at ₹50 lakh. But she missed the entire season after getting ruled out due to controversial circumstances.

“This whole tournament is litter of some great all-rounders and these two missed out in action last year and they will add value. I mean Deandra Dottin can strike the ball and so can ChaChamari Athapaththu, to be honest,” he said. Taking to Instagram, she posted a story, where she posted a screenshot of the report and denied that she was medically unfit. She wrote, “Get well soon from what if I may ask?”

Deandra Dottin’s Release: Implications for Gujarat

Speaking on Dottin’s release from Gujarat, he said, “I think they got a replacement for her at that point of time if I remember correctly. So, I think we didn’t hear the full story of what happened there and I am not going to speculate either. But now she is back in the auction.”Gujarat, to be fair, their auction strategy was flawed to begin with when we saw their team last year. It was just there for everyone to see that we were not going to get it right.

So they were the only franchise that didn’t target a key Indian player and so now they have to change strategy and figure out a way which is never easy in the smaller auction. I don’t know why they let her go, but given a choice, they would want her back, because they have released Kim Garth and Annabel Sutherland. Both are like a medium-pace all-rounder category, which Deandra Dottin does the job as well, goes around the stumps, bowls wide and she is very, very experienced. You would want her to be in the action for sure,” he further added.
