Profile

An opener in the classical mould, Aakash Chopra has a technique and temperament perfectly suited to occupation of the crease and seeing the shine off the leather. Those attributes came handy for him, and for India, just when they were hunting desperately for a pair of good openers. After a right-knee injury had laid him low at the end of 2002-03, Chopra started the new season with a sound batting display in the two-Test series at home against New Zealand. That earned him a ticket to Australia, where he enhanced his reputation further by providing solid starts in partnership with Virender Sehwag, his Delhi team-mate.
