Profile

He has got the tag of a one day specialist and is one of the first choices as a spinner in limited overs cricket. But watching Nikhil Chopra bowl one gets the distinct feeling that given a chance, he can be a success in the longer game too. For he has all the attributes of a good off spinner. He maintains good control over line and length, gives the ball plenty of air, turns the ball a fair deal and has a telling faster delivery.
