Now due to his poor performance and record as a batsman in the IPL, he is being targeted on Social Media a lot. A meme about his career is becoming quite viral on social media in which his records are shown and mentioned:
“When your passion is to become a commentator but your parents force you to become a cricketer.”
In reply to this meme, the cricketer turned commentators answered, “it’s funny for sure. But If this was indeed the case, I can’t thank my folks enough to push me to play cricket first…fortunate to be in a list of just 296 players who’ve got the chance to represent India in Tests.”
Here is the Tweet:
Apart from this meme, a person made fun of him by tweeting, “Sir how did you get in the squad? I also want to play for KKR”
In reply to which Chopra wrote, ” That’s a good one. Lemme go back in time—since there was no domestic T20 at that time, teams went with List-A records, I think. I averaged 346 that year in List-A for Delhi. If my memory is serving me right…3 unbeaten centuries in 4 or 5 games
Good luck with ur selection”
