Chopra believes that Sachin Tendulkar will be his first-choice selection in all formats. He praised the ‘Master Blaster’ for his steady efforts over the past two decades. Shane Watson and Rohit Sharma were then chosen for their contributions to CSK and MI, respectively. In the batting department, Chopra chose Suresh Raina, Michael Hussey, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni, and Ravindra Jadeja. With Dhoni as the team’s captain.

Muttiah Muralitharan, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah, and Ravichandran Ashwin were among the bowlers he picked.

“For me, Master Blaster [Sachin Tendulkar] across all the formats and eras is best. Then Watson and Rohit, due to their contributions to help their respective teams to win the matches.”

One of the Reasons for MI and CSK’s Success in the IPL is Their Ability to Keep Their Core Players: Nikhil Chopra

Chopra believes that due to his versatility and batting ability, former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh can perfectly fill the shoes of Jadeja and Ashwin. He also chose Kieron Pollard to come in as a sub for any injured players, as he has helped MI win many games. Finally, Chopra believes that one of the reasons for MI and CSK’s success in the IPL is their ability to keep their core players season after season.

“I think Harbhajan Singh can come in place of Jadeja or Ashwin. This is due to his variations, which is unbelievable as a bowler. If there is an injury concern, Kieron Pollard may come into my side due to his proven performances to win the games for MI. Over these years, both the franchises have not changed their core team. Which is one of the reasons for their success.”

Chopra said

Nikhil Chopra’s all-time CSK-MI combined XI: Sachin Tendulkar, Shane Watson, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Michael Hussey. Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Muttiah Muralitharan, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah, and Ravichandran Ashwin (12th man)

On Thursday, Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings by five wickets in an Indian Premier League match. CSK were sent into bat and were bowled out for 97 in 16 overs at the Wankhede Stadium, after losing wickets at regular intervals. Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the captain, led the way with an unbeaten 36 from 33 balls.
