Former India cricketers Aakash Chopra and Venkatesh Prasad have been embroiled in a rather unpleasant dispute over KL Rahul. It all started when Chopra questioned Prasad’s motive of targeting a player in the middle of a series. In response, Prasad dug out an 11-year-old tweet that Chopra had once shared to prove his point. In the tweet, Chopra had taken a shot at Rohit Sharma for being given repeated chances but not Ajinkya Rahane. Prasad then accused Chopra of misquoting him and stated that he had no agenda against any player. He further highlighted the difference of opinion is fine but calling contrary views as personal agenda is not. Lastly, Prasad respectfully disagreed with Chopra’s views that his tweet could have caused the Indian team distraction during a Test series.
