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.
But Chopra's biggest assets are his aggressive outlook and the fact that he is a thinking bowler. Everything about his game - from the manner in which he bowls to his penchant for all out attack whenever he has been sent as a pinch hitter - has an attacking ring about it. Moreover, he is always thinking of ways to get a batsman out with his varied bag of tricks. He certainly has proved to be an asset to the one day side and this makes his non selection for even one match in the Carlton & United Series in Australia during the 1999-2000 season all the more baffling. thanks crickinfo,com
