“The innings puts even me under such a shame. I have never managed to play in world cup games. Hell! I never managed to score 81 runs and in such an inferior strike rate!”, the author declared in his book.

Comparing parallel between him and Finch, Chopra said, “our names starts similar with Aa and it has a strong message. We simply warn the viewers, it takes time to tell our names. It is not Akash or Aron. It with Aa. It is slow to pronounce. We are slow. Period”, the author proudly claimed his and Aaron’s genius in his new book.

“If you had carefully noticed the title, ‘playing for the blue’, there is no big font or bold letters. You should get clues at every piece about our intent and playing style. This particular innings that Finch had played, I am very proud of. He managed to get 3 quick scoring batsmen OUT to establish his brilliance and the cause of ‘playing for the blue’

India manages to get into controversy, oftentimes, about Padma awards for sports personalities. But, make no mistake about it! Give one to Aaron! He deserves it!”, Aaaaakash Chopra quipped in his epilogue and the book hit the stores worldwide to earn sales apparently much better than ‘Playing It Someone’s Way’.
