Chopra made a very interesting choice by picking David Warner as the best batsman over Kohli and Raina. Explaining his decision Chopra said that Warner has represented multiple franchises over the years and also he is a foreigner so it is difficult for him to adjust than other Indian batsmen. Despite all this, the left-handed southpaw is on-par with Kohli and Raina in the IPL so he deserved to be ranked as the best.
