The worst performing team in Indian Premier League 2023 is Delhi Capitals. The Delhi team became the first team to exit the season. Despite having good players, the team could not make a comeback in the tournament. Meanwhile, former Indian team opener and commentator Akash Chopra has raised many questions against the Delhi team. He said that the Delhi team could not utilize the in-form Akshar Patel properly. According to Chopra, if the same Akshar Patel had been in the MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings team, he might have been the player of the season.
IPL 2023 has not been a good season for Delhi Capitals. The team lost most of the matches and settled for ninth place in the points table. However, Axar Patel gave a tremendous performance. He made his important contribution both in the ball and bat department.
At times it seemed that the Delhi team might not have been able to take full advantage of Akshar. Because, he got less opportunities. According to Aakash Chopra, Akshara has not been used well.
‘If Dhoni’s team, Akshar Patel would have been the best player of IPL 2023’
Akash Chopra made a big comment about Akshar Patel while speaking on Jio Cinema. He said that, “The first player that comes to my mind, who has performed tremendously, should be on the list of most valuable players. Imagine if this player was in MS Dhoni’s team, probably the best player of the tournament and it is Akshar Patel. He didn’t get much opportunity to bat.”
Speaking further, he said, “You wonder who was making these decisions. You have David Warner as the captain. Additionally in the dugout are legends like Ricky Ponting, Sourav Ganguly, Shane Watson, James Hopes, Ajit Agarkar and Praveen Amre. Even with such a big think tank you couldn’t figure out how to get the best out of your best player.”

Talking about Akshar Patel’s performance in the IPL 2023 season, he has scored 283 runs at an average of 28.30 in 14 matches. It also included 1 half-century.
