Former Indian cricketer and commentator Aakash Chopra is very active on social media. He recently tweeted about IPL sides that have not retained captains and also suggested some options which included Gautam Gambhir, Shikhar Dhawan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ajinkya Rahane and even Manish Pandey.

Manoj Tiwary who recently led Bengal Ranji team to semi finals commented on the post reminding Chopra about his T20 captaincy record. Tiwary played for the Rising Pune Supergiant in the last IPL season. He was in good form in the tournament. With Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings making comeback in IPL, Tiwary does not have backing of any franchise as of now.

Soon after Chopra tweeted about adding Tiwary s name to the list replying to his comment. Chopra also asked Tiwary if he was doing well to which Tiwary replied saying he is doing well and he loves his show for his insights.

The IPL auctions will be held on January 27 and 28.
