"He has a big heart to bowl difficult overs" - Gautam Gambhir louds Indian young pacer
The Indian Premier League (IPL) should not be Avesh Khan's sole ambition, according to Gautam Gambhir. He went on to say that the pacer for the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) can perform well in all three formats of the game. On Thursday, Avesh went wicketless in the opening T20I against South Africa, as Team India failed to defend a 212-run mark. However, his four-over performance did not come at a high price, as he just gave up 35 runs in a high scoring chase.
Gambhir was asked about his experience working with Avesh in IPL 2022 during a conversation on Star Sports. This bowler, according to the LSG mentor, has a lot of quality, pace, and a big heart to bowl the difficult overs. But I'll be hoping to watch him progress in each encounter. He is a young bowler, and his primary goal should not be the IPL; the T20 World Cup is approaching.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Harshal Patel as everyone knows has walked into the playing 11. But there was debate on whether who should get the spot of that third bowler. But Rahul Dravid and the management backed young Avesh khan over Umran Malik, who was heavily expected by everyone all around the world.
Gautam Gambhir also said that Avesh Khan has the capability to represent Team India in all the formats. He also said that he has the right attitude needed for a fast bowler and also he is very young.
Coming to the match result, South Africa made a mockery of India's bowling attack in the opening T20 at Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi on Thursday, chasing down their greatest ever run-chase and racing to a seven-wicket win. David Miller and Rassie Van Der Dussen partnership of unbeaten 131 runs off just 63 balls take Proteas home. India will look to bounce back in the second T20 International at Cuttack on June 12.
