Team India’s net bowler Avesh returned home in T20 World Cup, now he will show his enthusiasm in this tournament


New Delhi:Fast bowler Avesh Khan, associated with the Indian team as a net bowler for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, has returned to India from the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Avesh has given information about returning home by uploading a picture on his social media account. He wrote with the picture, ‘Next stop is Delhi. ‘

It is noteworthy that earlier last week Karan Sharma, Shahbaz Ahmed, Krishnappa Gautam and Venkatesh Iyer returned to India from UAE to represent their respective states in the upcoming Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy tournament starting November 4. These players were also included in the Indian team as net bowlers for the T20 World Cup and were playing their part in the team’s preparations.

24-year-old Avesh Khan performed brilliantly in the IPL 2021 season played in UAE. He took 24 wickets in 16 matches at an average of 18.75. Taking three wickets for 13 runs was his best performance. He was the second highest wicket-taker in the league after Harshal Patel. It was only after his impressive performance in the IPL that he was asked to stay in the UAE and was selected as a net bowler to prepare for the Indian team.

Avesh also went to England as a standby with the Test team but had to return mid-tour due to a fractured finger during India’s warm-up match against the combined county team.

Trying to bowl 10-12 yorkers

One of the most successful players of this season of IPL, this Indore fast bowler had said in an interview given to UAE, ‘I definitely bowl 10-12 yorkers while practicing. A yorker is a ball that mastery comes from practice. I put the ball with a bottle or shoes and if the ball hits it, then my confidence increases and perfection comes.

He said, “Yorker is a wicket-taking ball. It is important to put it under pressure because it is the only ball that can avoid getting hit. The new batsman does not expect that he will get a yorker as soon as he comes but I bowl.

Avesh had recently said in a conversation with Cricinfo, ‘The Indian Premier League (IPL) is like a door for those who dream of playing for India. Playing every single match this season has given me confidence. Every year I used to prepare that I would get a chance from the first match itself, but unfortunately it never happened. In the last two years, I got only one match each. Kagiso Rabada and Enrique Nortje were not available for the first two matches this season, while the Ishant brothers were not fit. At that time Rishabh Pant showed faith in me. My target was that if I get a chance from the first match, I will grab it with both hands and give a performance that will help the team win.‘(talk)
