The newly debuted pacer Avesh Khan stated how the Indian Men’s Team Management has backed him throughout. Avesh Khan wasn’t impressive at all in the series against West Indies. Despite of that, as Avesh said, the coach and skipper supported him.

Avesh Khan presented himself as India’s standout bowler in Lauderhill, in the fourth Twenty20. The bowler bagged Brandon King’s (13) wicket previously. He then dismissed Devon Thomas (1). Avesh thus bagged two wickets giving 17 runs, and took the player of the match crown. . 6th August also saw Arshdeep Singh as a shining example. He grabbed 3 wickets by giving 12 runs. Ravi Bishnoi and Axar Patel also helped India as all West Indian 11 went back to pavillion within 19.1 over scoring 132 runs.

In the post match interview, Avesh said,

“I feel really good because I didn’t do well In the last two games. I just focused on my stands today, bowling the hard lines. My coaches and my captain told me that they were backing me. They told me to bounce back and back to me a lot will stop and focusing on the next match that is left now.”

Avesh even admitted the surface to behave a bit tough for the batters. The ball stopping a bit. Regarding that, Avesh said,

“The ball was stopping a bit in the wicket and so I was just mixing my slower deliveries with the hard lengths, which gave me the results. This ground feels like India only, it feels like home. Happy that the crowd came to see us.”

Anyone can have one or two bad games, but we want to keep his skills in mind: Rohit Sharma on Avesh Khan

The Indian skipper Rohit Sharma was in all praise for both his batters and bowler. He specifically mentioned Avesh for the effort he gave on the field. Rohit said,

“The batters were really smart and the bowlers bowled in pairs to get wickets. It put the brakes on their scoring. We do understand Avesh’s talents. Anyone can have one or two bad games, but we want to keep his skills in mind. We want to give boys enough game time in the middle. He used the conditions and his height really well, which was great to see.”

Apart from Avesh and co., the batters did played their role too. Among them, Rishabh Pant posed the highest individual score (41 of 31). Captain Sharma smashed 16 balls 33. Axar Patel stayed not out hitting 20 runs of just 8 balls.
