Avesh Khan has played for India in ODIs and T20s.
The fast bowler will fight hard for his Test debut.
New Delhi. The Indian team remained just one step away from the trophy in the World Test Championship Final (WTC Final). After which the team is in the process of starting the third season afresh. This season can prove to be a golden chance for many players. One of which is also the name of India’s fast bowler Avesh Khan. The young pacer has made his debut in T20 and ODIs but he has not played for the country with the red ball. Now Avesh has made the World Test Championship a target for his Test debut.
The young bowler shared his views on playing with the red ball in an interview with News18. He said, ‘I want to be a complete bowler, I don’t want to be a white or red ball bowler. I want to play all three formats for India and always do well for the country. My effort has always been to take maximum wickets. I enjoy bowling with the red ball because it swings and it is fun to test the batsman initially and then you can bowl long spells. Even in the last Ranji Trophy season, I was bowling 18-20 overs every day.
What did Avesh say about the selection?
Avesh Khan told about the conversation with the selectors, ‘I am always in touch with the people in NCA who manage our workload throughout the season. Whenever I met the selectors, they used to say ‘You are doing well’. Whenever he used to come for matches, he used to say ‘you are almost here and keep doing well’. I get inspired by those words because when the selectors keep an eye on you, it gives more confidence in your game.
How will Avesh enter the team?
Avesh Khan will focus on his form in Duleep Trophy for entry in Team India. He said, ‘I will try to give my best in whatever is in my hands. The selection process is not in my hands but performing well with the ball is in my hands. I have already started preparing for Duleep Trophy as I want to do well for myself and help my team win matches there. If you win matches for your team, it will help you too. If I make the team win the match, then the name is enough.
