Sai Sudarshan has scored a century against Pakistan.
Sudarshan’s wicket became controversial in the final.
New Delhi. For the future of the Indian team, the selectors have kept an eye on many players. Some players took full advantage of this in IPL 2023. But now youths have a golden chance to attract the attention of the selectors even outside IPL. We are talking about the Asian Games, where Team India will fight for the Gold Medal. For this, the Indian team has been announced. The Ajit Agkar-led selection panel has found a place for a bowler who has lost the confidence of Indian captain Rohit Sharma with his performance.
Here we are talking about Indian fast bowler Avesh Khan, who is not one to give up. Avesh Khan is such a bowler whose career has been full of struggles. His father was a paan seller, but Avesh Khan changed his fortunes. In IPL 2022, Lucknow Super Giants had spent a huge amount of 10 crores on Avesh. That year he played 13 matches, in which he took 18 wickets and performed well. But this time he could not leave any special mark.
Got a chance to debut in Team India
After a great performance in IPL 2022, Avesh Khan got a chance to debut. But he could not impress the captain. Avesh Khan played 5 ODIs in which he managed to take just 3 wickets. At the same time, he got only 13 wickets in 15 T20 matches. After this, when the turn of IPL 2023 came, Avesh did not live up to the expectations. He took only 8 wickets in 9 matches. As a result, he went away from the radar of the selectors. But he has been included in the team for the Asian Games, if Avesh performs well here, he can once again open his doors for Team India.
India’s squad for Asian Games
Rituraj Gaikwad (Captain), Mukesh Kumar, Shivam Mavi, Shivam Dubey, Prabhsimran Singh (wicketkeeper), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rahul Tripathi, Tilak Verma, Rinku Singh, Jitesh Sharma (wicketkeeper), Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh.
