IPL 2021 – Delhi Capitals Avesh Khan: Young Delhi Capitals (DC) fast bowler Avesh Khan had a dream start to Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. The 24-year-old is part of one of the most deadly bowling attack in IPL. Delhi boast a pace battery of Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Chris Woakes and Umesh Yadav. During interaction with DC TV, Avesh claimed: “Yeah obviously because, Rabada, who won the purple cap last year, when he comes he’ll bring a lot of experience with him in death bowling. Nortje, who had bowled the fastest ball in IPL last year, and Ishant will also come in who has a lot of experience. Umesh also is bowling well. So the competition in the fast bowling is very good and I feel the fast bowling attack that we have is the best in IPL”.
He made the ball do talking and rose to the occasion 💙

IPL 2021: Delhi Capitals Avesh Khan elated with MS Dhoni’s wicket
Avesh shared his excitement of getting the prized wicket of CSK skipper MS Dhoni during their IPL 2021 campaign opener at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday. Dhoni who had come out to bat at number seven could only last for two deliveries before getting back to the pavilion for a duck.
“Three years ago Mahi bhai’s catch was dropped. Mahi bhai’s wicket is my dream wicket and now three years later I’ve fulfilled that dream and I’m very happy about it. It’s also that he hasn’t played cricket in a while, he hasn’t been playing matches, so our plan was to initially maintain pressure on him, and I got the wicket because of the pressure” said Khan while speaking on the official website of Delhi Capitals.
Avesh finished his spell with 2/23 at an economy rate of 5.75.
