I am always available to bowl the tough overs for my team: Avesh Khan

I am always available to bowl the tough overs for my team: Avesh Khan. Khan took three wickets while surrendering only 25 runs in LSG’s previous match against RR.

Lucknow Super Giants held their nerves in a low-scoring thriller. Defeating Rajasthan Royals by 10 runs at the Sawai Mansingh stadium in Jaipur. Batting first on a tough Jaipur track, the Giants put up a score of 154/7 thanks to an opening partnership of 82 runs.

Rajasthan Royals appeared to be on track to reach the goal easily for the most of the chase, with both openers Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler scoring 40+ runs each to form an 87-run partnership. Marcus Stoinis removed Jaiswal in the 12th over, followed by Sanju Samson and Buttler in the 13th and 14th overs, respectively. From then on, it was a batting collapse. With figures of 3/25 and 2/28, Avesh Khan and Stoinis were the bowlers of choice for Lucknow.

Avesh Khan was the outstanding bowler, successfully defending 18 runs in the penultimate over while also picking up two wickets. He shed some light on his many positions in the Lucknow Super Giants organisation. Avesh Khan stated to JioCinema:  “ If we are bowling first, I get the first or second over and if we are defending. I bowl the crucial overs such as the 4th or 6th over, depending on the situation of the game. I have also told my captain and coaches that you can make me bowl anywhere and I am always available for my team to bowl the tough overs. So, I always try to not think about when I will get the chance to bowl but whenever I get the opportunity. I always aim to get a wicket for the team.”

Inspite of winning the game, Lucknow Super Giants did not have a great start while batting.

They had a slow start at the powerplay including a maiden. IPL expert RP Singh believes KL Rahul is not playing the way he use to. “KL Rahul never used to play like this, he used to always have a good strike rate, take the attack to the opposition and play good shots but here he seemed to be stuck and under pressure. I might be wrong, but he is probably thinking that his form might return after playing a big innings. His form is not bad, he is still playing his shots. He is not being able to find those gaps in his shots, he should take those calculative risks which he is not taking. ”

“He has stopped hitting many of his shots. ” Singh continued. He is considering rotating the strike more and possibly changing his role, but he is not that type of player. When he starts hitting with his bat, he can shift the course of the game in an instant.”
