Avesh Khan is back with a bang! The Indore-born pacer is giving a lot of trouble to the Sri Lankan team in the third and final T20I of the series.

At the end of 9 overs, Sri Lanka is batting at 34/4. Avesh Khan bowled a three-over spell and just conceded four runs, including a maiden over, by taking two crucial wickets.

Siraj started India’s bowling and took the massive wicket of Danushka Gunathilaka in the first over. Siraj has just given nine runs in 3 overs and has taken a crucial wicket.

Bishnoi also got the breakthrough of Janith Liyanage in his first over.

Sri Lanka is in severe trouble. At a high-scoring pitch of Dharamshala, it would be difficult for Sri Lanka to reach a total of 150 if Dinesh Chandimal and Captain Dasun Shanaka don’t build a good partnership here.

In IPL Auction 2022, Avesh Khan became the most expensive uncapped player in the history of IPL. The new franchise Lucknow Super Giants roped in the pacer for INR 10 crore. Avesh made his T20 debut on 20th February against West Indies.

Siraj, Avesh, and Bishnoi were given a chance in this game in place of Bumrah, Bhuvi, and Chahal. The trio has done a fantastic job for India in this game so far, and it would be interesting to see would these youngsters be able to finish their spell pleasingly.
