LSG pacer Avesh Khan reprimanded for breaching IPL Code of Conduct

The RCB vs LSG game at M Chinnaswamy Stadium was a dramatic match in IPL history, breaking multiple records and having a change of momentum in every delivery. LSG chose to bowl first, and despite Virat Kohli’s quick 50-run stand, he was eventually dismissed by Amit Mishra. Faf du Plessis smashed the longest six of IPL 2023, and along with Glenn Maxwell, attacked the leg-spin bowlers, setting a massive target of 213 runs for LSG. LSG lost three wickets in the powerplay, but Marcus Stoinis and later Ayush Badoni and Nicholas Pooran led a counter-attack, bringing the game back to a close finish. The game’s momentum shifted when Harshal Patel took two wickets in the final over, but LSG ultimately won with a quick single after a ‘Mankad-miss’ moment.

Before the act – Avesh was in position to make a strike, but he was unable to make contact with the ball, which went straight to the wicket-keeper. Behind the stumps, Karthik stumbled, giving Avesh the chance to take a single and give his team the victory.
