Avesh Khan Ruled Out Of The Remainder Of The Tournament, Deepak Chahar Added To Main Squad – Reports


The 25-year-old Madhya Pradesh right-arm pacer Avesh Khan has been ruled out of the remainder of the ongoing Asia Cup 2022, which is the 15th edition of the multi-nation tournament, due to illness, as per a PTI report.

India National Cricket Team speedster Avesh has failed to impress with the bowl in the ongoing Asia Cup. He played two games for India in the group stage round and was very expensive. In the match against Pakistan, he bowled 2 overs, conceded 19 runs and picked up the wicket of Fakhar Zaman. In India’s second game against Hong Kong, the pacer gave away 53 runs in his 4-over quota and bagged just 1 wicket.

At a pre-match press conference ahead of the India-Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 stage clash, Dravid talked about Avesh Khan and said:

Avesh has just been feeling a little bit unwell, just been under the weather and a bit of fever and stuff. We have got a doctor who is managing him. He is not at practice today, hopefully, it is not too serious and he is okay for tomorrow, at least the later part of the tournament.”

Also, Avesh was ruled out of the high-profile Asia Cup 2022 game against Pakistan National Cricket Team, where India faced a 5-wicket defeat.

On Tuesday, September 6, PTI reported that Avesh will no longer be able to participate in the marquee tournament due to illness. It was further stated that the right-arm medium-pacer Deepak Chahar, who was one of the stand-by players for the Asia Cup, has been included in the main squad.

“Some @bcci team news. Pacer @Avesh_6 is out of #AsiaCupT20 with fever and sinus related issues. So @deepak_chahar9 comes in squad of 15. #IndianCricketTeam,” Kushan Shankar of PTI tweeted.

“India pacer Avesh Khan out of remainder of Asia Cup due to illness, Deepak Chahar drafted in,” PTI tweeted.

Overall, Avesh has played 15 T20Is for India National Cricket Team and has bagged 13 wickets at an average of 32.46, an economy of 9.10 and a strike rate of 21.3.
