In the ongoing Ranji season, Avesh has taken 36 wickets in seven matches, at an economy of 3.05 and at an average of 17.08.

“Twice I was ruled out because I was not feeling well.” - Avesh Khan

Now, while talking to Indian Express, Avesh Khan has revealed that he wants to make a comeback in the longest format of the game for team India. He said: “Twice I was ruled out because I was not feeling well. People might judge that on a few occasions I went expensive but in today’s cricket 6 out of ten times bowlers have a bad day. I’m not complaining or giving excuses but that’s the truth. Now I have forgotten everything; instead I’m living in the present. When selection happens it will happen. Performing is in my hand and selection is not. So I have stopped thinking about it.”


Regarding Madhya Pradesh’s performance in the quarter-final, Avesh Khan said: “We had a long session on the third day and Pandit sir was clear that if we want to play like a champion team (MP are defending champions) then we need to get them out within 100 runs so that batsmen get a chance to score at least 250 runs. To prove that we are indeed a champion team, we wanted to do it somehow; luckily it went as we planned.”
