IPL 2021: Avesh khan receives appreciation from Twitter as he picks up Virat
Avesh Khan is now the second leading wicket-taker in IPL after Harshal Patel
The 24-year old Delhi Capital pacer Avesh Khan is now the second leading wicket-taker in IPL after RCB’s Harshal Patel. He has picked up 12 wickets now in 6 matches. Avesh picked up the wicket of RCB’s Captain Virat Kohli in match number 22 of IPL 2021.
Avesh picked up Indian former Captain MS Dhoni’s wicket in his first match of the season, that too for a duck. Later in the 22nd match of the season, he picked up Virat’s wicket as he bowled him. He is now 5 wickets behind Harshal Patel who is having a dream season with 17 wickets in 6 matches.
Twitter reacted to Kohli’s wicket and also appreciated the consistency of bowling by Avesh. Here is a glimpse of what Twitter has to say.
What a spell by Avesh Khan, 1/24 in his 4 overs against a solid RCB batting unit. He picked the wicket of Kohli. Excellent bowling as well in the death overs, one of the finest talent in India currently.

Famous Commentator Harsha Bhogle also shared his views on the bowler.
Very impressed with Avesh Khan. Has the speed which is essential, bowls a good slower ball and a good yorker. Keep an eye on him.
