Talented pacer Avesh Khan has said that Shubman Gill is a bowlers’ captain as he gives them full freedom and comes up with his plans
whenever needed. The right-arm speedster also credited the Indian skipper for helping him get a couple of wickets in the ongoing T20I series
against Zimbabwe as well. However, Gill top-scored with a 49-ball 66 as India set Zimbabwe a 183-run target in the third T20I in Harare on Wednesday, July 10.

“Shubman Gill is a bowlers’ captain. He gives a lot of freedom to the bowlers. He gives them a chance to set their own fields. He always backs you if you are executing your plans,” he responded.”If things go slightly awry and you get hit, he brings his own plan and tells you what needs to be done. That always helps a lot. He has contributed to me getting one or two wickets. Whenever I talk to the captain, I tell him that I have no preferences about when to bowl, that he can make me bowl anytime and I am always ready. I always bowl with the attitude to pick up wickets for the team,” he shared.

Meanwhile, Avesh Khan has picked up six wickets which came at an economy rate of 7.54 in the first three T20Is. His best spell 3/15 came in India’s 100-run win in the second game. In the same interview, Avesh Khan also opined on Ravi Bishnoi’s catch off his bowling.

“It was an excellent catch. He always fields well. You would have seen in the IPL and international cricket that he always takes such catches. He always works a lot on his fielding,” he replied.”He is extremely hard-working when it comes to fielding. He bats and bowls in any case but he wants to take extraordinary catches as a fielder and he showed that by doing it,” Avesh Khan concluded.
