The veteran Indian spinner, India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has predicted that there are certain chances of a bidding war for pacer Avesh Khan in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 mega auction for the upcoming season scheduled on February 12 and 13. Avesh Khan was the highest wicket-taker for the Delhi Capitals (DC) in the last season with 24 wickets from 16 matches with a bowling average of 18.75.
IPL 2022 will be an exciting season with the addition of two new franchises. The teams will be looking to build their teams with new dynamics in the upcoming auction and form the core for the next 2 to 3 seasons. Avesh Khan has set IPL on fire with his performance since last season. Avesh had joined Delhi Capitals for INR 70 Lakhs a couple of years ago.
Avesh Khan was the second-highest wicket-taker in the tournament with 24 wickets from 16 fixtures with a bowling average of 18.75. Now, he has set his base price at INR 20 Lakh. India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is of the opinion that there will definitely be a bidding war for Avesh in the upcoming auction between franchises.
In the latest video on his Youtube channel, Ravichandran Ashwin said, “There is definitely going to be a bidding war for Avesh Khan. No doubt about that. Guarantee. Just like how Vijay Mallya fought for me with CSK in 2010, I can picture a Parth Jindal or a Kiran Rao fighting it out for Avesh Khan this year. With whom will they fight? Well, that might be any team.”
Avesh Khan made his IPL debut for Delhi Capitals in 2017 but played just a single game. The player became a regular member of Delhi in 2021 and impressed everyone with his performance.
