Ever since his induction into the Indian team on the international stage, Avesh has not looked as effective with the ball as he has in the last couple of IPL seasons. His recent trip to the Caribbean could have ended up being a miserable one, had his heroics not come up in the 4th T20I where he took a couple of wickets on a hard track and won the Man of the Match accolade for his effort.
In the 12 innings that he has bowled so far, Avesh has been very poor in terms of economy as he has bowled just one maiden over so far and to add to that, his economy rate in T20Is is above 8.50 Runs per over. So far, he has managed to pick just 11 wickets in his international T20I career with an average of 31.81 and a strike rate of 22.
