“The IPL still has not found Akash Deep. He is the most powerful hitter in the league. With eight sixes, he had a fifty. He is unaware of his own capabilities. He will need a couple more variations as a bowler in the T20 format. If you leave him alone and do not put him in a scenario where he will be confused, he will provide his finest performance “the coach said about his ward.

Akash Deep smacked eight sixes in the Ranji quarterfinals against Jharkhand. Deep had smashed 53 off 18 balls in the first innings of the game.
