He also showed strict bowling at a brilliant economy of just 7.70. Khan also led the pace attack for Delhi Capitals and performed better than teammate Kagiso Rabada in the 8 matches. As a result, Avesh Khan has grabbed the limelight among many franchises and cricket fans.

The concern was Delhi Capitals is that they will face an issue to retain Avesh in IPL 2022 next year. Ahead of IPL 2022, a mega auction will take place and every franchise can only retain 5 players in their squad including two overseas players. Delhi Capitals will go for Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje as the overseas players and will mostly seek to retain players like Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Shikhar Dhawan, and Prithvi Shaw in the squad.

Chennai Super Kings is one team that will seek to pick Avesh. CSK witnessed the strength of Avesh Khan in their first game of IPL 2021 when the Delhi Capitals pacer dismissed MS Dhoni and Faf du Plessis for a duck. Chennai Super Kings’ primary pacer is Deepak Chahar who led the pace attack against the opposition in IPL 2021.

CSK also has Shardul Thakur but he is not that effective as he concedes a lot of runs. Chennai Super Kings will definitely look for another powerful pacer to strengthen their bowling attack and Avesh Khan will be a good choice. Therefore, Chennai Super Kings is one team that can pick Avesh in IPL 2021.
