Speaking after the game, while he on one hand said it was a season to forget for RCB, he was quick to mention the talent Avesh displayed on a slow and low Kotla track.
“Both Harshal (Patel) and Avesh played with a lot of heart. The way Avesh rushed it onto the batsmen on this pitch, something world-class bowlers couldn't do, was impressive,” he said.
While it was Harshal, Pawan Negi and Travis Head who picked the majority of wickets in the game against DD, it all started with Avesh sending back Sanju Samson for a duck.
More than the wicket, it was the style in which Avesh hurried a quality batsman like Samson that impressed all. He went on to then trouble both Karun Nair and Shreyas Iyer, showing that he has the heart to go all-out even on a dead track like the one at Kotla.
