IPL 2022: R Ashwin prediction, “a bidding war for Avesh Khan at mega auction”

On Thursday, Master spinner Ravichandran Ashwin made a massive prediction, saying uncapped Indian pacer Avesh Khan will stimulate a massive bidding war at the Indian Premier League (IPL) mega auction for the 2022 season.

Ashwin said that he can imagine a bidding war for Avesh Khan just like Vijay Mallya had bullied to rope in the master off-spinner during the 2010 auction. Avesh, who was announced by Delhi Capitals, has put his base price as INR 20 lakh for the auction and is amid the first set of uncapped players in the auction pool that contains 590 players.

Avesh has been one of the artiste for the Delhi Capitals franchise since joining the team for INR 70 lakh a couple of years ago. The 25-year-old pacer ended the IPL 2021 as the second-highest wicket-taker, with Harshal Patel the only one forward of him.

While speaking about the IPL 2022 auction on his YouTube channel, 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 made his IPL entrance in 2017 but only played one game. Only in the 2021 season, did he become a regular in DC playing XI. For the franchise, he took 24 wickets in 16 matches at an economy rate of 7.37.
