Indian pacer Avesh Khan said the wicket was supporting the bowls during the third T20I and final of the three-legged series against Sri Lanka on Sunday (February 27) at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala.India won the T20I match last by six wickets. For the veterans, Shreyas Iyer starred with 73 unbeaten streaks as the Men in Blue chased a pitch of 146 out of 16.5 overs.
“The wicket supports the bowls, the idea is to hit a good line and lengths. The pole has dried up the other day (on why it struggled in the 3rd T20I against the West Indies), here I just need to in discipline, “said Avesh Khan in a post-match presentation.
Congratulations Young Avesh Khan, for making T20 International debut for his country. Young people should pursue their dreams in India and not fall for the Hindu hatred and the Muslim Victim Victory campaign which the likes of Rana Ayub and Arfa Khanum Sherwani want to follow instead. pic.twitter.com/KI7mdh2DLw
