India fast bowler Avesh Khan during the Indians vs County Select XI match suffered a painful blow to his appendix. Avesh, who is in England as a reserve bowler for the Indian team, played at the request of the host team for the County Select XI, which was a few players short.
Avesh, who was yet to make his India debut in one of three formats, was impressive enough in domestic cricket and the Indian Premier League (IPL), as many expected him to be in the Indian squad for Sri Lanka. . in the overseas tour, he is selected rather as a reserve player for the English tour.
Avesh opened the scoring with Craig Miles for Select XI province after Indian captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bat first. However, the bowler of Madhya Pradesh was punished because Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul and Hanuma Vihari took him too much because he bowled either too short or too full.
BCCI provides update on Avesh Khan’s injury:
Avesh Khan suffered an injury after receiving a fatal blow to his left hand during his second game in the ongoing warm-up game at Chester-Le-Street in Durham. The incident occurred on the fifth ball of the 35th over when Hanuma Vihari drilled a full-length delivery straight to Avesh Khan.
Avesh responds immediately from pain and pushes in his left thumb. Khan immediately appealed to the Indian medical staff while making up in intense pain, and his teammate from India, Hanuma Vihari, was very worried about his well-being and quickly investigated his compatriot.
Khan left the field at the Indian physio shortly afterwards and his over was finally completed by Craig Miles. Commentators on the air suggested that Avesh may have dislocated his left thumb after the blow.
