10 wickets at 0

Akash did not find any buyer in the auction. Now the franchisee has included him in the base price of Rs 20 lakh. The 21-year-old Akash, who has played the Under-19 World Cup for India, has the experience of only 9 T20 matches. He has taken 7 wickets in these 9 matches. Akash has also done a wonderful job of taking 10 wickets without giving a run once, but he did this amazing thing in club cricket.

Left with Rajasthan

In a T20 match played in Jaipur in 2017, Akash did not give a single run in 4 overs and took all 10 wickets. In front of Akash, the opposition team was all out for 36 runs. In this match, he took a hat-trick in the last over. Akash made his T20 debut for Rajasthan in 2019, but moved from Rajasthan to Nagaland before the 2022-2023 domestic season and made his debut for Nagaland in October last year.
