Mohsin Khan made his debut in IPL 2022 itself and the left-arm fast bowler has taken 13 wickets in 8 matches for Lucknow Super Giants (LS).
The decision which was awaited by the Indian cricketers and the fans of the Indian team playing in IPL 2022 for the last several days, finally came on Sunday 22 May. After the IPL, the Indian cricket team will be busy in international cricket and will face South Africa for the first time in the five-match T20 series. Team India was selected for this series on Sunday and it featured fast bowling. Umran Malik (Umran Malik) has also got a chance. Umran, who impressed everyone with his fast pace, will join Team India for the first time. But apart from Umran, there is another bowler, whose selection was being demanded and there were chances of him being selected, but it could not happen.
These bowlers are – Mohsin Khan, the left-arm pacer of Uttar Pradesh. He made his debut for Lucknow Super Giants in IPL 2022. Along with his tall stature and speed, Mohsin also made a lot of impact with his edge and tight bowling and also played an important role in taking his team to the playoffs. In such a situation, there was a demand to include him along with Umran. Being a more economical bowler, he also had the upper hand.
Mohsin’s fitness benefits Umran
Then why Mohsin was not selected? According to the report of news agency PTI, the matter is of fitness. If Mohsin Khan was completely fit, then it would not have been easy for Umran to be selected. Umran took most of his wickets in the early part of the IPL as the batsmen were getting used to his pace but it is understandable that the selectors were more impressed with the left-armer Mohsin Khan of Uttar Pradesh, but Mohsin’s hamstring strain made the selection. Made the work of the committee easy.
Mohsin’s number will come?
Umran and Mohsin have done exceptionally well for their respective teams. Mohsin has taken 13 wickets in eight matches this season at an impressive economy rate of 5.93, while Umran has taken 21 wickets in 13 matches at an economy rate of 8.93. However, before the T20 World Cup, the Indian cricket team has to play at least 15 T20 matches and in such a situation, after this series, Mohsin can also get a chance, who adds an extra aspect to Team India by bowling fast with the left arm.
