Hailing from a middle-class family in Indore, Avesh Khan’s whole family were cricket enthusiasts. His father, Ashique Khan was very much into the game but rarely got chances to watch matches completely between his struggles to meet ends. He used to run a paan shop by the roadside and earn around 500 rupees per day. Avesh Khan started playing tennis ball cricket at the age of 10. With an exceptional physique, Avesh could generate a good pace on the ball at a very young age. His supportive uncle suggested trying leather ball cricket which became his first step toward becoming a professional cricketer. He trained hard on his bowling skills and pace.

His journey to the top started at the Colts Cricket Club in Indore where he excelled under the coaching of Amardeep Pathania. His father could never see his talent and performance. So he urged him to concentrate more on his studies. Despite good performances in age-level cricket, he couldn’t make his way into the state team. That’s when he got to know about the trials conducted by Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association.

Avesh knew it was his opportunity to seize. He appeared along with 500 other young aspirants, all set to impress the selector, Amay Khurasia who was a former Madhya Pradesh and national cricket player. Quite astonishingly, Avesh Khan was the only one to get selected for that trial. Under Amay, Avesh Khan widened his benchmarks as a pace bowler, playing for the U16 Madhya Pradesh team.

The Breakthrough

In the U16 Vijay Merchant trophy, his phenomenal performance proved that he is well clear of every other player of his age. Unfortunately, at such a crucial point in his career, his father lost his job as the local authorities were forced to clear the paan shop from the roadside as a part of the road-widening project. Avesh started feeling the burden of the financial crisis of his family on his shoulders, but he faced the situation bravely. He never spent any of match earnings but was given for family expenses. He made his U19 debut in 2014 but didn’t get many opportunities to shine. The youngster had a huge setback when he faced an injury and couldn’t get enough chances to prove himself in the U19 World cup he featured in.

The warrior spirit in Avesh Khan became truly alive after such a tragic turn of events. He gave his all in training and made his comeback, straight into the Madhya Pradesh Ranji Trophy side at the tender age of 17. He took 15 wickets from just five matches. Avesh was named in the very next U19 World Cup squad as well, led by Ishan Kishan and paired up with Khaleel Ahmed to be a serious pace duo. Though India lost in the final match of the tournament against West Indies, Avesh had finished as India’s leading wicket taker with 12 wickets from 6 matches.

In the domestic circuit, Avesh Khan is still a solid performer. In the 2018-2019 Ranji season, he clinched a total of 37 wickets including a ten-wicket haul. But no Indian bowler gets the limelight until he proves it at the grand stage. Avesh Khan, in 2017, was signed by Royal Challengers Bangalore.

In his debut season, he got to play his debut match only. 2017 was a horrible season for the Royal Challengers finishing at the bottom of the table. He was bought by Delhi Capitals the very next season in the mega auction but couldn’t make a real impact until last season. IPL 2021 is only halfway through but the muscular boy from Indore has made his name popular. His franchise Delhi Capitals is currently at the head of the table and Avesh Khan is second in the purple cap race with 14 wickets from 8 matches. His 3 for 32 against RR turned out to be the match-winning performance for DC. Avesh has transformed himself into a bowler who could ace both the new and old balls.
