Someone said that two rookie left-arm pacers who did better than expected in the Indian Premier League last year were just unlucky. Mukesh Choudhary, who is 26, and Moshin Khan, who is 24, both made their debuts in the 2022 season for Chennai Super Kings and Lucknow Super Giants, respectively. Both are hurt and have a bad chance of missing the next season.
Last year, both Choudhary and Moshin impressed critics and experts with their speed, penetration, and fighting skills. One of them was even in the running for the best player of the season award. They were bought for a base price of Rs 20 lakhs each, which is a coincidence.
Kasi Viswanathan from the Chennai Super Kings confirmed that they don’t have much hope for Choudhary, who has taken 16 wickets in 13 games. “We’re waiting for Mukesh, but we’re not very optimistic. Last year, he was one of our main bowlers. If he doesn’t go, it will be a shame, “The CEO of the company told Cricbuzz.
Choudhary is getting treatment for his back injury at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru right now. He has been playing domestically for about seven years, but he has only played 13 first-class games because he is mostly thought of for white ball matches. When asked, Mukesh said, “I’m fine and I hope to get better soon.” After a great IPL season, he played a few List A games for his home state, Maharashtra, but hasn’t played since December.
Moshin, a fast bowler from Uttar Pradesh who is 24 years old, played in nine IPL games last year. He took 14 wickets and had a very impressive economy rate of less than 6. (5.97). He was one of the stars for the Super Giants in their first season, when they made it to the playoffs. In the mid-league stage, his timely hits against Punjab Kings (3/24) and Delhi Capitals (4/16) helped LSG move up in the points table, and his performance in the game against Delhi Capitals earned him the MoM award.
Moshin is currently practicing with the team in Lucknow, with the hope that he will be able to play at some point this season. However, LSG officials would not say if they thought he would be able to play or not. On March 31, the IPL begins.
