Avesh Khan has revealed his desire to be picked in the T20 World cup which is scheduled at the end of the year. One good sign for him is, Skipper Rohit Sharma has previously stated that he is looking to identify players for the mega event in this series followed by the series against Sri Lanka — So this is a great chance for him to prove and book a slot in the squad.
Speaking in a recent interview he said — “I’m looking at the West Indies as an opportunity. Obviously, representing the country is every cricketer’s dream. Any young player takes up the sport so that he can represent India one day. I have got that chance… I want to grab that opportunity and help the team win matches with my performances,”
He also added — “Obviously because World Cup is a big stage. After breaking into the national side, every player aims of playing in the World Cup and help India win the trophy. It’s been at the back of my mind. I want to help India win the World Cup,”

He has concluded by saying — “I was on the flight at that time and I had expected I would get at least 7 Crores. But since I was on the flight and couldn’t watch the auction live, I was feeling a bit nervous thinking which team would pick me and for how much. Upon landing when I got to know that Lucknow bought me for 10 Crores, I froze for five seconds,
