Since its inception, the Indian Premier League has been a platform to bring young talent forward. Over the years we have already witnessed numerous players, including Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, and T Natarajan, making their name after performing in the mega-event. The current edition of the IPL has been no different as the youngsters like Tilak Verma, Mukesh Choudhary, Umran Malik, and Mohsin Khan have managed to steal the limelight. Meanwhile, the former India leg-spinner Amit Mishra is impressed by the Lucknow Super Giants’ left-arm pacer Mohsin Khan the most.
The young left-arm pacer warmed the bench for the Lucknow Super Giants during the initial phase of the tournament but an injury to Avesh Khan paved a way for the former. Mohsin grabbed the opportunity with both hands with fiery bowling spells since then.
With each passing game, Mohsin’s stocks are on a rise. The 23-years-old pacer has accounted for 10 wickets in 6 matches at a highly impressive economy rate of 5.19. Mohsin Khan has arguably the most impactful player for LSG after their skipper KL Rahul.
Following a string of impressive performances, the former Indian leg-spinner Amit Mishra could not stop himself from praising the youngster. Mishra took Twitter to heap praises on the left-armer post LSG’s last game.
Amit Mishra urges the Indian team management to groom Mohsin Khan
In his Tweet, Mishra Ji wrote, “This is an appreciation tweet for Mohsin Khan. He is hardly bowling any bad balls these days. If he gets proper guidance and training he can easily be India’s left hand pacer. One we are looking desperately after Zaheer Khan.”

For those who don’t know, India have been searching for a quality left-handed pacer since the retirement of legendary Zaheer Khan. The current Indian pace attack has world-class pacers, including Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, and Mohammad Siraj but all of them are right-handed.
However, India could now groom the younger crop from Mohsin Khan, Mukesh Choudhary, Yash Dayal, and T Natarajan as the next left-handed pacer.
