Do you know who Akash Deep is, who replaced Deepak Chahar in Team India? There is a connection to Mohammed Shami

Team India, which is touring South Africa, will start the ODI series from today. The first ODI match will be played between hosts South Africa and India at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg, the capital of South Africa. In this game, a new fast bowler can make his debut for Team India.

Fast bowling all-rounder Deepak Chahar was included in Team India’s ODI squad for the South Africa tour but he withdrew his name from the squad due to a medical emergency in the family and the BCCI selectors replaced him with the fast bowler Akash replaced. Deep was added to the team. In this article we will tell you about this new young fast bowler who has joined the team in place of Deepak Chahar.

The Team India selectors had actually included Deepak Chahar in the squad for the ODI series against South Africa, but as his father’s health was very poor, he had to return home and in his place, BCCI named Akash Deep in the team.

Bihar-born Akash Deep plays domestic cricket for the Bengal team, which is also the home team of Mohammed Shami. Akash is a fast bowling all-rounder known for right-arm medium-pace bowling and big shots in the lower order with the right hand.

Therefore, the role of this player is exactly the same as that of Deepak Chahar in Team India. Apart from Bengal, Akash has also played cricket for Rest of India and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL. Akash Deep could make his debut in the first ODI match of Team India’s tour to South Africa and he could also get a chance to bowl with the new ball.

Akash has played a total of 28 List A matches, taking 42 wickets in 28 innings at an average of 24.50 and an excellent economy rate of just 4.82. During this period his best bowling figure was taking 3 wickets for 6 runs. Apart from this, Akash has played a total of 41 matches in his T20 career and picked up a total of 48 wickets at an average of 22.81 and an economy rate of 7.52. During this period his best bowling figure was taking 4 wickets for 35 runs. In his first-class career, this player has played a total of 25 matches, taking a total of 90 wickets in 42 innings at an average of 22.54 and an economy rate of 3.06. His best bowling figures were 6 wickets for 60 runs.

Talking about Akash Deep’s batting performance, this player has scored 140 runs in List A cricket at an average of 12.72 and a strike rate of 116.66 and his best score is 44 runs. At the same time, in T20 cricket, he scored 76 runs at a strike rate of 146.15 and his best score is 17 runs. Apart from this, in his first-class career, Akash has scored 375 runs at an average of 12.93 and his best score is 53 not out. Akash has hit a total of 36 fours and 46 sixes in all his innings so far. This clearly means that Akash Deep can hit big shots very well and Team India can get a good pace bowling all-rounder in his form.

In the IPL, Akash Deep has played cricket for only one team so far, namely Royal Challengers Bangalore RCB. Virat Kohli’s team RCB had included this pace bowler in their team in IPL 2022 by giving a base price of Rs 20 lakh. In the 2022 IPL season, this player played 5 matches and took 5 wickets. After that, also in IPL 2023, this player played only 2 matches but only had a chance to bowl 5 overs in which he took 1 wicket.
