“I want to play for India,” said the fast bowler who was benched by the BCCI after troubling CSK


After scoring 2/21 in four overs against Chennai Super Kings, Khaleel Ahmed was named the “Player of the Match.”

Delhi Capitals (DC) bowler Khaleel Ahmed stated after his team’s 20-run victory over Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match that he has worked really hard during the domestic season and that playing for India is his ultimate ambition. The Delhi Capitals defeated the reigning champion Chennai Super Kings by 20 runs on Sunday at the ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium to secure their first victory of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season.

After scoring 2/21 in four overs, Khaleel was declared the “Player of the Match.”

During the post-match presentation after the victory, Khaleel declared, “I have worked hard in the domestic season.” I’ve played a lot of matches over the past six months, which has improved my game knowledge. When the ball swings and the batters get beaten, I become really excited. I’ve attempted to ascertain how to maintain my fitness. You may learn a lot about the ball’s release technique from the red-ball game. Playing for India is the ultimate objective.”

Taking 14 wickets at an average of 25.78 and recording the best bowling stats of 4/19, Khaleel played in six Ranji Trophy 2024 matches.

DC chose to bat first after winning the toss. A returning Prithvi Shaw (43 in 27 balls, four boundaries, two sixes) and David Warner (52 in 35 balls, with five fours and three sixes) got things going with a 93-run opening combination. After being dismissed, DC appeared to be losing their way until Rishabh Pant (51 in 32 balls, four boundaries, and three sixes) made some fast runs to get the team to 191/5 in their 20 overs.

The best bowler for CSK was Matheesha Pathirana (3/31).

In the run-chase of 192, Khaleel Ahmed (2/21) and Mukesh Kumar (3/21) troubled the CSK batters with their line and length, and at one point, CSK was 75/3 in 10.2 overs. Useful knocks came from Ajinkya Rahane (45 in 30 balls, with five fours and two sixes), Daryl Mitchell (34 in 26 balls, with a four and two sixes) and MS Dhoni (37* in 16 balls, with four boundaries and three sixes), but DC secured a 20-run win, restricting the five-time champions to 171/6.

Khaleel got the ‘Player of the Match’ for his match-winning spell.With two victories, one defeat, and four points, CSK is in second place. DC has two points, one win, two losses, and is ranked seventh.
