On May 16, Mohsin Khan captured the attention of the town as he played a crucial role in helping Lucknow Super Giants defend a mere 11 runs in the final over against the formidable Mumbai Indians. Facing the hard-hitting duo of Cam Green and Tim David, Mohsin’s performance stood out.
In the previous season, he had displayed exceptional skills as a left-arm fast bowler, taking 14 wickets in nine matches with an impressive economy rate of 5.97. However, his shoulder injury, sustained after the season ended, forced him to miss the entire domestic season.
Consequently, he was unavailable for a significant portion of the ongoing edition, and despite his heroics against Mumbai Indians, his performance with the ball this season has been rather ordinary. Mohsin once again found himself in the spotlight during the Eliminator match against Mumbai Indians at Chepauk.
Unfortunately, his performance in this encounter fell far short of his previous showing against the same team. To his dismay, Cam Green, whom he had bowled exceptionally well against previously, punished him with a massive six and a blazing four in the first two overs. Notably, the six struck by Green reached the third tier, showcasing the smoothest hit of the entire innings.
In the ninth over, on the last ball, Mohsin delivered a ball around the off-stump, pitching it at a good length. Anticipating this kind of delivery, Green unleashed a ferocious pull, sending the ball sailing over deep mid-wicket and into the third tier.
The crowd erupted in excitement witnessing such a powerful hit on the relatively slower Chepauk track. However, simultaneously, Mohsin faced criticism for bowling short against Green, with netizens berating him for his lackluster season.
