RP Singh praises LSG’s pacer Mohsin Khan for his death bowling

Lucknow Super Giants

Former India pacer, RP Singh has lavished massive praise on Lucknow Super Giants’ pacer, Mohsin Khan.

In the game against Mumbai Indians at home, Mohsin Khan bowled a tight last over when Tim David and Cameron Green were at the crease.

Ultimately, LSG was able to defend 11 runs and won the game comfortably to gain the 3rd spot in the points table.

Additionally, Mohsin Khan had a pretty good season last year with LSG and was a breakthrough bowler for them.

However, a shoulder injury almost threatened to end his cricketing career forever and he was sidelined for quite some time.

While he wasn’t that good at the start for his franchise this season, he nevertheless came back and helped LSG get two crucial match points.

Meanwhile, RP Singh has highlighted Mohsin’s death over tactics and stated that the young pacer was bowling brilliantly against two world-class batters.

Additionally, he was bowling as per the strengths of the batter and was reacting to the situation accordingly.

Says Singh,

Mohsin Khan did some out-of-the-box things with his bowling. He bowled a length ball, a short good-length ball, after that a yorker, bowling with a better plan. He knew against which batters the yorker would work well. Cameron Green is a proper batter and his bat speed is a little different. For him, short or good length worked well from Mohsin Khan. Sometimes, you have to back your skills. Everything cannot be planned. Certain things need to be dealt with your instincts in certain moments.

RP Singh also talks about Mumbai Indians’ fall-out in the game

Meanwhile, the former India pacer also gave his opinion on where Mumbai Indians started to lose the game.

According to Singh, after the wickets of Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma fell in quick succession for MI, the game turned quickly in favor of LSG.

The pressure went up after Ishan Kishan went out. I also think that Nehal Wadhera and Suryakumar Yadav were unable to rotate the strike well. Nehal ended up playing a lot of dot balls and Suryakumar Yadav just had to stand on the runner’s end for a while. He probably didn’t like it and it probably was one of the reasons behind the loss.
