New Delhi. The bowler who was not even considered worthy of the IPL 2023 auction, the bowler who was dropped after the registration process, today that player wreaked havoc with his ball. We are talking about UAE’s left arm spinner Ayan Afzal Khan who has done wonders on the basis of his spin. Ayan took 4 wickets for just 6 runs in 10 overs in the ACC Men’s Premier Cup.
This match was against Bahrain, in which UAE bundled him out for 116 runs on the basis of Ayaan’s excellent bowling. After this, UAE achieved this target by losing just 2 wickets.
So Aayan Afzal Khan (17yrs 162days) has four for four in eight overs against Bahrain at the moment. Including this. Ridiculous

Ayan’s havoc, Bahrain’s team collapses
Ayan may be a spinner but he was put on the opening bowling. He came down to bowl opening with Junaid Siddiqui. This left-arm spinner bowled amazingly and spent only 6 runs in 10 overs. His economy rate was 0.60. The amazing thing is that he bowled 7 maiden overs.
amazing of ayan
Please tell that Ayan has included his name in the list of veterans by throwing 7 over maidens in ODIs. Before him, Bishan Singh Bedi and Phil Simmons have bowled 8 overs in ODIs. Kapil Dev has also bowled 8 overs maiden. Talking about Ayan, this player played the T20 World Cup last year at the age of just 16. Ayan is the best all-rounder and his average in ODIs is above 35. At the same time, he has also taken 23 wickets in 15 matches.
UAE’s position strong
UAE got a big win on the basis of Ayan’s bowling. Apart from Ayan’s amazing bowling, wicketkeeper Arvind and Rohan Mustafa also played brilliant half-century innings. With this win, UAE is at the top of its group. UAE has won three out of 4 matches in this tournament. At the same time, Bahrain’s team has won only one out of 4 matches.
