Lucknow Super Giants vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, IPL 2022 Eliminator: LSG’s left-arm seamer Mohsin Khan was on fire with the new ball as he struck early to remove RCB skipper Faf du Plessis and helped his team take early initiative in the knockout clash at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

Mohsin has been one of the finds of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) and has impressed one and all with the new ball. It took him only five balls to get rid of the RCB skipper after Lucknow Super Giants won the toss and opted to bowl first. Mohsin backed up his captain’s decision and bowled beautifully in his first spell, conceding just 17 in his first three overs.

The ball that got rid of Du Plessis was near perfect ball for a left-arm pacer that pitched on and around the middle and off stump and just about moved away a bit to take the edge to the keeper. Du Plessis was forced to make the nervous poke and the Quinton de Kock made no mistake behind the stumps.

Twitter was in complete awe of the left-arm pacer with some even suggesting that he is better than Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh and should be fast-tracked into the Indian team.

Here are some the Twitter reactions to Mohsin Khan’s brilliant spell:

Mohsin ended with figures of 1 for 25 in a match where all the other bowlers of LSG went for plenty as Royal Challengers Bangalore reached a mammoth total of 207 for 4 in their alloted 20 overs.
