T20I debutant, India pacer Avesh Khan who played in the third T20I against West Indies on Sunday at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata said that he will try to give his best whenever he plays for the country.
"I felt really good. Every player dreams about playing for the country and that came true for me. I enjoyed the match, we won the game so overall it was a good feeling. I will try to excel as much as I can for the country. It was my debut, I was obviously a little nervous. Rohit bhai backed me, Rahul sir told me to enjoy the game. We defeated windies in both ODI and T20I series, so it is a great feeling," Avesh told teammate Venkatesh Iyer in a video posted on BCCI.TV.

"I am trying to do the role assigned to me by the management. I am trying to finish the innings off. It is an asset for every captain if he can get two overs out of someone," he added
