After terrific IPL 2021 and 2022 season, Avesh Khan was rather underwhelming last season, taking only 8 wickets from 9 matches with average of 35.38 and economy rate of 9.76. As a result, he has been traded to the Rajasthan Royals ahead of the IPL 2024 season, while Devdutt Padikkal has gone the other way.
