IPL 2020: Ali Khan becomes the first American to play in IPL

According to reports, Kolkata Knight Riders has found the replacement for Harry Gurney. Harry is a renowned pacer from KKR, but unfortunately will be out of the tournament this year for some severe injuries. The name of the replacement is Ali Khan, a fast bowler from the USA and the interesting fact is he will be the first American to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Recently in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), Ali Khan represented the winning side, the Trinbago Knight Riders. The 29-year-old American Pacer was on the DJ boy Dwayne Bravo’s Instagram story, captioned “next stop Dubai”. Both of them have represented the TKR in CPL.

Harry Gurney is a pretty good medium-pace bowler, known for his wicket-taking ability. He has injured his shoulder and after the operation, the news came out that he is going to miss the IPL as well as England’s Vitality Blast.

It will be the first introduction of Ali Khan in the IPL. Apart from it, he has had successful stints with the Karachi Kings (Pakistan Super League), Khulna Titans (Bangladesh Premier League), and Kabul Zwanan (Afghanistan Premier League).

Ali Khan has Picked up eight wickets at an economy rate of 7.43 in the recently concluded CPL. His team the Trinbago Knight Riders have won all the 12 matches and became the winner of the tournament for the fourth time in the CPL history.

According to experts, the decision is pretty good from the KKR officials as Ali Khan is typically known for his 140+ pace and taking wickets with deadly yorkers. In 2018, he has taken 16 wickets in 12 matches in CPL. So, KKR has witnessed his abilities and kept him as a standby option. Now he has a great chance to show his lethal bowling abilities in the biggest T20 league in the world.
