The Men in blue have been doing well in the T20I format and have been giving great performances and are currently the number 1 ranked team in the rankings. There have been a lot of talented players with consistent performances in the shortest format as well. The likes of Surya Kumar Yadav and Rohit Sharma are some of the big names that have been involved in the success of the men in blue. The amount of talent available in the ranks is another asset to the team who has only seen more success than failure in the shortest format so far.
One player who has been one of the underrated superstars for the Indian team is Axar patel. The star all rounder from Gujarat is known for his accurate left arm spin bowling and handy cameos down the order with the bat. Axar has proved himself on the big stage in T20I’s taking 49 wickets in 50 innings at a wonderful economy of 7.26. He has also shown the same consistency in Tests and ODI’s as well and has already taken more than 150 wickets in international cricket.
Axar enters the top 5
There is no surprise that Axar has now entered into the 5th rank in T20I bowlers right now and will be looking to take the same confidence forward. Axar has also proven himself as an impactful player in the ongoing T20i series vs Afghanistan as well where he was once again at the top of his game with left arm spin where he has not only beaten the defence of the batters, but also was one of the most economical bowlers on very good batting surfaces It will be interesting to see how far his career is going to go from here.
The consistent performance from Axar Patel is surely going to fix his place in the upcoming T20 World Cup as well if he continues the same form. He will be important in the side not only for his performances but also for his wide skill set, where he will be taking wickets in the middle and also capable of playing some crucial cameos with the bat down the order as well. We hope that we still get to see the consistency of Axar going further into the big tournaments coming up.
