Axar Patel delivered a miserly spell during India's 2nd T20I against Australia

Axar Patel was named in Team India's initial 15-member roster for the showpiece event. However, he was later ruled out due to a left quadriceps strain he sustained while batting during the team's 2023 Asia Cup fixture against Bangladesh.

Axar was later replaced by veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin in India's World Cup squad.

Axar made his return to international cricket in India's ongoing five-match home T20I series against Australia. He chipped in with a tidy spell in the opening encounter in Vizag, conceding just 32 runs from his four overs in a high-scoring clash.

He followed it up with yet another impressive performance, returning with 1/25 in the second T20I at the Greenfield International Stadium on Sunday, November 26. Axar picked up the crucial wicket of Glenn Maxwell, who looked threatening during his eight-ball 12-run knock, as Australia fell 44 runs short while chasing 236.

The Suryakumar Yadav-led side have taken a 2-0 lead, courtesy of their two-wicket win and 44-run victory in the first and second T20I, respectively.

The third T20I between India and Australia will take place at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati on Tuesday, November 28.
