Axar Patel recorded 3 for 24 in 7.3 overs in the opening ODI against Zimbabwe. By the end of the game, India had won by 10 wickets.

All-rounder Axar Patel received high accolades from former India cricketer Aakash Chopra for his performance in the team’s opening ODI of the three-match series against Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club. Axar recorded stats of 3 for 24 in 7.3 overs as India thrashed Zimbabwe by 10 wickets on Thursday. Axar is still under Ravindra Jadeja’s spotlight, according to Chopra, and he won’t have a chance as long as Jadeja is healthy and available to play.

“It has been a heartbreaking (sic) journey to watch Axar Patel climb to prominence. He is a cricketer who excelled in First-Class cricket before moving to the international level. He still lives in Ravindra Jadeja’s shadow, so by the time Jadeja is well and available to play, Axar won’t have a chance. But anytime he has the chance, he makes a good impression “Chopra stated on his YouTube page.

While Kuldeep Yadav, another spinner who recently fell out of favor, failed to take any wickets, Axar made the most of the chance to establish his case. Despite being efficient in his 10-over outing against Zimbabwe, Kuldeep only allowed 36 runs.

“Kuldeep Yadav failed to secure any wickets. You anticipate catches from him. There is no assistance for him in this pitch. In my opinion, he could have bowled more quickly in the air, “Chopra included.

On August 20, the second One-Day International between India and Zimbabwe will take place there. On August 22, the third and final game of the series will take place.
