India National Cricket Team left arm spinner Axar Patel cheaply sent Australian batter Tim David away for just 2 runs after he neatly castrated his wicket in the second match of the T20I series of three matches at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Jamtha, Nagpur on Friday Sept 23.
Tim David went for a mighty swing but completely missed the length of the ball to give his wicket away cheaply.
Axar Patel highlight of India’s performance so far
Axar was the only highlight for India in the first T20I match of the series in the bowling division, as he ended his spell with figures of 4-0-17-3. With the exception of Axar Patel, who took the wickets of Aaron Finch, Cameron Green and Josh Inglis, the rest of the Indian bowlers went over by more than 10 runs on Tuesday, September 20 at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali, Chandigarh.
Meanwhile, in the second T20I, Axar cleared Glenn Maxwell in his very first over for a golden duck. On the last ball of the 2nd left of the match, Axar delivered a long ball that fished in from the wicket and the Australian all-rounder backed away, cleared the room and tried to knock the ball away, but the ball crept through and clattered into the stumps.
