At the post match presentation, Player of the Match Patel said: “It’s very special, to get it in a crucial, series-winning cause is amazing. When I went out, I aimed for 10-11 an over. We thought it could be done as we have IPL experience.
“We wanted to be calm and keep cover of the rate. This was special as this is my first ODI since 2017, even my first fifty came here.”
India skipper Shikhar Dhawan was also lavish in his praise for the all-rounder. “The way Axar played was amazing. Our domestic and IPL cricket keeps us ready as we play in front of big crowds. As Axar said, he’s done it multiple times in IPL. That brings a big stage,” he said.
