Andrew McDonald heaps praise for Axar Patel following India’s series win

After Indian cricket team won the three-game T20I series against Australia by 2-1 on Sunday, 25th September, Australian head coach named Andrew McDonald heaped praise for Indian spin-bowler Axar Patel. Axar Patel was the top performer of this series against Australia as not only in the third T20I but he took crucial wickets in all the games of this series.

Andrew McDonald feels Axar is a perfect replacement chosen by India for the injured Ravindra Jadeja and he did a splendid job for which Indian fans never missed Ravindra Jadeja in this series. Indian left-handed spin bowler Axar Patel was named ‘Player of the series’ for taking 8 wickets in this series at an economy rate of 6.30. Axar gave just 63 runs in his 10 overs he bowled in this series.

This performance from India’s all-rounder (Axar Patel) caught an eye of Australian head coach after the series and he couldn’t hold himself talking good about him.

“Axar, in particular, had an outstanding series. With Jaddu out everyone thought that it might become a bit of a weakness for India, but they’ve found another one again, which tends to happen,” said Andrew McDonald at the post-match press conference as reported by TOI.
