All-rounder Axar Patel has had an excellent IPL season for the Delhi Capitals. Axar’s strike-rate (142) has been 3rd-best among batsmen who have played more than ten games for Delhi Capitals in this competition.
The all-rounder’s bowling record has been acceptable this season. Patel has scalped 8 wickets at an economy pace of 6.46. The rate has been the best in the Delhi Capitals side and 3rd-best among bowlers in IPL 2020 behind Rashid Khan and Washington Sundar.
In an exclusive meeting with DNA, Axar Patel discussed his structure and how he has improved as a player.
“I don’t trust I have rolled out any significant improvements with my bowling in explicit. Notwithstanding, I have taken in a great deal in this period from last season to this season. I believe I have decided out how to back my qualities however much as could be expected. A few years back, I used to attempt a ton of things with my bowling and would consistently need to go over the edge with varieties and my movement, yet now I’m more focused on adhering to the nuts and bolts, instead of bringing varieties which are out of my benefits,” Axar Patel said.
His usual has been low; however, that is generally because he comes to bat at no. 7. Yet, has helped DC dominate a vital game against CSK with the bat. He crushed three sixes in the last over of Ravindra Jadeja. Indeed, even in the main Qualifiers, Axar and Stoinis were the remarkable prominent donors with the bat after the Capitals lost initial three batsmen for a duck.
“I’m an all-rounder who comes to bat let down the request however I don’t think I’ve ever disregarded my batting. I have consistently been a cooperative person who is prepared to take on any job which my group needs me to play, both with the bat and the bowl. At whatever point I find the opportunity to bat, I attempt to do the best for my group. I have consistently delighted in batting and in the event that you see, I’ve had the option to play some significant pushes throughout the long term both locally and globally and I just plan to continue doing that. I need to consistently continue improving in all parts of my game, and batting is positively something I focus on. You could see that when we confronted Mumbai recently in Qualifier 1 – Stoin (Marcus Stoinis) and I were striking the ball well, however lamentably we were unable to be fruitful,” Axar Patel said.
Delhi Capitals is set to confront Sunrisers Hyderabad in Qualifier 2.
