Watch: Axar Patel smashed a match-winning six in the 2nd ODI against Windies
India won the second ODI against the Windies by a slim margin of 2 wickets, clinching the ODI series with one game remaining. The two teams played another amazing game of cricket. Without having any notable players in the lineup, Team India successfully tracked down the 312 run target to win the series.
This series disproves the claims that One Day International cricket is waning in popularity and glory and demonstrates that the game is still very much alive. In the second ODI, Axar Patel was the hero for India, scoring his first ODI fifty and helping Team India win in the final over.
3 fours and 5 sixes were part of Axar Patel's amazing undefeated 64 runs off just 35 balls. When the team required 6 runs from the final 3 balls, that was the biggest moment of the game. Axar Patel was on strike and faced Mayers, who had been outstanding throughout the innings with the ball. He scored the game-winning six over long off to give India the victory.
