A special video released by Start Sports ahead of the Asia Cup:
The spinners of the Indian team have been phenomenal against the opposition batters, as they scalped all the wickets of the West Indies side. Moreover, India has become the first side to take all the wickets with their spinners in the history of One-day international.
And, after winning the game, Axar Patel was named Game Changer of the match who scalped 3 wickets and shared a few words about his show with the ball in the post-match presentation.
"I was just focussing on keeping things simple, instead of trying too many things. Was just looking to use the surface to my advantage. The surfaces (in this series) have been helpful for me, so that has proved advantageous to me.
Both in the ODIs and T20s, the pitches were fairly same. I don't mind people calling me just an all-rounder, if I do well with the ball, I'll be a bowling all-rounder, if with the bat, then a batting all-rounder," Axar Patel was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
Meanwhile, ahead of the Asia Cup 2022, Star Sports have released a promo for the biggest rivalry, India vs Pakistan, as the video only featured the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma.
