Axar Patel Reveals His Game Plan Against England In 4th Test
Left-arm spinner Axar Patel said on Saturday that it was his confidence that helped him take a nine-wicket haul in the fourth and final Test against England here.
Playing his first Test series, Patel captured 27 wickets at a stunning average of 10.59 in the four-match Test series.
"I think the confidence helped me. I got wickets in the first game and kept on carrying the confidence," Patel said after India's innings and 25-run win in the fourth Test on Saturday.
"I only bowled faster ones more often in the previous games but here we needed to vary our pace."
Axar was partly responsible for Sundar remaining stranded at 96 for lack of partners when India were bowled out. Axar was run out as the eighth wicket and Ishant Sharma and Mohamed Siraj, who followed him, didn't last long enough to help Sundar reach his maiden century.
