Axar Patel Complete Bio & Career

Axar Patel first came to limelight after his outing in the 2014 2014 edition of the IPL (Indian Premier League). An orthodox left-arm bowler from Gujarat, Patel made his domestic debut in the year 2012 by playing a Vijay Hazare Trophy match representing Gujarat against Maharashtra.
The very same year, he made his Ranji Trophy debut against Madhya Pradesh. After this domestic season, he was roped in by IPL franchise Mumbai Indians. However, he didn’t feature in any of the game. He made sure that he doesn’t just warm the bench and hence he worked hard and played a crucial role in Gujarat’s outing. He was among the runs and also picked up as many as 29 wickets and became third-highest wicket-taker of his side.
IPL franchise Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) were highly impressed by his skill and signing him for the 7th edition turned out to be a master-stroke as he was the best performer for them that season. He ended the tournament with the 'Emerging Player of the Year' trophy in 2014. He considers himself as a batting all-rounder who can bowl. However, it's his bowling that has made the rounds and earned him a spot on the national team as well. He made his ODI debut against Bangladesh in 2014 and since then has been around the team in the shorter format of the game. He was also drafted in the 2015 ICC World Cup as well. However with one left-arm spinner in Ravindra Jadeja was already present in the team, he warmed the bench throughout the World Cup. A series of injuries kept him out for some time but ever since he has made his comeback in 2017 from the series in Sri Lanka, he has won selectors faith and is now India’s first choice left-arm spinner in the shorter format of the game. He picked up an injury in 2017 and missed out on a lot of action after that. With Ravindra Jadeja once again coming back in the fold of ODIs, he has lost his place in the national side.
