Watch: Axar Patel Knocks Over Glenn Maxwell For A Golden Duck In IND vs AUS 2nd T20I

India National Cricket Team left-arm spinner Axar Patel castled star Australia National Cricket Team all-rounder Glenn Maxwell for a golden duck in the second match of the three-match T20I series at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Jamtha, Nagpur on Friday, September 23.

Axar was the only positive for India in the first T20I match of the series in the bowling department as he ended his spell with figures of 4-0-17-3. Barring Axar Patel, who picked up the wickets of Aaron Finch, Cameron Green and Josh Inglis, the rest of the Indian bowlers went at over 10 runs an over at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali, Chandigarh on Tuesday, September 20.

Meanwhile, in the second T20I, Axar cleaned up Glenn Maxwell in his very first over for a golden duck. On the last ball of the 2nd over of the match, Axar delivered a length ball angling in from round the wicket and the Australian all-rounder backed away, made the room and was looking to smash the ball away, but the ball sneaked through and clattered into the stumps.

India Lost 1st T20I By 4 Wickets

In the first T20I between the teams, which was played at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali, Chandigarh on Tuesday, September 20, the Indian batters Hardik Pandya (71), KL Rahul (55) and Suryakumar Yadav (46) played absolutely sensational innings to help the Men In Blue post 208 for 6.

However, India’s main bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal and Harshal Patel struggled as well as Umesh Yadav and Hardik Pandya didn’t bowl well, which resulted in India failing to defend the 200-plus target and Australia winning by 4 wickets with 4 balls remaining.
