IND vs IRE: 3 Indian Players Who Didn’t Deserve A Spot In India Squad For Ireland
3. Axar Patel
Axar Patel is the first player on this list. The left-arm spinner has got a place in the IND vs IRE series. Although Axar Patel is a powerful spinner and all-rounder, he is not that effective in T20Is. The left-arm spinner accounts for 15 wickets in 18 T20Is so far at an average of 29.47.
In the ongoing IND vs SA T20I series, Patel has picked 2 wickets in 3 games at an average of 43.50. Taking a note of his recent performances, he could have been replaced with some other spinner during the series.
