Axar Patel’s inclusion in the World Cup raised quite a few eyebrows. He has been selected in the squad as a backup all-rounder to Ravindra Jadeja. Axar Patel provides a left-arm spin option and is a handy batsman down the order. However, Patel is unlikely to make it into the playing XI, keeping in mind Ravindra Jadeja’s sensational form in recent times.

Axar Patel made his T20 debut for India back in 2015. To date, he has managed to play 12 T20 internationals for India, picking 9 wickets at an average of 32.11.
