All-rounder Axar Patel has said that his Indian Premier League (IPL) experience helped him secure his maiden fifty in the second ODI against West Indies. The half-century gave India a series-clinching victory in their second ODI against West Indies on Sunday.
The 28-year-old scored 64 not out off 35 balls. With his fifth six-run, he helped India claim the win with two balls to spare.
"It's very special. It came at a crucial time and also helped the team to win the series," Patel said after receiving the Man-of-the-Match award.
“When I went out, I aimed for 10-11 an over. We thought it could be done because of our IPL experience."
