Axar Patel -XAxar Patel -X

India are off to a flying start in their T20 World Cup 2024 opener against Ireland, as the Men in Blue reduced the Irish to 52/8 after 12 overs. The decision to bowl first after winning the toss went in Rohit's favour as the seamers did their job and picked up seven of the eight wickets. 

Meanwhile, Axar Patel too joined the party and got the eighth wicket. On the 2nd ball of his first over, Patel took a brilliant catch off his own bowling which got the internet talking. 

Patel got Barry McCarthy out for a six-ball duck after he bowled a slower delivery, which the batter hit in his direction, but it required great athleticism for him. Here is the video of the dismissal.

Also, with the wicket, Patel completed 50 wickets in T20Is. Before the start of the match, very few predicted the chances of Axar making it into the playing XI, but once the list was announced at the toss, the fans were shocked to see the likes of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal out.
