India Vs West Indies 2nd ODI Rohit Sharma Tweet Axar Patel For His Heroics In Ind Vs WI 2nd ODI


New Delhi: Team India’s star spinner Axar Patel, playing the 40th One-Day-International match of his cricketing career, remained not out on 64 runs off just 35 balls to finish the second ODI with a six on the fourth ball of the final over to seal a 2-0 series win for his team. Axar had come out to bat at number seven when India needed 107 runs for the win from 11.2 overs. With the last two balls remaining, Axar delivered a well-timed six to help India chase down mammoth 312 runs. Ind vs WI 2nd ODI was team India’s second match in the three-match ODI series that went down to the very last over. Axar took a wicket along with his brilliant innings and was adjudged man of the match.

Reacting to Axar’s heroics in the second ODI, India’s all-format skipper Rohit Sharma, who is not part of the ongoing Windies tour, took to Twitter to congratulate Axar Patel for his match-winning performance.

Rohit Sharma tweeted, “Woah that was some performance from team India last night. Bapu badhu Saru che @akshar2026 @bcci.”

The third and final ODI match of the Ind vs WI ODI series is to be played on July 27. After this, a five-match T20 International series is also to be played between the two teams.  Along with the T20 series, Rohit Sharma will also return to the India squad.
