I’m varying my pace well also able to read the batter’s mind: Axar Patel
Patel was awarded the ‘Player of the Match’ after taking 3 wickets and scoring 9 runs from his end. Although Delhi were chasing, they dropped wickets rapidly, with only Shreyas Iyer 33 (33) assuming control of the side. Pant contributed 26 runs to his team’s total.
“I think I’m varying my pace well, and also able to read the batter’s mind, think I’m one step ahead of them and that’s helping me. In that sense, it’s going well for me at the moment. I thought he’ll try to attack me (on his dismissal of Quinton de Kock), I felt he will try to go over cover and that’s why I went wide off-stump, he ended up slicing it to backward point,” said Patel after being declared MoM.
