India has found a left-arm spinner who is doing the containing role beatifully. Axar Patel is looking solid at any stage of the game, and is one of the key contributors to the wickets tally in the Indian team. With Ravindra Jadeja out, Axar Patel is taking his opportunities very well and looks really solid in his position as the spin bowling all-rounder.
