The 27-year-old Test debutant picked up 27 wickets in just three games making an impact bigger than that of his spinner teammate Ravichandran Ashwin. Thus, fans applauded and hailed Axar Patel’s mind-blowing performance. They believe that he made a huge impact and was the main reason why India won the series 3-1.

Here is what fans had to say about Axar’s performance in the match today and in the series:

Proving to be the X factor for team India’s bowling and adding depth to the spin department, Axar left a strong impact.

After the impressive performance with the ball, Axar scored a crucial 43 in the fourth Test to prove his capabilities with the bat as well. Partnering with Washington Sundar proved to be fruitful as it helped India take a huge 160 runs to lead over England.

Getting a fifer in the second innings of the fourth Test was the icing on the cake for him as India ended up winning the fourth Test and have confirmed their spot in the World Test Championship finals against New Zealand.
