Many legendary cricketers are surprised to see his batting slot and feel he should bat up the order. Even the team management of the franchise has spoken about promoting the southpaw, but nothing has been done in this regard.
In the last game against Mumbai Indians, Axar slammed a fifty at a strike rate of over 200, but the Capitals were bowled out for 172 in 19.4 overs.
The home franchise lost the game by 6 wickets to register 4th defeat in as many games.
Harbhajan Singh hits out at Ricky Ponting, Sourav Ganguly, Ajit Agarkar and Pravin Amre for wasting Patel.
“Axar Patel should bat up the order. Despite the presence of Ponting, Ganguly, Agarkar and Amre, Axar is batting in the wrong position. Something is wrong with the team, which these big legends cannot solve. It is surprising,” said Harbhajan Singh.
