A small bungalow in the little village of Nadiad, 60 km from Ahmedabad, relates the full story of Axar Patel or Akshar Patel. Patel’s tale is best recounted by the residents of this house, who include a sick father and a mother who never wanted him to play cricket as she was concerned he would get injured. Axar’s home, dubbed “Rajkiran,” is easy to locate. The left-arm spinner made his Test debut with a five-wicket haul in Chennai. He is an Indian international cricketer who plays for the Indian cricket team in all formats and also plays for Gujarat in domestic cricket. In this blog, we will look at Axar Patel career, stats, wife, IPL, etc.
