Axar Patel, the bowling all-rounder from Gujarat, had earned his maiden IPL contract with Mumbai Indians in 2013, and a switch to KXIP the following season made him a household name in the competition in the years that followed. After being a regular in the KXIP line-up, Axar was snapped up by Delhi Capitals for a whopping Rs 5 crore at the IPL auctions ahead of the 2019 season, making him the second most expensive player for the franchise. He was later retained by the Delhi franchise for the subsequent three IPL seasons. He can bat and add vital runs, he can keep things tight with the ball and he can field well. Axar Patel has been one of the solid performers for the Indian team and will be one of the vital cogs in DC’s wheel as they look to win their first IPL title.
