Axar Patel Or Ravindra Jadeja? Aakash Chopra Picks His Choice For 2024 T20 World Cup

Star Indian all-rounder Axar Patel has been part of the 2023 ODI World Cup squad. However, he had to step aside due to a left quadriceps strain, making way for Ravichandran Ashwin. Since his comeback, Patel has showcased outstanding performance in T20 cricket and has secured a position in the team.

After earning the Player of the Match title in the second T20I against Afghanistan, the 29-year-old was endorsed by former cricketer Aakash Chopra as a potential choice over Ravindra Jadeja for India in the upcoming T20 World Cup. Despite acknowledging Jadeja’s vice-captaincy during the South Africa tour, Chopra expressed a preference for Axar Patel at present.

While having a conversation on his official YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra said,”Axar Patel was given the Player of the Match award. I am scared when Axar gets the Player of the Match because he was dropped when he got two successive Player of the Match awards last time. They didn’t take him to South Africa and don’t know what they will do now as well.”

“There is no clarity yet whether Ravindra Jadeja or Axar Patel is your first spinner who can bat at No. 7. It’s Axar Patel in my book. However, because the Indian team made Jaddu the vice-captain in the last series, maybe the team is thinking about Ravindra Jadeja,” the former India opener added.
