The discussion of the India-England Test March is going on all over the country and outside the country, especially in England at this time. Equally discussed is Akshar Patel, who is suffering the condition of England’s team in Ahmedabad.
The journey here was filled with many struggles for 28-year-old Akshar Rajeshbhai Patel. Today, they are getting the fruits of that hard work. Nadiad city is about 60 km from Ahmedabad city. This city is famous for its Sant Ram temple. And now a name has been added to its fame. Now people know this city as the home town of Akshar Patel.
Nadiad lives in a joint family in the city. According to one of his interviews, the father had the support of his cricketing career but his mother did not want it because he was afraid that his son might get hurt. When Akshar was 12 years old, the father asked him whether he wanted to play cricket or focus on his studies. Akshar chose cricket and his father immediately enrolled him in the cricket academy.
Debut in 2015 but took 6 years to make a name
Very few people know that Akshar made his one-day debut in the Indian team in 2014, but it took him a while to get fame. Now when he is glowing, it shines so that people will never forget his name. 28-year-old Akshar played his first ODI against Bangladesh on 15 June 2014. He was then selected for the 15 member team of the World Cup to be held in Australia in 2015. That year India reached the semi-finals of the World Cup, but Akshar did not get a chance to show Jauhar with bowling.
When the selection for IPL happened
In 2013, Akshar was bought by the team of Mumbai Indians. 2014 was a good year for him, he took 17 wickets while playing for Punjab. From 2014 to 2018, he played for Punjab. In this one year he got a place in the team of Gujarat Lion. After that he was bought by the Delhi team in 2019 and since then he has been winning the match to Delhi.
When the principal accidentally changed the name
His name may be Akshar Patel, but he writes Axar in English. His name is also in the records. His name till school was Akshar but his principal mistakenly changed Akshar to Axar and from then on he started writing the same name.
Jayasuriya of Nadiya
He was given this nickname after the legendary former Sri Lankan all-rounder Sanath Jayasuriya. Since childhood, he was called Jayasuriya after seeing his spin and batting style on the cricket field. At the same time, there was a glimpse of this in the Chennai Test when wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant was seen calling him by the same name in the stump mic.
