This dreaded player will announce his retirement as soon as Asia Cup 2023 ends, he has already taken such a decision at the age of 29!
Asian Cup 2023: The journey of the Indian team in Asia Cup 2023 has been very good. After sharing points with Pakistan in the group stage matches, India started the tournament on a good note by defeating Nepal. After this, with tremendous victories over Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Super 4, it has confirmed its place in the final (Asia Cup 2023). Therefore, things have been good for Team India so far but this Asia Cup has been very disappointing for one player.
Not getting a place in the playing XI
The Indian team for Asia Cup 2023 also includes a player for whom there is no place in the team’s playing XI. In this tournament he is mostly seen giving water. There is nothing more disappointing for a player than being out of the playing XI despite being in the team. We are talking about Axar Patel.
Got a chance in the fourth match
In the fourth match of Asia Cup 2023, Akshar Patel got a place in the Indian playing XI against Sri Lanka in Team India’s playing XI because the pitch was spinning more than required. If it had been a normal pitch then it would have been difficult for him to make a place in the team. However, Akshar could not take advantage of this opportunity either. While batting, he certainly played an important inning of 26 runs but in a way, he failed in bowling, which was more required in the match. Despite giving away 29 runs in 5 overs on a spinning pitch in a low-scoring match, they did not get wickets.
Can take retirement!
This is not the first time that Akshar Patel is not getting a place in the playing XI. He has had to face this problem since the beginning of his career. This all-rounder, who started his career in 2014, has so far been able to play only 12 Tests, 53 ODIs and 45 T20 matches. Less opportunities could become a reason for retirement for this 29 year old player.
