Axar’s incoming darter hands Maxwell a first-ball duck

Left-arm spinner Axar Patel castled Glenn Maxwell for a golden duck in the second match of the three-match T20I series at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Nagpur on Friday. On the final ball of the 2nd over, Axar delivered a length ball angling in typically from round the wicket. Maxwell backed away, made room to free his arms and was looking to smash the ball away, but the inward movement of the ball foxed his heave and the stumps were dismantled.

Axar was the lone ranger for India’s bowling unit in the series opener as he ended his spell with figures of 4-0-17-3.
