Axar Patel Reveals Pant's Lighth earted Approach During Crucial Partnership

All-rounder Axar Patel, wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant, and pacer Mohammed Siraj opened up on their respective gameplans, which contributed to the six-run victory of India over Pakistan in their T20 World Cup match. Jasprit Bumrah's terrific three-wicket and a counter-attacking knock by Rishabh Pant powered the Indian cricket team to a narrow win at a packed Nassau County Stadium in the highly anticipated clash.

In a video posted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India, spinner Yuzvendra Chahal unveiled his latest episode of 'Chahal TV, featuring three players.

Chahal asked Axar about being promoted to number four in the batting order, and the bowling all-rounder said that things were made easy as Pant, who is also his skipper at the Delhi Capitals, was joking around and having fun between the deliveries.

Axar said, "There was no chance of planning when I came to know that I was going to go at four. When I went for the batting, it was easy for me. Our captain (Pant, DC captain) was not telling me anything about cricket. He was just joking around. He knew that I would become a little easy. He kept telling me something about every ball. I also talked to him, and it became a little easier. It was the same planning and nothing else.”
