Delhi Capitals, who are currently perched on top of the points table, had reached their maiden final last season when the tournament was held entirely in the UAE.
India opted Umesh Yadav instead of Shardul Thakur. Axar Patel, Mayank Agarwal and Washington Sundar also failed to make the final squad
Axar Patel's exploits came in the so-called dust bowls in India, and he is unlikely to get a chance in England. But the all-rounder played down the role of 'conditions,' saying his 'bowling is different from others'
Handed the ball for the crucial over, Axar Patel conceded only seven runs against the marauding duo of David Warner and Kane Williamson and the paved the way for DC's win
Axar Patel had returned positive for the dreaded coronavirus on April 3 and was transferred to BCCI's designated medical facility after it was learnt that he showed mild symptoms.
Delhi Capitals' Axar Patel, 10 members of Wankhede stadium staff and six event managers have added to the growing list of positive cases in the Indian Premier League

Axar Patel (24-6-48-5), in company of Ravichandran Ashwin (22.5-4-47-5), literally blew England away in a session and half for a paltry 135 in 54.5 overs to complete a 3-1 rout

Ashwin (3/35) and Axar (3/28) shared the spoils during a session with England still needing 69 runs to avoid an embarrassing innings defeat that looks likely.
Washington Sundar showed composure beyond his years but missed out on a maiden Test hundred by 4 runs
The 21-year-old left-hander's 96 off 174 balls was as important as Rishabh Pant's second day hundred but a sudden tail-end collapse saw him stranded at the non-striker's end.
For India, spinners Axar Patel (26-7-68-4) and Ravichandran Ashwin (19.5-4-47-3) toyed with the England batsmen
