Indian Test team captain Virat Kohli has made a big prediction about a player of the team. Kohli believes that the team's spin all-rounder Axar Patel can play cricket for India for a long time if he fully focuses on his fitness. Let us tell you that in the Mumbai Test match, Axar Patel contributed well to the team not only with the ball but also with the bat. He played an important innings of 52 runs in the first innings, while in the second innings he scored 41 not out off 26 balls with the help of 4 sixes and 3 fours.
After registering a 1-0 win in the two-match Test series against New Zealand, Virat Kohli said in a press conference that Axar is clearly an all-round cricketer and his skills provide a great balance to any team. Due to his ability, he has been performing well for a long time when he gets a chance in T20 and Test cricket. The best part is that he is adapting his game according to the requirement of the format. I think it's a good sign and if he can keep his fitness level up and keep working on his game, he has the potential to play for India for a long time. This is basically the need of the hour in today's cricket as well.
Virat Kohli further said that if you cannot maintain your fitness level then it becomes more difficult to perform well. Akshar is going through a wonderful phase at the moment and I wish him all the success. I hope he stays fit and hungry to play for a long time. At the same time, Kohli said about Mayank Agarwal's batting that he has shown a great character to play at this level for a long time. We all have gone through that phase in our careers where we have done well and Mayank is doing the same right now. He is definitely an asset to Team India and these innings will help him continue to perform for India in the coming year. Such an innings will also boost his confidence.
