Delhi Capitals (DC) achieved two consecutive victories to secure first place in the points ladder Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. The Rishabh Pant-led side has registered hard wins against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) in their last two games, in which left-arm spinner Axar Patel has excelled. Axar was the player of the match for Capitals in both games. He also reached a milestone with his two consecutive man-of-the-match awards, becoming the first spinner to do so in IPL since 2011.

“The feeling of becoming the first spinner to win consecutive MOTM awards in IPL since 2011,” Delhi Capitals tweeted with a smiling image of Axar Patel.

Axar took two wickets and gave away just 18 runs in his four overs against Chennai Super Kings to help Delhi Capitals limit the MS Dhoni team to 136 runs for five in their allotted 20 overs. Delhi won the match in the final by three wickets to be at the top of the points ladder.

The 27-year-old was also the most striking player of his team in their clash with defending champions Mumbai Indians. Delhi Capitals, chasing 130 runs for the win, came over the game in the final over of the match.


In that match, Axar Patel scored figures of three for 21 runs in his quota of four overs.

The left-arm spinner is also in the Indian squad for next month’s T20 World Cup, and with such performances, Virat Kohli and the team management can think of giving him a place in the last XI.
