Maiden ODI fifty

All-rounder Axar Patel slammed his maiden
ODI half-century (35-ball 64*) to power India
to a two-wicket win against West Indies in the
second outing.


Axar slammed five sixes overall, now the
most by an India batter at number seven or
lower in a successful ODI run-chase.


In 2005, MS Dhoni smashed three sixes
to propel India to a four-wicket win against Zimbabwe. Nearly 17 years later, Axar broke Dhoni's record by hammering five sixes.

Another milestone

Axar brought up his half-century in 27 balls,
now the second-fastest for India in ODIs
against WI. Kapil Dev had scored a fifty in
22 deliveries.


Axar has represented India in 40 ODIs, 23
T20Is, and six Tests. He has slammed 581
international runs (two fifties). He has taken
101 wickets at 24.60.
