Virat Kohli lauds Axar Patel, hints he might be part of WC plans

Ranchi: Impressed with rookie Axar Patel’s all-round performance, India’s stand-in skipper Virat Kohli has hinted that the left-arm spinner could be preferred in the side for next year’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Patel’s emergence as an all-rounder in the just-concluded ODI series against Sri Lanka means that Ravichandran Ashwin is no more an automatic choice for the only spinner’s slot.

“Hopefully if he (Patel) keeps performing like that and shows his composure, he will probably be preferred over a couple of other people in the batting order. You never know when that change arrives. All I can say is I’m happy for him.
