'Bapu' Memes Flood on Internet

India convincingly defeated England in the second semi-final of the T20 World Cup on Thursday in Guyana, marking a significant redemption from their previous loss to the same opponent at this stage two years ago. The spin duo of Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav proved to be the game-changers, claiming a total of six crucial wickets that propelled India into the final. Axar’s stellar performance, highlighted by figures of 3/23, dismantled England’s top-order, earning him accolades from both fans and cricket pundits alike. Looking ahead, India will now set their sights on the final clash against South Africa on Saturday in Barbados.

47 (31) in the T20 World Cup Final. Came in when India lost 3 early wickets, he built the innings with Virat. The Bapu show in Barbados, an unfortunate end to his knock.

“He’s a picture of calmness and composure, whether he’s batting or bowling. Even in high-pressure situations, he remains unfazed, which often brings out the best in him,” observed Kaif in an interview.

Axar Patel demonstrated this composed demeanor right from the start. His first ball from Rabada was effortlessly guided to the square-leg boundary, subtly asserting his presence. Throughout the Powerplay, he faced Markram’s deliveries with finesse, adding six runs discreetly yet effectively. The turning point came in the 8th over when Axar seized an opportunity. A mighty slog-swept six off Markram not only showcased his intent but also aligned with India’s strategic plan: Kohli steadying the ship while Axar unleashed his aggression.

For Axar, this journey to the top has been unexpected yet deeply satisfying. Initially hesitant about bowling in his youth, he now finds himself on cricket’s grandest stage, showcasing his left-arm spin for Team India. His selection in the final 15-member squad was a topic of debate, with Washington Sundar also in contention. However, the selectors’ decision to trust Axar proved pivotal, recognizing his ability to perform when it counts the most.
