Not just the regularity in his bowling. He He has also impressed a lot. He has been throwing very few half-volley or full-toss balls. With this he has been very successful on such pitches. I think his length and accuracy are his biggest strengths. “
Letter ‘stock ball’
Ever since Akshar Patel made his debut in Test cricket. His stock ball has dominated the cricket world a lot. Even England’s batsmen cannot understand this mysterious ball of Akshar. Which is going straight after eating tipa from the same action and angle at the same place and sometimes taking a turn. Which the English bowlers are not able to read and on the pitch which helps spin, this ball has proved to be the major weapon of the letter.
Axar Stock Ball Seam Position
About which Maninder Singh went on to say, “Akshar’s horizontal (horizon) seam position (going from short leg to point direction) is being very useful on these pitches. So that his ball is going straight from the same seam position. “What we are calling their major variation is the stock ball. While the same ball is also being turned at a later time. With this ball, Akshar has troubled the England batsmen a lot.”
