Tiripano to Patel, SIX runs, the bowler misses his length and Axar probably finishes the game. Too full on off, in the slot and Axar smashes it straight back over the bowler. Goes over the long-off boundary. Massive hit, what a moment in the game

Tiripano to Patel, FOUR runs, too predictable that length. Short and wide, Axar slices the ball past point. The fielder scurries across but cannot haul it in

Muzarabani to Patel, SIX runs, huge. Absolutely massive. Overpitched on off, right in the slot for Axar who stays in his crease and hammers the ball over long-on. Biff

Sikandar Raza to Jadhav, SIX runs, smashed. Use of the feet, jadhav gets to the pitch of the ball and then clobbers the heave way over long-on. Too much flight and Jadhav was able to get under that. Shot! Out of the ground
