Rattled by Gavaskar’s criticism, Axar hopes to prove himself

Axar Patel has taken Sunil Gavaskar’s stinging criticism in his stride and says he is determined to prove the former India captain wrong with consistent performances, starting with the five ODIs in Australia next month.

“I was taken aback to be honest. I guess anyone would be, if it comes from somebody of the stature of Gavaskar sir. He is a legend of the game. But then I thought everyone in the game including Sachin Tendulkar had to face criticism at some point. 

“So I took it in my stride. I am sure sir (Gavaskar) will be happy if I can him prove him wrong,” Patel said from Alur where he is playing in the Vijay Hazare Trophy for Gujarat.
