Narrating one such incident, Axar Patel talked about how during the 2021 IPL in Dubai, he wore a jersey with his wife's name after completing a fielding session. After cleaning up, he took out the only shirt from his bag which felt a bit tight. Later he found it was his wife’s. 

Patel said, “I had just come back from fielding in the scorching heat of Dubai… I was sweating profusely. After cleaning myself, I took out the only t-shirt left in my bag. The t-shirt felt too tight… I thought after all the gyming, my body has pumped up and the t-shirt doesn’t fit me anymore. I asked someone to check whose name was written on the back… they said it’s Meha’s jersey (laughs).”
