After spending almost three weeks in a medical care facility in Mumbai, Delhi Capitals all-rounder Axar Patel has recovered from coronavirus. He was tested Covid-19 positive on April 3 but has now rejoined the Delhi squad in Chennai. Axar tested negative twice in two days as per India Premier League 2021 SOPs and has fully recovered. He served a strict 10-day quarantine before going through two rounds of testing again.

The franchise posted a video on social media showing Axar ’s reaction after being out of quarantine. The video also captured the reactions of his teammates. Axar was seen moving around the team hotel, as he jokingly says that he needs a saloon before he can shoot a video. After which, he is seen in Ishant Sharma’s room, who hugged Axar Patel as he returned to the squad. Ishant said that Axar hugged him as if they were meeting after ages. He just wanted to hug everyone and while doing the same he added, “just looking at people is making him happy,” Then he went on to meet his other Delhi teammates.

Axar's all-round skills offer Delhi a good balance as he can provide depth in the batting, too. Delhi Capitals, who are currently third on the points table, fielded uncapped Indian all-rounder Lalit Yadav in their last two matches. However, it is likely the franchise will allow Patel a bit more time to recover and train considering he has not played since March 12. The Capitals play their next game on April 25 against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Chennai.
