In the ninth over of the second inning, Axar took Mitchell Marsh's catch with his non-dominant right hand and helped India take control of the match. Kuldeep Yadav placed a length ball onto the pads, Marsh pulled it behind the square where Axar made no mistake in taking the catch.

Speaking while honouring the medal, India fielding coach T Dilip showered praise on the Men in Blue for their commitment to every catch.

"Phenomenal effort, boys. Everyone, well done. When it comes to fielding in the Caribbean, we will always test our metal... from boundary to infield we covered every gap, but the masterpiece was the commitment for every catch that we have done. With this kind of determination, whether it's adjusting to the wind or speed in the outfield, we were top-notch. Lastly, we clearly show that we are here to dominate," T Dilip said.
