Bhuvneshwar Kumar is a senior bowler who has played for both India and Pakistan. Salman Butt, a former captain of Pakistan, believes that Bhuvneshwar Kumar is not a good option for Team India in the Twenty20 World Cup. During the current Asia Cup, Bhuvneshwar took 11 wickets but was responsible for the loss of a significant number of runs in the final overs.
On Thursday, he recorded a five-for during India’s match against Afghanistan, which was their penultimate game in the Super 4 stage. Butt believes that Bhuvneshwar does not have enough pace, which makes it simpler for batters to target him when the game is nearing its end. This is despite the fact that Bhuvneshwar is a very good bowler with the new ball.
“However, he is collecting wickets in the early overs despite the fact that he is allowing a lot of runs in the latter overs. The bowl is rocking back and forth here just a little bit (in UAE). However, good teams will easily be able to neutralise this much swing. Bowling was not a particularly challenging activity. The majority of the batters for Afghanistan are considered to be power hitters, and they hit through the lines.
They do not have the correct technique, which is why they were unable to counteract the swing. In the death overs, Bhuvneshwar had difficulty keeping pace. Because he lacks pace, batters are less likely to be intimidated by the opportunity to face him.
At the Twenty20 World Cup, I do not believe that he will be a beneficial choice for India, “Butt mentioned this during a conversation that was taking place on his YouTube channel.
After a lacklustre showing in the Super 4 stage, India was eliminated from contention for the Asia Cup final. This is an important point to note.
In the final match of the Super 4, which took place on Thursday, India triumphed over Afghanistan by a score of 101 runs.
After a long wait, Virat Kohli finally reached the century mark, blitzing 122 runs off 61 balls while remaining unbeaten. India limited Afghanistan to a score of 111 for eight in their final total after they had posted a total of 212 for two in 20 overs.
