Bhuvneshwar Kumar has coped the brunt for his below par bowling performance in the Asia Cup 2022 where he was carted for runs in the death overs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s lines and lengths have been poor in the death overs and had to bear the irk of frustrated cricket fans.
He also had a series to forget against Australia as he was plundered at the death, giving away 91 runs from 7 overs that he bowled at a high economy rate of 13. He has not been in good form which has left everyone to question Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s form in the upcoming 20-20 World Cup.
Meanwhile, former Indian pace bowler, S Sreesanth has come out in support of India’s ace of pace Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He said that everyone goes through a bad patch and feels that Bhuvneshwar Kumar will come back to good form.
“Even if you bowl well, 60–70 percent of your balls will get hit. It works out occasionally and other times, it doesn’t,” Hindustan Times quoted Sreesanth as saying. “I have a lot of faith in his skill and ability to swing the ball. Bhuvneshwar has also got the ability to bowl a slower back-of-the-length ball and a knuckleball. On Australian pitches, he will benefit if he changes his speed on the hard, bouncy wickets,” he further added.
Sreesanth has said that Bhuvneshwar Kumar should believe in his own abilities and be headstrong about oneself.
“Sometimes you become perplexed. You sometimes watch a lot of videos and read a lot. You often hear a lot of points of view on commentary.” he said.
“Everyone experiences such a phase; even I have done it. However, you must have faith in the incredible skill that brought you to this position and crowned you king. You must have faith in a higher power and confidence in your work ethics,” Sreesanth concluded.
