Dubai: The T20 World Cup has started in UAE from 17 October. The performance of a player of Team India has been exposed just before the T20 World Cup. Poor performance of Indian fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been seen. Bhuvneshwar Kumar got a chance to play in the first warm-up match against England, but he disappointed. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was blown away by the England batsmen. Bhuvneshwar Kumar could not catch the momentum in this match, he conceded 54 runs in 4 overs. During this Bhuvi did not get a single wicket. After this poor performance of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, he did not deserve a place in Team India’s playing XI.
Doesn’t deserve a place in Team India
Shardul Thakur deserves a chance in the Playing 11 in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who is hit with both the ball and the bat. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been in bad shape in the slog overs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is looting runs at the rate of ten runs per over. There has been a significant decline in the performance of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s speed has also decreased. In such a situation, if Bhuvneshwar Kumar gets a chance in the main matches of the T20 World Cup, then he can become the reason for India’s defeat.
In the warm-up match against England, when Bhuvi came for the 17th and his third over, he gave 12 runs, then in the last over Bhuvi spent 21 runs. Overall Bhuvi spent 54 runs in 4 overs. After Bhuvneshwar’s performance in the recently concluded IPL, his selection was being publicly debated and many experts did not keep him in their team, but the selectors expressed confidence in him. Bhuvneshwar could take only six wickets in 42 overs he bowled in 11 matches. His economy rate was 7.97 and both these things do not match his level at all.
Fast bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah have been selected in the T20 World Cup. Looking at the performance of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, he does not get a place in the T20 World Cup team. There is neither any pace in Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s bowling nor can he create fear among the opposing batsmen with his bowling. In such a situation, the selectors have made a big mistake by not selecting strong bowlers like Mohammad Siraj and T Natarajan in the team of T20 World Cup.
Bhuvneshwar’s poor form worries India
Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s poor form is a matter of concern for Team India. With the T20 World Cup to be played in October, Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s poor performance can prove to be harmful for Team India. Team India is considered to be a strong contender for the 2021 T20 World Cup tournament to be held in UAE.
