Asia Cup 2022: This bowler was responsible for India's exit from Asia Cup, everyone's hopes were dashed
Newz Fast, New Delhi: After the defeat of Team India, the whole story has changed. Two overs of the ex-star Indian bowler was responsible for India's exit from the Asia Cup.
Team India was considered a contender to win the Asia Cup 2022 tournament. But faced embarrassing defeats against Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Super-4.
After the defeat of Team India, the whole story has changed. Two overs of the ex-star Indian bowler was responsible for India's exit from the Asia Cup.
This player looted a lot of runs
India's most experienced bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has become a big weakness in the Asia Cup. He plundered runs against the opposing batsmen. Bhuvneshwar Kumar looted runs like water in the death overs.
Team India had to pay the brunt of his poor form by being out of the Asia Cup. The magic of his swing balls did not work in the Asia Cup.
Even now there is a demand to drop him from the Indian team. Bhuvneshwar Kumar's 2 overs has become the biggest reason for Team India's defeat.
Team sinks against Sri Lanka
Bhuvneshwar Kumar proved to be very expensive against Sri Lanka. He proved utterly unsuccessful in stopping the runs. Sri Lanka needed 21 runs in the last two overs against India.
Then captain Rohit Sharma handed the 19th over to his most experienced bowler, but Bhuvneshwar Kumar deviated completely from the line length and gave away 14 runs and fixed the defeat of Team India.
He became the biggest culprit in the defeat against Sri Lanka. Against Sri Lanka, Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave 30 runs in four overs and could not take a single wicket.
Flop against Pakistan
Bhuvneshwar Kumar made the same mistake in the 19th over against Pakistan. At one point in the Super-4 match against Pakistan, Team India was seen moving towards victory.
But in the 19th over, Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave 19 runs and the match went out of the hands of Team India. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is bowling short pitch deliveries even in the death overs.
Had he not bowled in the 19th over against Pakistan and Sri Lanka, perhaps the outcome of the match could have been different.
