Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Senior Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar is once again in the headlines of social media after another failure in the third of the three-match T20I series against Australia. The 32-year-old is struggling with the form for the last couple of days. He had very poor outings in the crucial 19th over of the two crucial matches in the Asia Cup 2022 against Pakistan and then Sri Lanka.

Later on, his poor form continued in the bilateral series against Australia. He leaked 16 runs off the 19th over in the first match of the series against Australia. And today, in the last match of the series, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was introduced into the attack by skipper Rohit Sharma in the 18th over of the Australian innings.

It was just another day of Bhuvneshwar Kumar failed miserably to restrict the runs. He leaked 39 runs in the three overs he bowled and could scalp only one wicket of Cameron Green.

Indian cricket fans took no time in trolling the Meerut-based pacer. They took to Twitter for criticizing the management to give continuous chances to the speedster even after a string of poor performances.

Here’s how fans reacted to Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s performance:

Talking furthermore about the match, then the opening pair of skipper Aaron Finch and Cameron Green provided a good start of 44 runs for the first wicket in only 3.3 overs. Green smashed a brilliant half-century knock of 52 runs off just 21 balls with seven boundaries and three sixes to his name.

Other than him, young batter Tim David also scored a blistering 54 runs off just 27 balls with two boundaries and four sixes on his credit.

On the backs of these brilliant knocks, the visitors have posted a decent total of 186 runs for the loss of seven wickets in the allotted 20 overs. Axar Patel ended up as the highest wicket-taker for India as he scalped three wickets by conceding 33 runs in his quota of four overs. Other than him, Yuzvendra Chahal, Harshal Patel, and senior pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar also scalped one wicket each.

While chasing the target, India has scored 20 runs for the loss of one wicket having skipper Rohit Sharma and senior Virat Kohli in the middle on the individual scores of eight and five runs respectively. KL Rahul failed once again and fell prey to Daniel Sams on the last ball of the first over.
