Indian team’s star fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar is known for his swing bowling. He is one of the most successful bowlers of Team India at the present time. No one has been able to snatch Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s fame in T20 cricket so far.
Kumar is credited for 62 percent of India’s victory in a match, if he manages to take at least two wickets in the powerplay over. But did you know that the 32-year-old has been trolled for calling his ‘swing bowling’ a spin ball?
Bhuvneshwar Kumar gets trolled for swing
Actually, cricket match has become a means of trolling for the fans along with entertainment. This tradition is no longer there. Social media has emerged as a vocal voice for cricket fans ever since modern cricket became the twin of technology. During the match, the performance of the players is accounted for by the coach and captain as well as on social media.
However, there is a significant difference in this meeting. Coaches and captains understand the mistakes of the players during the match and encourage them to correct them, while the players are trolled in the meetings on social media. This shakes their confidence.
Actually, Indian cricketer Bhuvneshwar Kumar has also become a victim of this meeting on social media. Kumar was ridiculed in this ‘sitting’ by calling him a spin bowler instead of a swing bowler. At the same time, in the match against Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2022, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has given a befitting reply to the trollers with his superb bowling.
Pakistan was blown away with its swing bowling
Actually, Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled brilliantly in his T20 career in the match against Pakistan. He took four wickets for just 26 runs in the spell of four overs. He dismissed Pakistani batsmen Babar Azam, Asif Ali, S Khan and Naseem Shah.
After his excellent bowling, Kumar said, “Before bowling the first ball, I thought it was going to swing. There was no swing but there was a little bounce. We knew we had to bowl wicket by wicket, so the plan was to bowl short. The pitch was a bit skid, and to be honest, 147 means we conceded too many runs in the end.”
