Dubai: The T20 World Cup is to begin from October 17 in the UAE, where the IPL tournament is currently being played. The performance of a player of Team India has been exposed just before the T20 World Cup. In the IPL match against Delhi Capitals on Wednesday, poor performance of Indian fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been seen. Bhuvneshwar Kumar plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL.
This player of Team India got exposed
Bhuvneshwar Kumar conceded 21 runs during the bowling of 3 overs in this match. Bhuvneshwar Kumar did not get a single wicket in this match. It seemed that none of the batsmen were facing any problem with Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s bowling. After the poor performance of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, now the questions are being raised that how the selectors took the risk by giving a chance to such a bowler in a big tournament like T20 World Cup, who is not in form at all nor is he getting any wicket.
Injustice to the best bowlers like Siraj and Natarajan
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.
T20 World Cup will start from October 17
