Asia Cup 2022: Gambhir Praises Bhuvneshwar Highly for His Efforts Against Pakistan


Asia Cup 2022: Bhuvneshwar Kumar received high accolades from former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir for his performance in the Asia Cup 2022 match against Pakistan. On August 28, the game was held at the Dubai International Stadium.

Even for Bhuvi, the trip up until this point has been filled with ups and downs. Bhuvneshwar’s position in the team was debated following his awful performance in the T20 World Cup 2021. Dropping him from the side was supported by many. Some individuals also thought the right-arm seamer was done.

The management supported him and offered him an opportunity in the T20Is even though he lost his spot in the ODI team. Bhuvneshwar’s bowling style has significantly evolved since then. In practically every game with the ball, he has given India a start. Moreover, he has excelled at death overs.

During India’s match against Pakistan in Asia Cup, the veteran Indian pacer once more held firm for his team. He caused difficulties for the opposition with his short balls and swing. Additionally, he assisted his team in bundling out their sworn rivals for just 147 runs.

Bhuvi gave his side the best possible start by first removing Babar Azam and then taking three more wickets in this year’s Asia Cup match against Pakistan. The seasoned bowler emerged with figures of 4/26. Additionally, this was the best performance by an Indian bowler against Pakistan in T20Is​.

In a Star Sports discussion, Gautam Gambhir slammed those who criticized Bhuvneshwar for his subpar performances. He praised him for his swing bowling as well. He discussed how effective Bhuvi has been as he begins to swing the ball.

Gambhir also called out a notion that was popular as being complete nonsense. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was advised to bowl between 135 and 140 kph if he wants to play international cricket.

According to the World Cup winner, T20 batters don’t mind the pace as much as they detest playing swing. This makes Bhuvneshwar Kumar an extremely lethal bowler, in his opinion. Since Bhuvi has always been a strong bowler at the death, Gambhir believes he will be very effective up until he swings the new ball.

The 40-year-old claimed that Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami were more gifted than Bhuvneshwar. He is successful, though, since he is aware of his limitations and has several game plans.

Given his current form, Bhuvneshwar is projected to be a key player for his team at the Asia Cup 2022. He will also be very important in the T20 World Cup in 2022. He will next be seen in action when India and Hong Kong square off. The game is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, August 31.
