Bhuvneshwar Kumar took a five-wicket haul in the last game of the Asia Cup 2022 against Afghanistan but he was very expensive in the death overs. Pakistan and Sri Lanka batters went after him and the veteran ended up conceding a lot of runs.
Despite Bhuvneshwar’s fifer in India’s final ‘Super 4’ match, former Pakistan skipper Salman Butt feels the pacer will struggle in Australia, as batters are not afraid of him.
“He is conceding a lot of runs in the death overs. Good teams will easily handle his swing bowling. The batters are not afraid of him. Afghanistan batsmen are power hitters. They don’t have proper technique, and that’s why they couldn’t negate the swing,” Butt said on his YouTube channel.
“He struggled with the pace in last overs. He doesn’t have pace and that’s why batters love his kind of bowling. I don’t think he will be a good option for India at the T20 World Cup,” he added.
