Swing bowling is a very skilled art and few bowlers manage to swing the ball back and forth effectively and upset the batters. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is one such bowler and he showed it with a brilliant delivery shaping Jos Buttler, giving India their first breakthrough in the second set.
After losing their single Test to England, India are playing quality cricket against England in the first T20I. Beating first, the Indian team posted a decent total of 198/8 thanks to half a century of Hardik Pandya. Pandya scored 51 points on 33 balls while Suryakumar Yadav contributed with 39 points on 19 balls.
defend the target, Bhuvneshwar Kumar started the procedure as usual. However, he extracted the swing from the conditions and pulled off a great first for the team. The stimulator throws the first four balls away from Jason Roy who faced them. However, on the fourth ball in the inning, Joe Buttler was on strike and Bhuvneshwar threw a brilliant inswinger at Buttler. The batter had no idea how to approach such an unreal swing. The ball grazed his pads and crashed into the stumps to return the batter for a golden duck.
What a beauty of Bhuvi! WOW :O
