Bhuvneshwar Kumar did not allow 13 runs in the last over.
In the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) needed 18 runs from 12 balls to win. But while being the world’s most explosive batsman at the crease, Virat Kohli’s team RCB had to face defeat by four runs. After this victory of SRH, which had a disappointing performance in this season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021), it is clear that the team’s batting may have failed, but the bowlers are still alive. In this match, Bhuvneshwar Kumar prevented RCB’s batsmen from scoring the required 13 runs in the last over of the innings and gave the team victory. While batsmen like AB de Villiers were present at the crease.
Bhuvneshwar had to stop RCB from scoring 13 runs in the last over. Only one run was scored off the first three balls, but de Villiers hit a six on the fourth ball. The fifth ball again went blank and only one run was scored off the last ball, which led Sunrisers to victory. Bhuvneshwar Kumar of Jeet said that when de Villiers was batting, I was trying to bowl a wide yorker. I bowled a yorker in front of the wicket, on which AB hit a six. Then I bowled a wide yorker.
Bhuvneshwar’s color has been fading this season
So far this season of IPL, Bhuvneshwar was not seen in any special color. But he left his mark in the thrilling match against RCB. Bhuvneshwar Kumar took one wicket for 25 runs in four overs.
