T20 cricket often falls heavily on the bowlers. Whether it is a fast bowler or a spinner, it is not easy for anyone to avoid hitting the batsmen. No matter how experienced or brand new the bowler is, there is little chance of relief in this format. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (Bhuvneshwar Kumar) He is one of those bowlers who have mastered this work. The veteran Indian pacer has long been known for his economical and disciplined bowling in T20 cricket (international and IPL). Yet sometimes there comes a day when nothing goes according to plan. Something similar for Bhuvneshwar in IPL 2022 (IPL 2022) happened in Sunrisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans (SRH vs GT) In the first over, Bhuvneshwar presented such a sight of deviating bowling that a very poor record was registered against him.
Sunrisers bowled first in the match played at DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Monday 11th April and as usual, star pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar started the bowling for the team. Bhuvneshwar seems to have regained his old momentum in recent times and is bowling better than in the last two years. In such a situation, it was difficult to believe what was seen in the first over of this match.
Bhuvi strays from the line in the very first over
On the very first ball of Bhuvneshwar, Gujarat opener Matthew Wade’s bat hit the edge and the ball went for 4 runs. Everything was fine till now, but after that Bhuvneshwar deviated badly from his line. His next ball was outside the leg stump, which the umpire gave wide and the keeper could not stop. That is, 4 more runs came with the wide.
There was still more spectacle left. The third ball of the over was very much outside the off-stump, on which 1 run of wide was found. Bhuvi again made the same mistake on the fifth ball and again 4 extra runs with a wide.
Jadeja’s 10-year-old record demolished
In this way, Gujarat got a total of 17 runs from the very first over, out of which 11 runs came only in the form of wide. This is where a poor record climbed on Bhuvneshwar’s impressive career. Bhuvneshwar has now become the highest run-scorer on wide in an over in IPL. In the case of this poor record, Bhuvi broke the 10-year-old record of Ravindra Jadeja. Jadeja gave 10 runs from wide in an over against Rajasthan in 2012. This record of Jadeja was equaled by Mohammad Siraj of Royal Challengers Bangalore in the current season itself. He gave 10 runs in wide against Punjab Kings. By the way, Bhuvi took 2 wickets in this match while spending 37 runs in 4 overs.
