- Indian bowlers struggle during New Zealand’s first innings in the WTC final

- Bhuvi not selected in Indian team for WTC final and tour of England
New DelhiTeam India’s experienced fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar suddenly started trending on Twitter. This is because the performance of the Indian fast bowlers against New Zealand in the World Test Championship final was very disappointing. Let us inform that in the WTC final released in Southampton, Team India’s first innings was all out for 217 runs. In response, New Zealand made a score of 101/2 till the stumps on the third day. New Zealand’s team is currently 16 runs behind India’s score with 8 wickets remaining.
The Indian team extended its innings on the third day with a score of 143/3. Indian captain Virat Kohli (44) could not increase his score and was out lbw off the ball of Kyle Jameson. Jamieson made Rishabh Pant (4) his next victim. Neil Wegener then stopped Ajinkya Rahane (49) from scoring a half-century. Ravichandran Ashwin (22) and Ravindra Jadeja (15) could not contribute much with the bat and Team India’s last seven wickets fell within just 61 runs.
In reply, New Zealand got off to a great start with a partnership of 70 runs by openers Devon Conway and Tom Latham. The Indian team’s fast bowlers failed to trouble both the batsmen during this period. Ashwin gave India the first breakthrough in the 35th over of New Zealand’s innings. He made Tom Latham (30) his victim. While Kyle Jameson and Neil Wegner bowled well, the Indian fast bowlers struggled.
Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma did get some swing, but Jasprit Bumrah proved to be completely lackluster. In such a situation, Indian cricket fans missed Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who is considered one of the best swing bowlers in the world. Fans hoped that if Bhuvi was here, the New Zealand batsmen would have been scared of his balls.
Some tweets for Bhuvneshwar Kumar
To recall, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was not included in the Indian team for the WTC finals and the tour of England. India had Bumrah, Ishant, Shami and Mohammad Siraj present. However, Bhuvneshwar Kumar will now be seen in cricket action in Sri Lanka, where the Indian team will go to play a limited overs series next month. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been made the vice-captain of the Indian team for the Sri Lanka tour.
