IND vs SL – “There Is No Tempo”: Pakistan Nice Wasim Akram On Bhuvneshwar Kumar Conceding 14 In One Over vs SL | Cricket Information
With two straight losses in two matches within the Asia Cup Tremendous 4 stage, India are getting ready to exit. Their destiny is not in their very own fingers. If Pakistan beat Afghanistan on Wednesday, they are going to be out of the ultimate rivalry. On Wednesday, India skipper Rohit Sharma scored a scintillating 41-ball 72 but it surely went in useless as India did not defend a goal of 174. Needing 21 in 12 balls, Sri Lanka scored 14 runs off the penultimate over bowled by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, nearly sealing it of their favour. After the match, former Pakistan nice Wasim Akram analysed what went incorrect for Bhuvneshwar within the nineteenth over.
“Bhuvi is an excellent bowler. Do not get me incorrect however there isn’t a tempo. In T20, when you do not have tempo, particularly on this type of pitch, he is a medium pacer, simply perhaps over medium pacer…135 (kmph). You want 140 (kmph) plus bowler like Jasprit Bumrah within the aspect. When he comes into the squad, you’ll have two of the most effective bowlers to bowl the final overs. And also you want common bowlers, who can bowl on the demise. You may’t decide up somebody out of the hand. It is unattainable to bowl, in case you are not used to the stress,” Wasim Akram stated on Star Sports activities.
Chasing what appeared like a par rating on the innings break, the Sri Lankans have been off to a blazing begin with openers Kusal Mendis (57 off 37 balls) and Pathum Nissanka (52 off 37 balls) placing on 91 runs at a brisk charge.
The fifty was up within the sixth over with each batters often discovering the gaps and the boundaries with consummate ease, placing large stress on the Indian bowling assault that appeared clueless in opposition to the optimistic method adopted by the 2 Lankan batters.
Nevertheless, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal had different concepts as he struck twice within the twelfth over to place the brakes on Sri Lanka’s march.
Within the first ball of the following over, Sri Lanka suffered a physique blow as Chahal bought the large wicket of Mendis, who was trapped lbw in entrance of the wicket.
However Sri Lanka skipper Dasun Shanaka and (33 not out) and Bhanuka Rajapaksa (25 not out) remained until the top to finish the duty for his or her staff with a match-winning, fifth-wicket partnership of 64 runs.
