Indian stalwart bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who bowled no ball after 6 years
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been one of the consistent performers for the Indian team in recent years. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has contributed in many ways to this Indian cricket. He is currently one of the senior bowlers in the Indian pace attack. He is one of the few bowlers for India who can swing the ball appreciably. The batsman feels very hard to pick his knuckleball variation, especially in-depth overs.
Once again, the swing king Bhuvneshwar Kumar has shown his consistency. It was almost after six years; he bowled a no-ball. This record of his shows his remarkable consistency in bowling for India. The experienced player Bhuvneshwar Kumar finally bowled a no-ball against Sri Lanka during the second ODI at Colombo on Tuesday.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled 3093 deliveries in international cricket without bowling a single no-ball. The no-ball can affect the bowler’s rhythm, it can release the pressure on the batsman, and on some occasions, it can entirely change the course of the game.
The last time Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled a no-ball was in the year 2015. It has been more than five years since he maintained his consistency.
In the second ODI against Sri Lanka at Colombo Bhuvneshwar Kumar had bowling figures of 3-54 in his 10 overs. Adding to which he had also made valuable contributions with the bat. He along with Deepak Chahar stitched together an unbroken 84 runs partnership for the 8th wicket that helped India win by a very narrow margin. Which not only made India win the match, but also the ODI series against Sri Lanka.
It also marks India’s ninth consecutive series win against Sri Lanka. This clearly shows that India has very much dominated Sri Lanka in recent times. While India played with senior players and experienced ones in the previous series, this time it was future stars of Indian cricket who made India win the ODI series against Sri Lanka.
