The Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar recently came up with a hilarious answer when he was questioned about India’s strategy of bowling to South African batter David Miller in 2nd T20I at the Barabati Stadium in Cuttack on Sunday. Miller was the Player of the Match in South Africa’s record 212-run chase in the series opening clash in New Delhi. The left-hander smashed an unbeaten 64 off 31 balls with five sixes to help the visitors reach their highest successful chase in T20Is with 5 balls to spare.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar jokes about David Miller
During the pre-match press conference on Saturday, when asked about Miller, Bhuvneshwar said that he would prefer if South Africa decide to drop Miller from the next match as he followed it up by a big laugh. Bhuvneshwar who was taken apart by Miller in the 18th over of the match, said it is indeed difficult to bowl to the left-hander considering the kind of form he is in.
“It is difficult (bowling to Miller). He is in such good form. Main toh chahunga South Africa unhe drop kar de par wo aisa karenge nahi (I would want South Africa to drop him but they would not do so (laughs). He batted so well in the IPL, we know his calibre. Bowling to him would be a challenge,” he said.
The veteran right-arm seamer got the early breakthrough of Temba Bavuma on Thursday but went for runs at the death admitted that bowling wasn’t up to the mark in the first match but promised to come back strong in the next outing. India will face South Africa in the 2nd T20I on Sunday, June 12.
