Bhuvneshwar Kumar can swing it in any conditions: Jos Buttler
After losing the game, the skipper of England, Jos Buttler shared a few words in the post-match presentation. "They bowled well with the new ball and put us under pressure. We couldn't get away from that point. We came back really well in the second half with the ball.
Probably a bit above par and they swung the ball consistently. Bhuvneshwar Kumar can swing it in any conditions. Certainly, the ball swung longer than I can remember in a T20 game.
Maybe we needed to hit one in the stands and stop that swing. We know the boys have the talent and we want to see them on the big stage," Jos Buttler was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
Besides, the old video of Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni has gone viral among the fans on social media platforms.
Moreover, the Indian skipper hailed MS Dhoni for changing his career and said, "I believe the decision to open in ODIs changed my career and it was a decision taken by MS Dhoni. I became a better batsman after that.
In fact, it helped me understand my game better, react better according to situations. With no disrespect to other great Indian captains, I was blessed to play under MS all these years.
His calmness in pressure situations helped us. He always led from the front. There won’t be one like him."
