In T20I cricket, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has struggled as the veteran Indian bowler has not been able to perform as well as he once did for India in the dying overs. The experienced fast bowler struggled under pressure in the Asian Cup Super 4 matches against Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
On 20 September, in the opening T20I of a three-game run against Australia at Mohali, Bhuvneshwar allowed 52 runs to be scored without taking a wicket.

As the visitors successfully chased 209, no other Indian bowlers were able to hold back the Australian batters except Axar Patel.
For the third time in a row, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was unable to score in the 19th over as the pacesetter in Mohali allowed 16 runs to be scored. Bhuvneshwar gave up 31 runs in his last two overs as Australia finished the job with four balls left.
In the last three 19th overs he has pitched in T20I cricket, against Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the 2022 Asia Cup, as well as the Mohali T20I against Australia, Bhuvneshwar has conceded 49 runs.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s wife Nupur Nagar shares post on Instagram mocking bullies
After making many mistakes in the first T20I, the Indian bowler faced abuse on social media.
On Wednesday, Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s wife wrote a stern message on Instagram that appeared to be laughing at the bullies.
“Nowadays people are so worthless that they have nothing better to do and have so much time to spread hatred and envy… My advice to all those people is: no one is influenced by your words or cares about your existence.
So please spend that time making yourself better, although there is much less room for that!! she wrote in an Insta story.
In the Asian Cup, Bhuvneshwar took a 5-wicket haul against Afghanistan, suggesting he is getting his mojo back after humiliating losses to Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
As many as four wide deliveries were bowled by Bhuvneshwar in his last two overs against Australia due to his inability to manage his variations. With its wide yorkers towards the end, the senior pace was also predictable, creating a sense of predictability.
Nevertheless, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has taken 31 wickets in 23 matches, is India’s best wicket taker in T20Is. In 2022, he gave up runs at a rate of less than 7 per over.
The senior pacer will try to make a strong recovery and regain his rhythm for the T20 World Cup, which starts in Australia on October 16.
