What plan does India have in place to cope with David Miller? Bhuvneshwar Kumar Epic Retort
David Miller scored 64 off 31 deliveries in the first T20I against India, helping South Africa chase down 212.
After reaching 211/4 in 20 overs, few anticipated India to lose the first Twenty20 International against South Africa. David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen, on the other hand, were so good that they stole the game from Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, and Avesh Khan’s grasp. At a press conference on Saturday, seasoned veteran Bhuvneshwar Kumar offered an amusing response when asked about India’s bowling intentions for Miller.
With a 64-run knock against India in the first T20I, the left-handed batsman maintained his momentum from the IPL 2022. Miller played a key role in the Gujarat Titans’ win in the prestigious league’s most recent season.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, when asked how India plans to counter Miller’s bowling, said: “It’s not simple (bowling to Miller). He’s in incredible form. South Africa should drop him, but they won’t (laughs).”
The audience erupted in applause as a result of the reaction.
“Because he batted so well in the IPL, we know what he’s capable of. Bowling to him would be difficult “Bhuvneshwar remarked with a reference to Miller.
According to the pacer, India lost the game due to poor bowling.
“The wicket has not yet been discovered. We’ve just gotten here. As you indicated, our bowling was not up to par in the first game, so we’re aiming to bowl better in the second T20I and win to tie the series. The series is still four games away from being decided, and we have a chance to win it. In addition, we must continue to improve our bowling and batting, like we did in the last game.” Bhuvneshwar made the statement during a press conference in Cuttack prior to the second T20I.
“We discussed what went wrong. It was the first game of the series; everyone had just returned from the Indian Premier League, and nearly everyone on the team had a fantastic season. As a result, everyone understands what needs to be done and where we can improve. As a bowling unit, we had a horrible day, and we all want to make apologies in the second T20I “He went on to say the following.
In response to a question regarding his own bowling, the pacer said: “My goal remains the same as it has in the past. On the powerplay and at the end of the game, it’s my responsibility to bowl. That’s where I’m focusing my efforts right now. Because the senior bowlers aren’t present, and there are a few beginner bowlers, I try to carry the load. You’re always trying to make small talk with other bowlers, and I’m always trying to make small talk with them. In each game, the emphasis is on bowling well.”
“Everyone knows how poorly we bowled. Because it was only the first game, we still have a chance to win the series. Depending on the circumstances, you may be unable to fulfill. When you’re defending, you’re usually in a defensive attitude. If you get a wicket, it works quite nicely. When defending a total, though, you are normally on the defense “He went on to state the following.
Finally, Bhuvneshwar asserted that the bowlers’ purpose is to make captain Rishabh Pant seem well.
