Veteran fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar took 3 wickets in the second ODI played on Tuesday. Whereas he could not take a single wicket in the first match and proved to be very expensive too. Apart from bowling brilliantly in the second match, Bhuvi also bowled a no ball. Although ‘no ball’ has become common in cricket today, but when it came out of Bhuvneshwar’s hand, everyone was stunned, because after 6 years he bowled a no ball.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowls ‘no ball’ after 6 years
Today, with the pace of cricket, getting no balls out of the hands of bowlers has become a common practice. But Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the bowler whose getting no balls out of his hands is a big deal. In the second ODI match played with Sri Lanka, the first ball of the 5th over from Bhuvi’s hand in front of Minod Bhanuka was a no ball.
This right-arm fast bowler had bowled a no ball after almost 6 years, 3093 balls. Bhuvneshwar Kumar last bowled a no ball in international cricket against South Africa in October 2015. Bhuvi took 3 wickets in this match and impressed everyone with his bowling.
India registered a thrilling win
Electing to bat after winning the toss, the Sri Lankan team set a target of 276 runs in front of India. In reply, the Indian team could not get a good start. First India’s top order was reduced to 65-3. After this, Suryakumar Yadav raised the hope of victory in the Indian camp by scoring a half-century, but he could not win and was out. After this, when Deepak Chahar came on the field, then India’s score was 160-6.
But what happened then will be remembered in the cricket corridors for years. Deepak Chahar, batting brilliantly, played a strong innings of 69* runs and helped India win by 3 wickets. With this win, India now have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. The third match of the series will be played on 23 July.
