Former Indian player Ajay Jadeja is highly impressed with the way experienced speedster Bhuvneshwar Kumar showcased his skills against Afghanistan at the Asia Cup 2022 on Thursday as well. While Virat Kohli scored his 71st century, it was Bhuvneshwar Kumar who stole the show with the spell of 5/4.

While speaking to Cricbuzz after Team India’s thumping win, Ajay Jadeja said: “When there’s movement on offer, he (Bhuvi) has the skill. He understands that he needs to bowl in the right place and let things happen. Young bowlers might get excited and overdo things when they see such conditions. But not with Bhuvi, he absolutely imposes himself when he gets the conditions.”

Meanwhile, Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag was also present on the panel and opened up about the way Bhuvneshwar cleaned up the opposition star Rahmanullah Gurbaz. Sehwag also said how dangerous Bhuvneshwar can be when he gets the swing.

“Bhuvneshwar Kumar swung the ball both ways and Gurbaz’s wicket was simply brilliant. When you get such deliveries as a batter, then you don’t feel bad because you understand that the bowler has bowled an incredible ball. So Bhuvi is lethal whenever he gets the swing on offer,” he said.

Ajay Jadeja further said: “When you fall from a position with such an emotional high last night, it is difficult to make a comeback. On top of that, you field for 20 overs and the opposition scores 212. Your main hitters got out quickly and then Bhuvneshwar didn’t let anyone stand. So it was obviously very difficult for Afghanistan.”
