Bhuvneshwar Kumar is happy that Sunrisers Hyderabad batters are helping the bowlers with plenty of runs to defend in the ongoing IPL 2024. On Saturday, SRH batter posted 267/7 against Delhi Capitals and easily won as well. While SRH batters might be taking all the limelight, Bhuvneshwar Kumar said that it’s the bowlers who ultimately win a team the tournaments.

“Bowling is something which wins you matches. I don’t know who said this but ‘batting wins you the sponsorships and bowling wins you the championships’. That’s very well said. When you defend, almost 250 (tonight) but it came down to the last few overs. The way we are bowling is pretty good. Looks bad on the scoreboard but the way we have executed our plans it’s pretty good,” Bhuvneshwar said after the match.

However, Travis Head (89 off 32), Shahbaz Ahmed (59* off 29) and Abhishek Sharma (46 off 12) helped SRH put up a massive total. SRH bowlers did well but Bhuvneshwar Kumar was superb in the Powerplay as he bowled two overs for one wicket and 15 runs during the phase as well. Nitish Reddy (2/17) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1/33) were impressive too as SRH bowled out Delhi Capitals for 199 to win by 67 runs.

“When you’re defending those many runs, either you go for plenty of runs or you get them out within 150. We accepted the fact defending those many runs, we will go for plenty of runs. We wanted to keep executing our plans, keep thinking the right way,” Bhuvneshwar Kumar concluded.
