Temba Bavuma Struggled There’s No Doubt, But He Only Really Struggled Against Bhuvneshwar Kumar – Mark Boucher

The South Africa head trainer Mark Boucher admitted that the white-ball captain of the staff, Temba Bavuma, struggled for runs within the just lately concluded five-match T20I collection in opposition to India. However, Boucher feels that Bavuma’s actual battle was once simplest in opposition to pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

The five-match T20I collection between India and South Africa led to a 2-2 draw after the overall recreation was once washed out because of rain.

Meanwhile, the South Africa head trainer mentioned that just about each and every batter struggled in opposition to Bhuvneshwar within the T20I collection. He added that the veteran Indian pacer turns into bad when he will get the swing.

“Temba struggled during the tour. There’s no doubt,” South Africa trainer Mark Boucher was once quoted as announcing by way of ESPNcricinfo.

“But he only really struggled against one bowler and that was [Bhuvneshwar] Kumar. Most of the guys struggled against him. Let’s give him credit where it’s due. Kumar is a fantastic bowler in those conditions,” he additional added.

“There were times when the ball was swinging a lot which makes him very, very dangerous. Also, the ball was up and down a lot, especially with the new ball,” Boucher mentioned.

South Africa glance unbothered by way of the struggles of Bavuma and they are going to keep on with him in spite of his deficient run with the bat in recent years as the pinnacle trainer Boucher mentioned that the Proteas captain had a excellent strike price in opposition to the bowlers rather then Bhuvneshwar.

“We take a look at it as coaches and say how can we take a look at that exact bowler and the way can we give him [Bavuma] extra choices? It’s fairly tough for him to modify up right through a chain the place you mainly travel-play, travel-play. 

“To come into a series, T20, as an opening batter, you’ve got to go from the get-go, that was always going to be quite tough for him, especially against Kumar. With other bowlers his strike rates are fine. There’s no issue there.”

Notably, Bhuvneshwar Kumar had a stellar run within the just lately concluded five-match T20I collection in opposition to South Africa National Cricket Team as he bagged 6 wickets at an economic system price of 6.07 to win the Player of the Series Award.
