Mukesh Kumar: The five-match Test series between India and England continues. Recently, the second test match was played between the two teams, in which Team India won by 106 runs. After winning this match, the Men in Blue series is tied at 1-1. Even though the Indian team has won the match played in Visakhapatnam, the poor performance of one player is being discussed everywhere.
That player is none other than Mukesh Kumar, resident of Gopalganj, Bihar. The fast bowler’s performance in the second test was very poor. After this performance he may be dropped from the team. If he is out then who can take his place?
This player can replace Mukesh Kumar
In the second match between India and England, Mukesh Kumar got a chance in place of Mohammad Siraj. But he failed to capitalize on this opportunity. He proved to be a complete flop for India in bowling. Talking about his bowling in the first innings, he gave 44 runs while bowling 7 overs and did not take a single wicket.
He is in the same condition in the second innings also. But he got one wicket in the second innings. After this poor performance, this bowler hailing from Bihar may be dropped from Team India. Bhuvneshwar Kumar may return to Team India in his place.
Bhuvi Kumar can trouble English batsmen
Therefore, Bhuvneshwar Kumar can be tried in place of Mukesh Kumar. Because he is an experienced player. Besides, his swing bowling is also quite impressive. With the new ball he swings the ball, due to which the batsmen often have to face problems. The ball has swung a lot in both the matches played between India and England so far.
In such a situation, if a bowler from Meerut is selected in the remaining three matches against England. So he can trouble the English batsmen. Apart from this, a famous Ranji player by the name of Swing Kumar is currently playing. During this period he played two matches and took 13 wickets. While taking 13 wickets, he also included the feat of taking 8 wickets in a match.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar played his last match in 2018
It is noteworthy that if Bhuvneshwar Kumar returns to Team India from England. In such a situation, after about 6 years he will be seen representing India in Tests. The last Test match for India was played against South Africa in the year 2018. Since then he has not been seen in this format. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has taken a total of 63 wickets in 21 test matches. Batting in the lower order, he has scored 552 runs in 29 innings.
