Bhuvneshwar Kumar is someone who has had the edge over Chris Gayle

The Indian fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar is someone who has had the edge over Chris Gayle in Twenty 20 Cricket and it’s him who had to be the man for Hyderabad if they had to get rid of the big man early in the IPL final yesterday.


But, Bhuvi’s strategy to bowl a straight line to Gayle was not understandable as all the success he had had against the leftie opener had come by bowling at the off stump channel.

Gayle’s tendency to keep his right foot planted at its initial position and not move it at all, makes him vulnerable to every bowler who can seam it away from him or even create a natural angle as he just throws his hands at such deliveries and while, it generally makes him a leading candidate to edge it behind, he sometimes plays it on the sticks too if the surface is not offering a great deal of speed to the ball after pitching.

Some of the Aussie batsmen had already played Bumrah in the Indian Premier League. So, the 22-year old was no mystery to them, but, still, he has that sort of action that no matter how many times you have played him in the past, he is still going to be tough for you to deal with.

Bumrah’s action is pretty unorthodox. His arms seem to be all over the place when he gets into the position to deliver the ball and as a batsman, it’s tricky to pick the length. Read more »
