One performance after ages. This has been the exact criticism of Pandya as well from neutral fans.

 

Knuckle bowler has sucked for a loooong time, a few hoicks in a losing cause and an odd bowling performance is nothing to rave about.

 

Anyways hope he carries his new found form to :hs:

Bhuvi has to do well every single match or atleast not  have a bad day.(like every cricketer)...or else he has had it.

 

He may not be as big a wkt taker as bumrah or shami,but he is more consistent and predictable with a decent above average performance.

 

Loved his batting.:hatsoff:

Wish he could have got us closer.

Good point. We can open with him to take advantage of field restriction , only problem is our batting lineup is so one dimensional that other than new guys, no one is able to play at any other position than where they bat. Be it dhawan, rohit or kohli.

Team filled with one dimensional cricketer. Even our keeper is one dimensional, can only stump

Virat definitely can play anywhere in Top 5 and do well , though considering how successful he is at No 3 its a big call to move him .

He was the top bowler in the Aus series this year and completely outbowled shami. In fact he is the best averaging indian pacer in 2019 and second best averaging  bowler after chahal. He has the most wickets and highest strike rate and he has played less match than shami

Bhuvi's pace is up again and that shows up in his bowling. He's picking wickets regularly now and getting good movement. With the bat, he is reliable and when we lose early wickets, may not be a bad idea to promote him and hold Pandya back during the WC.

He is actually having the best season of his career right now this year, but last year was his worst.

He's been excellent since the Aus ODIs. 10 ODIs, 19 wickets@22. Has been our best bowler during this period and the best ever he's bowled. He's fit again and bowling at a decent pace not the high 120s-low 130s. I am now hoping we get some bowling friendly pitches in WC where we will be favorites against any team.

He starts of well but his bowling at the death is atrocious. He tends to get worse as the series progresses but obviously there are exceptions to the rules.

Lol suddenly after one or two bad games, one coming after a long break, his death bowling is atrocious. His death bowling was great in both aus and nz series 

 

 Bumrah must be atrocious too considering his death bowling in this series

He doesn’t deserve a place above Shami. He is probably the best backup right now because all others suck, so he has his spot.

You kidding right? Unlike Narine, Bhuvi is more of a defensive batsman who takes time before he can hit. However he has definitely improved his hitting capabilities over a period of time. Hope he can contribute regular 20-30s at his number.

I wudnt call him defensive , rather he’s more correct . If sent with instructions just hit out I see no reason he can do as well as narine or even better . 

 

Bhuvi always was good with the bat , I created a thread iirc much before his India debute after watching him score runs for UP . Thought he was a AR in the making , unfortunately when you bat at 8 or 9 you don’t get enough opportunities

top order batting se advertising paisa banta hai.  Don't expect Viral Kilo and his buds to release their deathgrip from those coveted slots anytime soon.

 

Edit: Not saying Bhuvi should bat in the top order - no higher than 8 in LOIs.

I think Bhuvi is a good batsman. He can be useful down the order but steep chases are not for him he can support another proper batsman in those. 

 

As a bowler he needs to consistantly take wickets. Maybe he shami and bumrah can play along with kuldeep. With shankar as middle order bat and Pandya jadhav as alrounder.

 

Thats the best India can do thats it.  Manage to beat as many teams as possible.

Hmm I agree about him being solid as a batsman but don't think attacking batting or hitting out comes naturally to him.

However, why are we even discussing this, it is something which ain't happening lol

He is good as a supporting act. Won’t do much when he has to go all out. A couple of 6s here and there when he has nothing to lose is different when the context becomes he has to play a more calculated hitting against new ball against quality bowlers.

 

Narine experiment works in IPL,PSL,BPl, big bash in short Tamasha leagues where he can smack a few mediocre bowlers.

 

open with him in LOI cricket, story will be different

Is that why he was the top wicket taker in the Aus series? And he has a better average and strike rate than both Bumrah and Shami this year? The same Shami whose 2019 performance you people keep circle jerking about yet Bhuvi has bowled way better?

 

Hiding indeed

Don't you know that he is worse than Virat Kohli as a bowler ? Just ask the geniuses here who can provide the Cricinfo filters to prove that fact.

 

Fact is, he does need to improve on death bowling first and wicket taking in general. He just bowls a bunch of slower/knuckle balls which are high risk in death overs.

 

It seemed to me based on a NZ game that he was capable of executing multiple yorkers in T20 in the 2 death overs. Odis however demand more strength & stamina where he may be shying away from putting in the extra yard.

 

I would however always include him on green tops, his consistency is an asset in SA, Eng. Would be #2 bowler in such conditions given his past performances. Has the odd performance with the bat as well.

So you believe he will deliver on flat featherbeds of England this wc,to further boost his 35+ bowling average??

Think before  typing crap

You continue to be absorbed in your fantasies about knuckle man,that is a norm,but don't let it make you fool around here

Is 2019 over??or did you deliberately overlook  his 2017,18 stats

And Bumrah got his ass handed to him in the death in the matches we lost. That is what defines Bumrah indeed and he should be dropped. I mean he chokes when the series/final is on the line like CT final or this match while Bhuvi steps up big time

But Shami circlejerk started because of his current form no?

 

Should I bring up Bhuvi's test stats and will you agree that he should be the first bowler in tests even ahead of Shami or Ishant? If not why consider stats here?

It seems you have been more used to those circle jerks to celebrate Knuckle man's every intl appearance,Hey , neither iam advocating shamis place nor will I want TM replace him with a so called (redundant)strike bowler

He(Bhuvi) is definitely our go to man in tests when conditions are swing aiding(yes i feel he is a better exponent of swing bowling with red ball than the white ball in hand)but seriously is not a threat on tracks that dont offer much to his kind of bowling

So, are you trying to say in England Bhuvi won't be effective in ODIs?

 

Let's see the last World event (Champions Trophy) that happened in ENGLAND to see how he fared and also have a look at how Bumrah fared:

 

Player Mat Inns Overs Mdns Runs Wkts BBI Ave Econ SR 4 5 Ct St
B Kumar 5 5 42.3 4 197 7 2/23 28.14 4.63 36.4 0 0 2 0
JJ Bumrah 5 5 42.0 1 210 4 2/28 52.50 5.00 63.0 0 0 1 0
KM Jadhav 5 3 12.0 0 67 3 2/22 22.33 5.58 24.0 0 0 3 0
UT Yadav 2 2 17.2 1 97 3 3/30 32.33 5.59 34.6 0 0 0 0

 

 

He averaged 28 with SR of 36.4 vs Bumrah who averaged 52 with SR of 63. And before you think India did not play on flat decks to rubbish Bhuvi's performance - Out of the 5 India matches, 3 matches had atleast one team scoring 319+.

 

Not just this, have a look at the World event in England before that as well where he averaged 23 at SR of 35 and Economy of 3.9. So if you go by stats he has done extremely well in the last two ICC tourneys in ENGLAND.

 

I am not saying Bumrah will be be bad this time as he has certainly learnt how to bowl in England now after the tour. But the stats as well as all the matches Bhuvi has played in ENGLAND so far has proved he is a much better bowler in all formats in ENGLAND.

There was a time when Bhuvi was our most bankable bowler in odis,he used to take wickets upfront with his swing,nver ever can let slip away  memories of his lovely bowling in a test match against Kiwis in Eden gardens,he was a complete bowler back in those days

Talking about  oneday cricket,he used to bowl those yorkers with great precision in death overs ,always used to outdo batsmen,, but suddenly developed a special liking towards knuckle balls and other innovative stuffs which made him forget his main art of bowling with control,since then he started bowling too many cutters,knuckle balls in death overs,at that pace lining him up is quite easy 

Would be glad if he starts bowling with his original style which fetched him and his team rewards, certainly did intend to start a Bhuvi vs Bumrah debate,his last two years bowling avg suggest otherwise though

Hope he does well for us in Eng,if bowling has to be our metier then Bhuvi has a huge role to play in few months time

Bhuvi is an average ODI bowler and good Test and T20 bowler, even at the start of his career. But in England especially in ICC tourneys he has been good because the English overhead conditions suit his bowling the best. If this WC was happening anywhere else other than England (even India) I would probably not have Bhuvi in starting XI but in England he has to start in the XI. IMO all three of Bumrah, Bhuvi and Shami should be in playing XI in most matches.

Thanks for my first trollvote,I have never been a hater because of his lack of pace but of late the guy has lost his effectiveness,it has become easier for opposition batsmen to target him and I cannot remember a match winning performance in a long time while I can recall a bunch of times when Bumrah won the game for us.

Just in previous series in Australia, Bhuvi had a match winning performance of 4/45 in 10 overs. India won that series without Bumrah and Bhuvi has been averaging 22 this year with ball.

 

Agreed Bumrah is a better ODI bowler than Bhuvi but Bhuvi has a more recent match winning performance in contrast to your claim. Also Bumrah went missing big time in last Champions trophy in England averaging 53, his performances so far have been all in bilaterals whereas Bhuvi has actually performed in ICC tournaments. You can see my posts above.

Still does not negate the fact that it has become easier for the batsmen to line him up,Shami should get in the team ahead of Bhuvi in the squad.If we are playing 3 seamers then yes Bhuvi should be the third seamer

3 seamers should be played in England, there should be no two ways about it.
