wow cricinfo is trolling him lol Bhuvi has to be clearly communicating that he can't bowl 19th over anymore or Rohit shouldn't give him 19th over. Problem is he can do that if he bowls well upfront Y day he struggled with new ball as well.

so basically neither up front in pp nor at the back end at death..

Need to understand the logic of playing Umesh who came in as a replacement for Shami who is just a stand by in the WC squad. 
 

let’s say Umesh performed well, how would it have helped our WC prep?

Can't understand the rationale behind that decision, on one hand we want to experiment and fine-tune our combinations but on the other we parachute in a 34 yr old pacer who has never beenn suited to T20 cricket having played only county cricket the past few months and will likely not make any meaningful contributions to our whiteball team going fwd in the near future. I can't blame Umesh for this but the tm, especially if their only reason for doing this is that Shami is injured. 

The attack we have assembled could/can only win on sticky surfaces where the ball doesn't come onto the bat like it often does at the end of the ipl season. Tbf with both Bumrah and Arshdeep in it will make the attack look a lot better and different but it is still a missed opportunity.

Bhuvi has been playing T20 for a long time. By now people know what he bowls. Everybody can set themselves up against him. His only variation at this point is slower balls, knuckle balls. Components that are missing 1)  Effort ball  2) Sharp bouncer into the body 3) Yorker (wide or straight yorker) .   Even the only variation he knows, he doesn't execute properly.  He bowled 3 wides. Three extra balls right there.

For the experienced 'spearhead'of the attack to **** himself at the death without fail every time is not a good look. He was not even bowling to his field yday with those wide Yorkers that became extras in the Asia Cup because he couldn't back himself to execute the delivery he needed to properly. How this has escaped the tms notice is beyond me, i was glad that Hitman looked visibly irritated yday.

Bhuvi looks petrified to attack the bat.Any bowler worth his salt will say, here is my best delivery and if you can hit it. I tip my hat and move on.

 

Instead all he is trying to do is avoid the bat and is ending bowling wides on both sides.Anyone can see it coming from miles.All he has in his arsenal is wide yorker.Bhuvi's so called death bowling skills never work in international cricket.You still need pace and bounce to be good death bowler.

 

Same thing with that guy Harshal all he has is slower delivery,  Everyone except mornic selectors and TM know these two guys cannot be successful in Australia.

Not sure why he isn't bowling yorkers more frequently - when he was effective in T20s, he was bowling a lot of accurate yorkers, and at good pace.  He isn't going to be effective without those....

But he didn't play at all or played minimally in the recent IPL. Was he injured? 

 

Played only 2 games. Mostl because Umran was also in the same side. So he was used as a 2nd change bowler not opening.  He has this positive , brisk approach to the crease. Looks up for a challenge. With enough game time he will be a good addition for us.  He is reasonably tall. internet says 6'3".  Pretty sharp, nippy. India needs to form a pace quartet that complement each other. It is easier to achieve when you have Bumrah still playing at his best.

Tyagi was fit after the first few matches.

 

But for most matches, barring 2, SRH could manage only 1 slot for a rookie quick bowler and Umran was played. 

 

Important trundlers occupied the other slots with glee.

on flat tracks all these bowlers like Bhuvi and harshal are basically cannon fodder.Australians can hit them with their eyes closed,they are born to play on flat tracks

On evidence he is scared. As simple as that.  When he saw Pakistan sloggers moving across to the off side he didn't have the courage to target the stumps. Seems like he doesn't have trust in himself to bowl an yorker. So he just resorts to his easier option of knuckle balls. He doesn't have to be Malinga. He just has to be reasonably accurate.
