Special praise for Bhuvneshwar Kumar from Shikhar Dhawan
Oct.26 (CRICKETNMORE) - Shikhar Dhawan had special praise for Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who in his view, is the best death overs specialist in the world. Dhawan scored a crucial fifty as India easily chased down New Zealand's paltry total in the second ODI in Pune to level the three-match ODI series.
"He (Bhuvneshwar) has raised his bar and I feel he is at a very high level. His control over the bowling is very good. Not just at the start but other variations. Even when he bowls slower ball and knuckle ball he makes sure he lands it in the right areas," he said.
"The way he got that left-hander out (Colin Munro), it was because he pitched that ball in the right area and even when it comes in the death over, he is the best bowler. Best bowler in the world I guess, the way he bowls Yorkers.
Bhuvneshwar was the pick of the Indian bowlers, taking three for 45 as India restricted New Zealand to 230 for nine.
"I have seen him in the IPL and in the Indian team, he has bowled consistently well. He has improved a lot. And I feel that he has got a lot of belief in himself and that's what is showing out there," added Dhawan.
