Bhuvneshwar Kumar, a Team India bowler, believes that the T20 format produces a lot of great players. The Men in Blue are getting ready to put together a squad for the T20 World Cup in Australia in 2022.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the vice-captain of a second-string team that is currently touring Ireland. On June 26, India won the first of two T20Is in Dublin by a comfortable seven-wicket margin. Umran Malik, a fast bowling sensation, made his debut for them, and uncapped cricketer Rahul Tripathi is expected to play in the next match.

After the first T20I, Kumar made the following comments about the talent currently on display in the nation:

“We have a lot of great talent, and Umran has already made his debut. Numerous cricketers are produced in this format. The best thing about our squad is that fans show up to cheer us on wherever we travel.”

The game had to be shortened to 12 overs per side due to a period of severe rain. Umran Malik, who was making his debut, was only able to bowl one over as a result. After the powerplay, the speedster’s bowling allowed 14 runs.

Hardik Pandya chose to bowl first after winning the toss and taking the national team’s first-ever captaincy. Despite the small limits, the gloomy circumstances made it a shelter for pacers. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Pandya, and Avesh Khan each took a wicket as India scored three runs in the four-over powerplay.

“Yes, bowling was fun for me. With the new ball, there was some swing. After 4-5 overs, it was much better to bat. No of the format, it is always a good idea to bowl Test-match line and length if you get these kinds of wickets.”

The Men in Blue will face Ireland in the second T20I at the same venue on June 28 (Tuesday).
