ICC T20 World Cup 2022: India vs South Africa

ICC T20 World Cup 2022: India vs South Africa – India’s senior speedster Bhuvneshwar Kumar didn’t mince words when he said flatly that ‘things could have been different’ had Aiden Markram’s hold been taken or a few tight breakaways had been made in the loss of the team to five wickets against South Africa on Sunday.

IND vs SA highlights: Rohit BLAMES poor line-up for FIRST T20 World Cup 2022 LOSS, admits ‘We weren’t good enough on the pitch’

ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Bhuvneshwar Kumar NOT HAPPY with Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, says ‘If we had taken a chance, the result could have been different against South Africa’

Virat Kohli dropped a Markram cart in the middle of Ravichandran Ashwin’s deep wicket when the batter was on 35.
“Yes, if you had taken those takes, it would have been different. Catches win games and those chances, if taken, could have been the difference,” Bhuvneshwar said during the post-match conference.

Markram scored 52 from 41 and added a crucial 76 for the fourth wicket with David Miller (59 not knocked out) as South Africa chased a 134 goal with two balls to spare. While he wouldn’t commit to the fact that the dropped capture happened when the momentum changed, but between the lines it could be read that the pitch of the day let the team down.

“Not really, the holds we dropped and the missed chances we missed, I wouldn’t say the momentum changed, but it would have been different. But I won’t identify any particular moment as such. said the tailor.

Difficult track to follow

Bhuvneshwar was sympathetic with the Indian higher order who struggled to cope with extra pace, rebound and movement. “As for the stick, we all know that was a tough wicket to beat. If you look at the tournament so far, the par score has been around 140 and so on. We thought with 140 we had the belief that we could make a game of it.

He defended skipper Rohit Sharma’s decision to give Ashwin 18th (his fourth) after scoring 17 in 14th. The only other option Rohit had was Deepak Hooda.

“Generally the idea is that if the spinners could keep things tight, it would have been tough for the hitters at the end against the point guards. And if you keep a spinner at the end, it becomes easier on the stick. If we had had a wicket, things could have changed,” he cried.

Unlike India, where hunting is the order of the day in the T20Is due to the dew factor, conditions in Australia change from city to city. “That’s the beauty of Australia. In India you try to hunt because you have dew. In Australia things change from town to town and here it was hard to hunt, but it might be different in the next town we go,” he added.

He didn’t want to give the extreme cold conditions an excuse for not doing well. “It was very difficult but we never talked about it because we knew we had to deal with those conditions. Even in Melbourne it was cold but we never talked about those things.
