Boucher all praise for Bhuvneshwar

After the five-match T20I series between India and South Africa ended, Proteas head coach Mark Boucher lavished praise on pacer Bhuveshwar Kumar for putting the batters under pressure.

The fifth and final T20I between India and South Africa at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru was abandoned due to rain on Sunday. With this, the series stays level at 2-2 and will be shared by both sides. “Temba struggled during the tour. There’s no doubt. But he only really struggled against one bowler and that was [Bhuvneshwar] Kumar. Most of the guys struggled against him. Let’s give him credit where it’s due. Kumar is a fantastic bowler in those conditions,” said Boucher as reported by ESPNcricinfo.

“There were times when the ball was swinging a lot which makes him very, very dangerous. Also, the ball was up and down a lot, especially with the new ball,” he added.
