When questioned about Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s performance in the 2022 Asia Cup, veteran Indian captain Rohit Sharma had an intriguing response. The Asia Cup 2022’s Super 4 stage ended with a heartbreaking loss for the defending champions Team India at the hands of Sri Lanka on Tuesday. The record-holders are in danger of leaving the continental event early after consecutive losses to Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

In game three of the Asia Cup Super 4 phase at the Dubai International Stadium, Sri Lanka, captained by Dasun Shanaka, accomplished an incredible run chase to defeat India by six wickets. Indian captain Rohit dismissed worries about the Men in Blue’s form ahead of the upcoming ICC World T20 while speaking to the media after Sri Lanka’s dramatic victory against the record-time Asia Cup champions.

“In the first six overs, we did not bat or score runs in the manner that we desired. But after that, we gained momentum. However, we were unable to take advantage of it and win the match. Although I believe we were 10 to 12 runs short, 175 runs are still manageable. Spinners’ bowling style provided us with optimism and allowed us to reenter the game. However, we were unable to finish the game as we had hoped “In a post-game news conference, Rohit remarked.

The Indian captain decided to silence the detractors of veteran bowler Bhuvneshwar, who failed to pick up a wicket in India’s crucial encounter against Sri Lanka, at the post-match press conference. “Even seasoned bowlers attempt runs. Bhuvi has played for us for so long and has helped us win so many games in the last overs “India’s all-format skipper was questioned over Bhuvneshwar’s underwhelming performances in the final few overs, to which Rohit answered.

Bhuvneshwar, a pacer, gave up 30 runs in 4 overs while Arshdeep Singh, a speed merchant, let up 40 runs in 3.5 overs while playing the Islanders. Before Pakistan defeated Team India in their Super 4 opening at the Asia Cup, Bhuvneshwar let out 19 runs in the 19th over.
