Sunrisers Hyderabad pace bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar comeback with a number of 5 for 19 which helped his side a five-run win against Kings XI Punjab with a brilliant attempt of Manan Vohra batted scoring 95 off 50 balls.
The 27-year-old Sunrisers pacer Kumar said that he was not upset about the attack strike by Manan Vohra as he is “used to it.”
After awarded as Man of the Match Bhuvneshwar said at the post-match ceremony, “My heart is still pounding. T20 is a game where you must expect the unexpected. I’ve been doing this job for Sunrisers and I knew I had to bowl the 19th over. I’m used to it and I believed in myself.”
“When I bowled the 16th or 17th over, I knew he was in good nick. I wasn’t worried but wanted to make a plan instead. Warner and I planned to bowl straight Yorkers and it worked.”
Skipper David Warner praises to a bowler like Bhuvneshwar in his side, “Credit to Manan for playing like that. Credit to Bhuvi too, he was unbelievable. Manan made it look easy when he cleared the ropes.
“He had to dig in for his team. Unfortunately, only one team can win. It’s great to have Bhuvi in the shed at the back end and he executed perfectly.”
Maxwell said that it was a criminal to lose the match after Vohra’s knock. “It was an outstanding game, made by great innings by Vohra. Unfortunately, he didn’t have help from the rest of us. It was definitely chase-able.”
We did well in the middle with the ball but let it slip in the back end. To play an innings like that in a losing cause is criminal. He’s a superstar. A big score like that was around the corner for him,” added Maxwell.

Maxwell said about Bhuvneshwar development, “We knew Bhuvi was going to swing it around a bit. We didn’t expect the wicket to be so up and down and he bowled good lengths. We had planned for him and Rashid, but giving seven wickets to them probably did us in. We wanted to take off and get 60 in the powerplay, but it didn’t one off.”
