A number of cricketers have been doing live sessions in recent days on Instagram as no cricketing action is going on around at the moment due to the coronavirus pandemic. On one such live session between David Warner and Bhuvneshwar Kumar on the Sunrisers Hyderabad instagram page, Bhuvi trolled his captain.
During the interaction named Warner’s corner, David Warner gave Bhuvneshwar Kumar a hypothetical situation. He asked Bhuvi what would he bowl at the him if India and Australia were playing in the final of the T20 World Cup at the MCG and the hosts needed 4 to win off the last ball.
Before Bhuvneshwar Kumar could even answer the question, David Warner shared his views. The swashbuckling Australian said that Bhuvneshwar Kumar would bowl a knuckleball. He has been using the knuckle ball for his great advantage over the years.
“If Bhuvi was bowling to me in the last over of the World T20 final at the MCG…what would you bowl if I needed four runs of the last ball,”
David Warner asked Bhuvneshwar Kumar before adding:
“I’m thinking, knuckleball, into the wicket because it is the MCG and big boundaries.”
Bhuvneshwar Kumar then came up with a savage response, saying:
“First thing, I don’t think I have to bowl to you in the last over because I will get you out in the first few overs.”
The India pace star then went on to say that the knuckleball would not be the only option and he might try a bouncer or a different delivery depending on the situation and taking into account what his captain also suggests.
David Warner has been going live daily in Sunrisers Instagram page interviewing each of his teammates one by one in a show named Warner’s corner. Johnny Bairstow, Kane Williamson and Vijay Shankar were also invited as the guests on various other days.
If not for the pandemic, both the stars would have been playing in the IPL. The thirteenth edition of the league was scheduled to start on March 29 but the BCCI had to suspend the league indefinitely in the light of the pandemic.
