Cannot take Bhuvi’s ODI performances for granted: Kohli

Skipper Virat Kohli was all praise for medium-pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who played a pivotal role in India’s clinical win over Australia in their World Cup fixture at the Kennington Oval.

On Sunday, Kumar bowled brilliantly during Australia’s big chase and kept the run flow in check, while picking up crucial wickets as the defending champions fell short by 36 runs from the 353-run target.

The 29-year-old was just immaculate with his line and lengths towards the start of the Australian innings and didn’t give any freebies to the Australian openers. He was equally impressive in his second spell and picked up three wickets, including two in one over of Steve Smith (69) and Marcus Stoinis (0) and made sure Australia never got ahead during their chase.
