19th November 2019 Abu Dhabi (UAE) - Super league - Bangla Tigers vs Team Abu Dhabi. The third edition of the T10 League is set to get underway from November 14 to 24, with eight teams competing for the title at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
South Africa’s former fast bowler Charl Langeveldt has all high praise for Indian pace bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar. According to 45-year old, Bhuvneshwar has the ability to swing the ball even in the conditions against the bowler. As per his interview to betway, Charl has seen Kumar swinging the ball both ways where bowlers have struggled to get some sort of swing.
“Kumar has been brilliant. He swings it both ways in Indian conditions and then when he came to South Africa he was successful. The subcontinent is totally different. They play with an SG ball, which swings for a short while but gets scuffed so quickly,” Langeveldt quoted as saying by betway.
Charl Langeveldt was involved in an interview with Adam Drury asking his thoughts regarding the saliva banned by ICC to shine the ball amid COVID-19 as security precautions in spreading the virus. It is going to be tough for the bowlers to get swing with older one due not to use saliva for shining one side. Hence Langeveldt said that bowling at the right length would be key for bowlers to get wickets.
“You have to be more attacking, hitting the stumps and making the batsmen play, and the length is probably a bit shorter because the ball doesn’t swing as much,” he added.
Once Proteas bowling coach Langeveldt also admitted that Dale Steyn was such a key and wicket-taker bowler in the African team. The fact is Steyn’s action and the way he used to bowl from near to the stumps, forced batsman to play more balls though he didn’t swing much. Still, he was impactful as he adjusted the situation and condition pretty much.
“Steyn was always close to the stumps. so you had to play at most of his deliveries. It wasn’t always a big swing, but he forced the batsmen to play a lot more than someone like Jimmy. He adjusted to conditions, so if the ball was swinging too much he would come a bit wider and change the angle that he was bowling from. He was brilliant in that way.”
Charl Langeveldt played 72 ODIs for the national team in which he took 100 wickets meanwhile appeared in 6 tests as well where he got 16 wickets against his name.
