The Uttar Pradesh born Bhuvneshwar Kumar who debuted for India in 2012 has been one of the important members of the Indian white ball set up for quite sometime now. The right arm bowler is known for his swing who could make the ball to move both the ways which is one of the rare qualities for a fast bowler.
The former SRH captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar took to Instagram to answer some of the questions which was asked by his fans. In the process, Bhuvneshwar Kumar came across a mean question for which he replied in a light hearted manner.
India produced some excellent bunch of fast bowlers during the Ganguly and Dravid era with the likes of Irfan Pathan, Lakshmipathy Balaji, RP Singh, S Sreesanth, Joginder Sharma but none became a prominent one and justified their potential. India is a country that have always searched for quality fast bowlers time and again. The legendary Kapil Dev was the first quick bowler for India who was respected by the opposition for his pace. Then came Javgal Srinath followed by Zaheer Khan.
When Bhuvneshwar Kumar burst into the scene, he looked like another promising talent but he lacked serious pace and many wrote him off due to that reason. As years went by, Bhuvneshwar Kumar understood the need of the hour and started to work on his fitness which could help him to bowl with pace which the bowler has achieved successfully.
At the moment, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is one of the best death bowlers in the world and his ability to nail the yorkers with accuracy has made him one of the perfect partners for Jasprit Bumrah for India in white ball cricket.
It is a known fact that the man of the tournament in 2011 world cup Yuvraj Singh battled with cancer and even came back to cricket to score his highest ever ODI score. When a fan asked a word about Yuvraj Singh, the canny customer Bhuvneshwar Kumar said that Yuvraj Singh is a fighter and an inspiration.
