Bhuvneshwar Kumar ENG vs IND: In a massive news update, India’s in-form pace bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar is not playing the third and final T20I game against England scheduled to be contested at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham. The Men in Blue registered a convincing 49-run win against England in the second T20I match to take an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the three-match T20I series. The visitors also won the opening game of the series by a comprehensive margin of 50 runs.

ENG vs IND: Why is Bhuvneshwar Kumar Not Playing Today?

After losing the toss and being asked to bowl first, India captain Rohit Sharma revealed the big news that their premier pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar is not playing this third and final T20I against England. Bhuvneshwar has seriously troubled the English top order with his swing bowling at the top. The senior pace bowler was the Man of the Match during the second T20I encounter where he registered brilliant figures of 3 for 15 in his three overs. He has bowled remarkably well for the Indian side in the last few white-ball games.

“We would have fielded first. Had batted first twice, wanted to chase at least once. Four changes for us – Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Umran Malik and Shreyas Iyer are in. They replace Bhuvi, Bumrah, Chahal and Hardik. We don’t want to miss out on the winning confidence, but there are a few things we want to have a look at before the World Cup, so the changes. We’re excited for Umran, want to wish him the best and give him confidence,” said India captain Rohit Sharma during the toss.
