Regarded as one of the finest swing bowlers of his generation, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has become a folklore for the Indian bowling fraternity. Coming from a town such as Meerut, which specialises in making bats, Bhuvi has emerged as arguably the best fast bowling prospect for the country. Early on in the career his pace was questioned, now with training, he has made that part of the game another asset. A cerebral talent to hold onto and help mould the future generation of fast bowlers.
