Born on 5 February 1990 in Meerut, Bhuvi is quite handy with the bat too. Kumar is a complete bowler who swings the ball both ways, bowls economically, and takes wickets upfront with the new ball. He also has good yorkers and variations in his armoury which he utilizes well at the fag end of the innings in white-ball cricket.

The pacer burst onto the international scene in December 2012 when he made his ODI and T20I debuts against Pakistan. He earned this first Test cap versus Australia in February 2013. Initially, he bowled with excellent control around the 130-mark but as years progressed, he added more speed to his game. The ‘Swing King’ is a delight to watch and continues to trouble batsmen across the world. Kumar’s favorite cricketers are AB de Villers and Wasim Akram. He also idolizes Praveen Kumar.
