Bhuvneshwar Kumar Profile

Bhuvneshwar Kumar did very well on both ODI and T20I debuts against Pakistan in late 2012. The Uttar Pradesh medium pacer displayed big swing, either way, as the Pakistani batsmen found themselves helpless dealing with his bowling.


Soon he was given a Test call-up but this turned out to be a baptism of fire as he went wicketless against Australia in his debut game in February 2013. He got a few more opportunities but failed to impress until the Nottingham Test against England in July 2014 where he picked up his first five-for. Another five-for followed in the next Test which India won at Lord’s. He ended up taking 19 wickets in five matches besides scoring 247 runs with the help of three fifties. Things appeared rosy for Bhuvi at that time.


However, soon it became evident if he didn’t increase his pace by a couple of yards, he couldn’t hope to get on with his international cricket much. Not one to give up in the face of challenges, Bhuvneshwar worked hard towards improving his pace and in 2016 led India’s victories in Gros Islet against the West Indies and in Kolkata against New Zealand with five-fors.


Purple Cap winner for taking most wickets in the 2016 IPL for champions Sunrisers Hyderabad, Bhuvneshwar is back where he belongs and looks set for a long innings.
