Bhuvneshwar Kumar Looking Forward To Make A Comeback During England Series

Veteran Team India fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has set his eyes on the upcoming series against England to make a comeback after a long injury lay-off. He has finally returned to cricket playing for Uttar Pradesh in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and will be eying an international comeback now.

Incidentally, Bhuvneshwar Kumar suffered an injury during IPL 2020 playing for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. He missed the entire Australian tour and was at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru undergoing rehabilitation.

India will play 4 Tests, 5 T20Is, and 3 ODIs against England and the selectors announced the squad for the first two Tests which didn’t feature Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

“I am raring to go against England. I am fit after recovering from injury. I did my rehab well at the National Cricket Academy and am playing in Mushtaq Ali Trophy to prove my match fitness.

Before IPL, my mission is to do well against England and I am looking forward to the opportunity. There are plenty of opportunities this year, but I am taking it one by one,” said Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Meanwhile, India are currently gripped with a handful of injuries with Umesh Yadav down with a calf injury while Mohammed Shami suffered a fractured arm during the first Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Adelaide.
