Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar has had a plethora of injuries of late. Though Bhuvneshwar Kumar has proved his usefulness in limited-overs cricket by leading the bowling unit well, there exist doubts over his injury management. The 31-year old, who is currently in Sri Lanka, preparing for the limited-overs series, revealed how he managed his injury when on the sidelines.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has not played consistently for India since the 2019 World Cup. Before the white-ball series against England at home, he played in IPL 2020, which was also cut short due to injury. The first phase of IPL 2021 also saw him sustaining an injury. Hence, it remains to be seen how his future would look like.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar remarked that when he had recovered, domestic cricket was going on. Hence, he seized the opportunity and made a comeback to prepare for international cricket. The 31-year old revealed he participated in domestic cricket to get the required match practice. It kept him motivated to play for the national team and stay fit enough.

“When I was almost recovered, domestic cricket was going on as well. So my focus was to get fit and make a comeback and then I started the preparation for the match. Before the England series, I played domestic cricket, so that it helps me get the required match practice. One shouldn’t take things lightly, while playing domestic cricket and that kept me motivated to play for India and to stay fit,” Kumar said as quoted by Hindustan Times.
