Bhuvneshwar Kumar would be one of the several Indian cricketers for whom the IPL will serve as a comeback to competitive cricket. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will don the Orange jersey, playing for David Warner-led Sunrisers Hyderabad. The senior Indian pacer believes that bowlers must perform their role to good effect instead of merely adding to their variations.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar endured a torrid recent time with the national team, suffering a plethora of injuries. He walked out of the 2019 World Cup game against Pakistan in Manchester due to a hamstring injury. Following skipping the home series against South Africa and Bangladesh, the Meerut seamer returned for the T20I series. Kumar again underwent surgery in January for his hernia.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar highlighted his change as a bowler in the last few years, gaining experience by learning variations. The Meerut pacer believes that as much as it’s crucial to add to variations, it is equally essential to perform the bowler’s role to significant effect.
“I have definitely changed as a bowler in the last few years. Most importantly I have gained experience from playing, learnt variations. I don’t think it’s always about keep adding to your arsenal, it is also about being good at what you do,” Kumar said as quoted by Times of India.
I cannot wait to get back in action: Bhuvneshwar Kumar
Bhuvneshwar Kumar feels delighted to be back, having remained away from the game for a while now as injury and pandemic halted it. The 31-year-old feels excited about the IPL and there could not be a better tournament than the extravaganza to begin cricket in India and bring buoyancy amongst people.
“It’s great to be back, personally I have been away from the game for a while, first I was injured and then this coronavirus pandemic put a halt to every sport. I am pretty excited about IPL and cannot wait to get back in action. I don’t think there could be a better tournament than IPL in India to start off with cricket and I am sure it will bring joy to the people of India,” the right-arm seamer added.
