India’s premier fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar will spend some time with his coach Sanjay Rastogi before jetting off to Australia. Bhuvneshwar is currently sharpening his skills at the National Cricket Academy, Bangalore. Meanwhile, the Uttar Pradesh bowler will spend three-four days at Victoria Park before going to Australia.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar was rested from the recently concluded Test series against the Windies. In fact, Kumar is also rested from the first two One-Dayers against the Carribean nation. However, he is expected to return to the squad for the final three One-Dayers. In fact, Kumar was right on the money as he had done well in the Asia Cup.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has done a fine job for India.

“He is currently at the National Cricket Academy. When he comes to Meerut this month, he will spend at least three to four days at the ground,” Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s coach Rastogi told Sportstar on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s coach said there is nothing specific he needs to tell the fast bowler. However, he needs to have a good plan regarding his preparation for the forthcoming tour.

“There is nothing new that I should tell him. He should just focus on his line, length and back his strengths. He will also need to plan according to the wicket and the weather,” he added.

Sanjay Rastogi said Bhuvneshwar Kumar has remained down to earth after savoring success at the International level. The Indian pacer mixes up with the young players and shares his experience.

“He mixes with the youngsters at the academy and shares his experience while training with them. He hasn’t changed,” said Rastogi.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar had to miss the Test series against England due to a back injury. However, Rastogi said that injuries are part and parcel of the game.

“Injuries are a part of the game. You can’t say when it may happen. It shouldn’t bog down a bowler. Many batsmen get injured too.”

India will begin their Australia tour with a three-match T20I series from November 21. The shortest format will be followed by four Test matches.
