India’s premier fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar on Saturday debunked all the media reports, which mentioned that the 31-year-old is not willing to play red-ball cricket anymore.
The right-arm medium pacer, who has not been included in India’s upcoming overseas tour against England took to Twitter to rubbish the media reports claiming the same.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar on Saturday took to his Twitter handle and said that he has always prepared himself to play for all three formats irrespective of the team selection and will continue to do so.
The right-arm pacer also lashed out at the baseless reports and requested to stop writing stories based on assumptions.
Bhuvneshwar on his Twitter handle wrote : “There have been articles about me not wanting to play Test cricket. Just to clarify, I have always prepared myself for all three formats irrespective of the team selection and will continue to do the same. Suggestion – please don’t write your assumptions based on “sources”!
Notably, Bhuvneshwar Kumar even did not make it in the recently announced 20 man squad for the World Test Championship Finals.
While Cricket experts like Aakash Chopra and Sanjay Manjrekar even expressed that the inclusion of the swing bowler might bolster the arsenal of India on bowler-friendly wickets of England.
In fact, Aakash Chopra had even said that Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s fitness might be the sole reason why he did not make it to Team India’s big squad.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been in terrific form since his return. He showed spectacular performance against England in the T20I and ODI Series.
Meanwhile, the seamer is expected to be included in India’s limited over setup which is scheduled to fly to Sri Lanka for a white ball tournament in the month of July.
