Finally, the young and hardworking Bhuvneshwar Kumar has proved his worth not only as an effective bowler, but also as a batsman he has impressed one and all. His cool temperament clubbed with a tremendous level of determination has proved very fruitful for team India.
Now, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has become the batsmen to have scored maximum runs in history (121) in any match while batting at number nine position. Also, he has become only the second batsman in the world to score two consecutive half centuries in a match while batting at number ninth position. Last year, Peter Siddle of Australia had made two half centuries in Ferozeshah Kotla ground in Delhi.
Also, in the arena of bowling, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has reached his career best when he took 5 wickets and gave only 82 runs. Now he stands at fourth place in the tally of the Indian cricketers who have scored two half centuries in any match and also taken five wickets. Veteran Vinoo Mankad, Polly Umrigar and Rusi Soorti were other Indians who had achieved this feat earlier.
It is heartening to see a young Indian bowler emerging so quickly. He is capable of spreading magic on the bouncy tracks as well as flat tracks. He will certainly which will encourage others to follow.
