Bhuvneshwar Kumar made his entry into the Indian team as a new ball bowler who could move the ball both ways, and at a decent pace if not lively.  The first ball he bowled in ODIs to dismiss Mohd. Hafeez  was a gem of a delivery to a right hander, making it’s way out of no where to strike the timber .

But , it was very clear that Bhuvneshwar Kumar was a new ball material. Dhoni used to use most of his overs with the new ball and leaving a few for the death overs. The idea was loud and clear , use him where he is best at. He use to strike big with the new ball and wickets up front  was India’s key to success.

As time passed, India needed more out of him. With Ishant being hammered at the death overs, India needed someone to work there. Shami came up but still  Bhuvi  had to contribute in the death. He couldn’t and it detoriated his new ball form even.

But this IPl has brought hopes for him again. He is not only swinging it big with the new ball but has also made the old ball do the talking.  His has been brilliant with the old ball. Bowling Yorkers outside the off stump seems to be a child’s play for him. He has overshadowed  Dale Steyn in all respects of the game but if one has to believe on Bhuvi, he says that Dale Steyn has been a key to his success.

This IPL has been a good outcome for Indian bowlers  with Mohit Sharma also coming good and is giving Bhuvi a run for his money when it comes to getting the Orange Cup. But , Shami and Ishant Sharma has been the major disappointments for Indian bowling.

The way Bhuvi is bowling, he can be very handy in the upcoming England tour where the conditions will favour his style of bowling, with England considered the best place for swing bowlers. Bhuvi has also  picked up his pace and is now  bowling in the upper 130s, and with swing added to it, is enough to trouble any World class batsman.
