The 30-year-old Indian right-arm pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar is hopeful on the possibilities of the IPL 2020, he is even ready to feature in this tournament if it shifts outside India.
The present Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) cricketer Bhuvneshwar Kumar is one of the most successful bowlers in IPL history. In IPL history, he has taken 133 wickets in 117 matches. While Bhuvneshwar is the most IPL wicket-taker as an Indian pacer, he is also the only SRH bowler to claim 100+ wickets as he has taken 109 wickets in 86 T20s.
Bhuvneshwar is the only bowler in IPL history to retain the Purple Cap as he won it in 2016 and 2017 seasons. The right-arm pacer played a very important role with the ball in hand during SRH’s maiden IPL trophy win in 2016 edition. In 2018-2019 editions, Bhuvneshwar was the vice-captain of this team, while he led the side in six matches during the IPL 2019 in the absence of the regular captain Kane Williamson.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar: We will play anywhere in the world
The Indian pacer is very excited to experience in the IPL 2020. He is ready to play this tournament anywhere in the world.
Bhuvneshwar said according to ANI, “I hope IPL happens this year, we will play anywhere in the world.”
IPL 2020 was originally scheduled between 29th March and 24th May 2020. But due to the coronavirus pandemic, this entire tournament was postponed for the indefinite period.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is trying hard to organise the 13th IPL this year, and they are ready to reschedule this tournament once the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 gets postponed, which is highly possible due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As the coronavirus is spreading highly in India at present, the IPL 2020 is unlikely happening in India. While Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have wished to host the IPL 2020, the BCCI is reportedly considering hosting this year’s IPL in the UAE. However, nothing has been confirmed yet.
While Bhuvneshwar Kumar is excited to return on the ground as soon as possible, he has no idea when it can be started. His last recognised cricket match was the Mumbai T20I against West Indies on 11th December 2019.
