Bishan Singh Bedi, the slow left-arm orthodox bowler played for India and at present gives good analysis of cricketing matters. Former Indian captain Bishan Singh Bedi praised with full heart about young seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar stating him as cricketer of his kind and prayed that the he stays like this for the rest of his career. Bedi took to micro-blogging site twitter for praising Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been the shining star for India in the present series with his bowling as well as batting performance. The legendary left-arm spinner wants the Uttar Pradesh boy to stay away from the dream world and retain his trademark shyness and continue his performance. Bhuvneshwar became the third Indian bowler to pick a six wicket at Lord’s. Really Kumar is having a great series.

As Bedi stated to him Bhuvaneshwar is his kind of Cricketer and plays well having less  limitations! He hopes Kumar can stay that way & avoid the flash bulbs in his trademark shyness. Bedi also had a word of caution for the slightly built bowler. Bedi cautioned Kumar from spending too much time in the gymnasium to beef up his muscles. Bedi was very glad with Bhuvn’s Allround growth as Indian Cricketer with humble background. May Kumar’s tribe grow manifold was Bedi’s prayer. Please avoid over-gyming Son was the word of caution and to him simplicity was the plus point.


Bedi stated that the Indian team should win the Test match for the centurion Ajinkya Rahane and Bhuvneshwar. To him Rahane’ ton & Bhuvn’s 6 wickets must go towards team winning the match.  He wants the whole team to cheer up and do it for two outstanding performers of the match. Game was beautifully poised for great end as he expects.  Bedi was also praised Rahane’s concentration level. Bedi added that Ajinkya means unconquerableand the man is ‘black belt’ in Karate which helps more in concentration levels! On both counts Indn Cricket must benefit.
