Bhuvneshwar Kumar is happy with the conditions in England; says he is surprised that the ball is swinging for long

Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Six Sports

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is in the prime of his life at the moment.

Since March this year, he has been performing consistently well and is injury-free as of now.

Bhuvi doesn’t like talking much about his injury as he told during the presentation ceremony after India won the 2nd T20I.

One of the surprising things for Bhuvi is that the white Kookaburra ball is swinging for a longer period of time in English conditions.

While in the Test match, the red Dukes ball was getting softer quickly and was also swinging a lot less.

Right now, Bhuvneshwar is enjoying his newfound rhythm and form.

There are very few bowlers around the world who can bowl swinging balls like Bhuvneshwar.

Bhuvi also mentioned that if the ball swings well for him in the conditions, then he looks to attack the batsmen.

This is what he did exactly during the two T20Is against England.

He got the better of both Jason Roy and Jos Buttler by setting them up with his swinging deliveries.

Just last year, there were aspersions cast on Bhuvi’s form.

Bhuvi talked about how injury makes one feel frustrated.

But, he said that he always knew that there is one chance for him to prove himself.

Bhuvi also thanked the skipper and head coach for backing him up.
