Bhuvneshwar Kumar is one of the best fast bowlers in the world, across all three formats of the game. In the last 2 years or so, Bhuvneshwar Kumar aka Bhuvi has worked extremely hard on his bowling and impressed one and all with his control and precision.
During his early days, Bhuvneshwar Kumar used to face a lot of criticism about his lack of speed. He used to bowl somewhere around 130s and that is why a section of some cricket pundits used to term him as a “one dimensional” bowler who was only effective when the ball was new.
But, Bhuvneshwar worked very hard on his fitness and added more yards to his pace. As his fitness and speed improved, he became more and more difficult to face with the new ball because he started swinging the ball both ways at good speed.
Slowly, Bhuvi also mastered the art of bowling good yorkers and Virat Kohli started using him in later stages of the innings. Eventually, he became the most reliable fast bowler in India and his performances in the Indian Premier League (IPL) also started getting better.
Presently, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is, arguably, the best fast bowler in IPL 2018 and he has been doing a great job for Sunrisers Hyderabad. In the match against RCB on Sunday, Bhuvneshwar bowled a brilliant last over and sealed the win for SRH.
RCB needed 12 runs off the last over but Bhuvneshwar did not give anything away to the batters and gave away only 6 runs and also took the wicket of Colin de Grandhomme on the last ball of the game.
