This Is The Reason Why Bhuvneshwar Kumar Should Not Have Been Dropped


Bhuvneshwar Kumar is, arguably, the best fast bowler in India, and one of the best in the world. In the last couple of years, he has added yards extra yards to his speed and troubled some of the best batters in the world.


In the first match of the ongoing Test series between India and South Africa, Bhuvneshwar Kumar trouble the Proteas with his swing and good line and length. He was India’s leading wicket-taker in the match and also contributed with the bat.

During the first match, Bhuvneshwar carried himself as the leader of the attack and gave nothing away in both the innings. He also made full use of the swing-frieldnly conditions and took wickets in his first spell, in both the innings.


But, out of nowhere, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was dropped in the second match to accommodate Ishant Sharma in the playing XI. With all due respect to Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is a much better and in-form bowler at the moment. He has been consistently well from the last 12 months and many cricket pundits across the world say that his control on the swing is exemplary.

However, coming to his dropping, Indian cricket fans and cricket fans around the world, were shocked after Virat Kohli revealed that Bhuvneshwar has been dropped. In no time, there was a flood of tweets and comments on Facebook, criticising Virat Kohli and Team Management’s decision.
