Bhuvneshwar Kumar is a right arm medium pacer from Meerut. He made his debut international stage in 2012 when Pakistan toured India fot the first time in five years. In the first T20 international between India and Pakistan in Bangalore, he took three wickets and gave away just 9 runs in four overs. He retained his place in the squad and made his ODI debut in the subsequent ODI Series and bowled out Mohammad Hafeez with his very first delivery.
His Test debut came against Australia in Chennai in 2013 and he helped India to their very first whitewash of Australia in Tests. Bhuvneshwar was one of the lone bright spots in an otherwise wretched tour of England, taking 19 wickets at 26.63, an Indian record for most wickets against England in a Test series. He was dragged down by injury in Australia and played only one game in the 2015 World Cup.
