New Delhi: Bhuvneshwar Kumar, India’s senior fast bowler, was selected ICC Player of the Month for his outstanding performance in the ODI and T20 series against England in March. Let me tell you that in these two series, where the English batsmen were scoring tough points over all the Indian bowlers, Bhuvi played very economically.
Bhuvi is coming back well after an injury
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who returned to the Indian squad after nearly a year and a half due to injury, won six wickets in three ODIs against England at an average of 4.65, while he took four wickets in five T20 games at an average of 6.38.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar told ICC after winning the title: “It has been a pleasure to play for India again after a long and painful break. During this time, I worked a lot on my fitness and technique. Looks good for India again with the box office.
The Indians have won all three titles so far
Bhuvneshwar Kumar became the third consecutive Indian cricketer to receive this award. In January, the first prize went to wicket drummer Rishabh Pant while in February Ravichandran Ashwin took the prize.
Besides Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Afghan skater Rashid Khan and Zimbabwean Sean Williams were also in the race.
