VVS Laxman said in Star Sports’ Cricket Connected, “I am happy that Bhuvneshwar Kumar has regained fitness once again. We have to take care of him. He is going to play a very important role in the T20 World Cup in November. . ”
Laxman says that apart from Jaspreet Bumrah, if there is any bowler in the Indian team who has experience of bowling both with the new ball and in the death over, then it is only Bhuvneshwar Kumar. However, Laxman believes that in the five-match T20 series against England, Bhuvi will get to play at least two or three matches.
