‘I was lucky’: Bhuvneshwar Kumar
Bhuvneshwar recently appeared on a youtube show ‘Double Trouble’ hosted by the wittiest pair of Women’s National team, Smriti Mandhana, and Jemimah Rodriguez. Bhuvneshwar who came into the team as a swing bowling replacement of Praveen Kumar, another lad form in Meerut had an interesting chat with the stars of the Indian Women’s team.
In the show hosted on Youtube, Bhuvneshwar talked about how he dismissed the Indian legend. The former skipper of Sunrisers Hyderabad has given credit to Mohd Kaif’s captaincy, who was leading the Uttar Pradesh squad in the said game. Bhuvneshwar revealed “Generally you think to claim wickets before the start of any game, but you don’t plan to bag a certain number of wickets as it’s not possible. But when it comes to Sachin’s wicket, then I would say I was lucky because the position where Sachin got out was neither short leg nor mid-wicket, so the credit goes to Mohammad Kaif who was my captain at that time. He set the field, and I just bowled, and eventually, it (Sachin’s wicket) happened,”
The wicket turned Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s fortune as he soon became the most talked-about young bowler in the country at the age of 20. Bhuvneshwar Kumar also talked about how he is spending his time during the nationwide lockdown.
