9. Bhuvneshwar Kumar
The swing-king of India, Bhuvneshwar Kumar made his comeback after a long period to the international arena. And he did that in style in the series against England. Bhuvneshwar has been impressive in white-ball cricket for India for many years. In the absence of India’s spearhead fast bowler, Jasprit Bumrah, the onus will be on his shoulders to guide the inexperienced bowling attack in the forthcoming ODI series.
Although Bhuvi could only scalp 4 wickets in the 5 matches he played in the T20I series against England but he was very frugal and economical. He kept batsmen quiet in high scoring games which helped India defend totals even after facing the dew factor.
It is no doubt that he will once again be seen leading the pack in the ODI series. With Jasprit Bumrah’s absence, the responsibility on his shoulder will again be high. He would be keen to deliver up to the expectations and mark his return.
