Indian fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar is definitely not having the best of his times in the past few years. Be it the injury scares, or his exclusion from the team, the player has found it hard to cope with the challenges. Notably, just 10 days before, he lost his father to a prolonged illness. However, now the right-arm pacer has suffered another setback.

Bhuvneshwar and wife reportedly undergoing treatment for COVID-19

If a recent media report is to be believed, Bhuvneshwar and his wife Nupur Nagar are in quarantine at their residence in Meerut after showing symptoms of the COVID-19 infection. It adds that the duo are also undergoing treatment for the same. However, it is worth noting that there hasn't been any confirmation if the couple has tested positive for the virus.

On May 21, a day after the demise of Bhuvneshwar's father, Bhuvi's mother had tested positive for COVID-19. Following that, the rest of family members also took the test but the result came out negative for them. However, the recent developments suggest that the result might have been wrong as Bhuvneshwar and Nupur could feel the impact of the virus on their bodies.

Bhuvneshwar not in India's squad for England tour

The right-arm pacer hasn't been consistent with his appearance for India in international games in the past few years, courtesy his injuries that has always pulled him back. Meanwhile, the amazing pool of young Indian pacers has also played a major role in keeping the bowler at bay, especially in Test cricket. Notably, Bhuvi last played a game in the longest format for India way back in 2018. The pacer also failed to find a spot in the touring Indian squad as BCCI preferred the likes of Umesh Yadav, Mohammad Siraj and Shardul Thakur over him.
