“Bhuvneshwar Kumar doesn’t want to play Test Cricket anymore”

According to recent reports, the 31-year-old is focusing more on the limited overs format over Test cricket. Notably, despite being fit and in-form, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was left from the squad for England tour.

According to some former cricketers, his exclusion came as a shock because in a country like England where swing & seam play an important role, the Meerut-born cricketer would have been a perfect arsenal to the Indian side.

A BCCI source was quoted as saying that Bhuvneshwar Kumar doesn’t want to play Test cricket anymore. He’s focusing on the upcoming T20Is. “The drive has gone missing,” they added.
