Bhuvneshwar Kumar – The Sultan of Swing

Bhuvneshwar Kumar took three wickets on his international T20I debut against Pakistan in December 2012. Bhuvneshwar is the only bowler to take wickets on his first ball in T20I & ODI debut matches. Also, he is the first Indian bowler to take a five-wicket haul in Test, ODIs, and T20Is. Also, Bhuvi was the highest wicket-taker at 11 wickets during the 2022 Asia Cup. Bhuvneshwar played a massive part in India’s Champions Trophy triumph in 2013.

The first of his two Purple Caps in the Indian T20 League helped the Hyderabad team to their only league title. He did even better in 2017 when his 26 wickets in 14 matches came at a stunning average of 14.19 and a miserly economy rate of 7.05. That he has taken just 43 wickets in 56 games since then explains why Hyderabad hasn’t won the trophy again.
