Current Indian pacer labeled as the younger version of Bhuvneshwar Kumar


The Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been one of the finest swing bowlers. The Indian team management is in its final stages of determining the combination of players for the coveted ICC T20 World Cup. The former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar recently outlined the similarities between Bhuvneshwar Kumar and current Indian bowler Deepak Chahar. It was noted that there are still some spots up for grabs and Deepak Chahar could be a good option for India. 

“He is your Bhuvneshwar Kumar of today”


“I think they’re testing waters with Deepak Chahar more because of his fitness and if he has a sensational 50-overs series which is likely to happen. When you see him in T20 international cricket, I mean he’s got some phenomenal numbers. So, he is your Bhuvneshwar Kumar of today,” Manjrekar said on SPORTS18’s daily show ‘Sports Over The Top’.

“The younger version of Bhuvneshwar Kumar who can swing the ball both ways to begin with. Maybe not as consistent in the death but that’s the aspect of bowling that’s getting better and better. So, the only thing that will prevent Deepak Chahar from getting into that T20 World Cup playing 11 is (being) very similar to Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar has looked really good. So, they might look for other kinds of seam bowlers but Deepak Chahar is somebody they should keep in mind and he’s got to do something sensational to put his hand up.”
