Bhuvneshwar Kumar might have endured a rough time at IPL 2021 – his economy rate of 7.97 was his worst in a season – but India captain Virat Kohli has brushed off concerns around his form in the lead-up to the Men’s T20 World Cup.
In the UAE leg of the IPL, Bhuvneshwar managed just three wickets in six games at an average of 54 and economy rate of 7.04. In isolation, however, Bhuvneshwar had denied Royal Challengers Bangalore’s AB de Villiers at the death, defending 12 off the last over in Abu Dhabi on October 6. The seamer then missed Sunrisers Hyderabad’s final league fixture with a niggle. Kohli added that Bhuvneshwar was back to his “full fitness” and backed him to come good at the World Cup.
