Bhuvneshwar Kumar (India's Probable Playin11 for ICC T20 World Cup 2021)

Bhuvneshwar Kumar bashes reports to him not wanting to play test cricket.

Team India’s senior seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar on Saturday slammed all those reports that were claiming that he no more wants to feature in the test format. Kumar denied all the reports saying that he continues to prepare for all three formats regardless of the selection.

A report published by the Times of India this morning quoted that the main reason behind Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s exclusion from the India Test squad for England is his will to not playing the test format anymore.

“Bhuvneshwar just doesn’t want to play Test cricket anymore. That drive has gone missing… To be honest, the selectors don’t even see Bhuvi hungry for 10 overs, forget Test cricket. It’s Team India’s loss no doubt because if one bowler should have made it to England, it should have been him,” stated the report in the Times of India.

The 31-years old pacer took to Twitter to slam the sources claiming a wrong report and suggested not publishing the reports based on so-called sources.

“There have been articles about me not wanting to play Test cricket. Just to clarify, I have always prepared myself for all three formats irrespective of the team selection and will continue to do the same. 

Suggestion – please don’t write your assumptions based on “sources”!,” wrote Bhuvneshwar Kumar in his reply.

The Uttar Pradesh Seamer was not named in India’s 20-men squad for the England tour following which the rumors began to circulate.
