There seems to be good news for the Indian team and their fans as Bhuvneshwar Kumar has returned to the practice sessions and seems totally fit to resume his journey in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The Indian pacer was injured during the CWC 2019 match between India and Pakistan and had to depart to the pavilion during his first spell itself. The hamstring injury forced the 29-year-old bowler to skip the next clash against Afghanistan. However, a recent video by BCCI indicates that Bhuvi is all set to showcase his bowling magic in Team India’s upcoming matches of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
