Bhuvneshwar Kumar reveals his celebrity crush, favourite cricketer, dream car and much more

Team India’s fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar left his imprint on the cricketing universe with a stunning debut against Pakistan in 2012. Since then, there has been no looking back for this young cricketer.

He rose in the ranks with consistent performances in the domestic circuit and during the Indian Premier League (IPL). Also, there is no denial of the fact that he is one of the best swing bowlers in Indian cricket at the moment.

The 27-year-old, who was the Purple Cap winner in IPL 2017, revealed his favourites on and off the field in an interview with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

In the candid chat, Bhuvi talked about his crush and his favourite cricketer among other things. The wily little pace bowler disclosed about the fact that he has a crush on Bollywood actresses Alia Bhatt and Shraddha Kapoor.
