WATCH: Virat Kohli bows down to Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s power hitting

Team India’s medium pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar is well-known for his batting prowess.

The lanky pacer exhibited his power hitting once again when the Men in Blue took on New Zealand in the 1st ODI of the three-match series at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Sunday.


Bhuvi played such exquisite shots that Indian skipper Virat Kohli bowed down in respect for the bowler’s batting effort.

It happened in the 49th over of the first innings, when Bhuvi was facing Kiwi pacer Adam Milne and Kohli was at the other end.

Milner tested Bhuvi with a bouncer with a clear intent to scare him. But the U.P. lad was more than ready for the delivery as he stayed under the ball and muscled it over the long-on, clearing the boundary.

The India skipper who had completed his 31st ODI century, a short while back, was just a spectator to the fantastic shot. Looking at the power and distance on the ball, Kohli could not hold his emotions and just bowed to Bhuvi.
