India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who made a return to the squad for the recently canceled ODI series against South Africa, has revealed some funny instances from his personal life, one of which involves his wife.
Bhuvi had recently appeared on a chat show Spicy Pitch, in which he disclosed that he hadn’t used Facebook since his wife Nupur Nagar has hacked the account.
“She (Nupur) asked me for the Facebook password, but I made some excuses. So the next days she tells me that this is your new password. She literally hacked my account, and I have not used Facebook since then,” Bhuvneshwar said on the show.
Bhuvneshwar’s wife Nupur also talked about the ‘jealousy factor’ when the India seamer gets clicked with his female fans.
“When he clicks the picture, I keep telling him that what was the need to stand so close to her. Couldn’t you ask her to stand a little far? And then he says what I could do if they stand close to me.”
The couple also had a funny banter on the show, as Bhuvneshwar jokingly said he was martyred on November 26, 2017, which is the date of his marriage.
Bhuvi revealed that he had a crush on Nupur since he was 13 years old which grew into likeness later on and he eventually tied the knot with his longtime friend in Meerut three years ago.
Bhuvneshwar has been out of action for Team India since he sustained a sports hernia injury last year. He was recently included in the squad for the South Africa ODI series, but after the first match in Dharamsala was washed out, the series was canceled in the wake of coronavirus.
