The Meerut-born was also quizzed to choose between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo – two of the greatest superstars of all-time in the history of Football. Bhuvneshwar picked Messi as his favourite footballer.

The 30-year-old pacer was even asked to describe former international Yuvraj Singh and current Indian skipper Virat Kohli in one word.


Starting from 2011 World Cup winner Yuvraj, Bhuvneshwar said that the Chandigarh-born is a fighter and an inspiration for everyone.

Bhuvneshwar sustained an injury during a game against Pakistan in the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales. However, now he is completely fit and ready to take the field. The Indian paceman has so far taken over 200 wickets in 21 Tests, 114 ODIs and 43 T20Is.


In the 2020 edition of Indian Premier League (IPL), Bhuvneshwar was ready to show his magic for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), but due to coronavirus pandemic, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was forced to postpone the 13th season of the lucrative league for an indefinite time.
