Bhuvneshwar also revealed that he met Nupur, his wife, back in 2001. They tied the knot in 2017.
Talking about cricket, the Meerut-born seamer was all set to make his comeback to the national team after three months during the ODI series against South Africa, but the limited-overs leg was postponed due to COVID-19 outbreak.
Bhuvneshwar had regained the top spot in the Indian side in 2018-19, but another injury ruled him out of action. He missed the ODI series against West Indies, T20Is against Sri Lanka, ODI series against Australia and complete tour of New Zealand.
Courtesy his back issues, Bhuvneshwar hasn’t played a Test for more than two years now. He was a part of the Test squad for Australia tour but didn’t get a place in the playing XI. He was dropped from the Test squad for the West Indies tour after the ODI World Cup in England and isn’t expected to be back in red-ball team for now.
