Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar must be hoping to get some outdoor training time amidst the ongoing COVID-19 situation in the country. Meanwhile, he is connecting with his fans on social media and even turned relationship advisor for one worried fan.
On Sunday, June 28, he conducted an interactive session on Instagram. There, a number of fans had their queries answered. One worried fan asked the fast bowler for advice given that his girlfriend and love of his life was getting married to someone else.
The fan wrote, “Sir, meri girlfriend ki sadi ho rahi hain… Jisa se main bahut pyar karta hu (Sir, my girlfriend is getting married… I love her very much).” Bhuvneshwar replied to the fan and wrote, “Stay strong and keep smiling.”
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been a part of the limited-overs team regularly, but last played a Test against South Africa in 2018. Since then fitness and injuries have led to him losing his place in the team to other bowlers.
In 2020, Bhuvneshwar hasn’t played any cricket. He was set to play for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the IPL, which had to be postponed for an indefinite time period owing to COVID-19.
