MANCHESTER: Indian fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar crashed out of the match after a muscle strain against Pak on Sunday. After Team India's victory, captain Virat Kohli told a press conference that Bhuvneshwar will not be able to play the next 2 to 3 matches due to injury. Mohammad Shami will be replace Bhuvi.
According to information, the seriousness of Bhuvneshwar's injury could be judged from the fact that he could not complete even his third over and bowled two balls and walked out of the field. In his place, Vijay Shankar had to bowl 2 overs. Later, it was reported that Bhuvneshwar will no longer be able to win the match again. After the match, Kohli said, "Bhuvaneshwar slipped on a footmark during bowling. He is out for two or three games but will join the team again at some point in the tournament. He is a very important bowler for us.
At the same time, Kohli said that Shami is very keen to make a place in the team. India's next three matches are against Afghanistan (22 June), the West Indies (27 June) and England (30 June). This is the second major loss for Team India. Shikhar Dhawan has already been out of the team after a thumb fracture.
