Sydney: Sunil Gavaskar once again was critical of India’s tour planning after Virat Kohli said in the post-match press conference that they picked Umesh Yadav over Bhuvneshwar Kumar because the latter had not played much four-day cricket off late. This was during the Perth Test match. Bhuvneshwar Kumar didn’t play in any of the Test matches and has now spent 1 month on the bench.
That’s a record for any Indian fast bowler. And given that Aussie pitches suit pace bowling, it is a question that the team management has to answer.
Australian government comes out with tourist data every month and they did the same in the month of December. Bhuvneshwar Kumar spent the whole of December in Australia just touring places and seeing new locations. In fact, he has found some new locations which will be updated by the tour operators as part of the list they provide to customer opting to tour Australia. There are chances that Bhuviu will earn royalty out of it. Even Ravi Shastri believes that whenever a match was nearing its end he used to send Bhuvi to find out a good location to party after the match.
Bhuvi has made an extensive list of Bars, Historic places, malls, and shopping centers to spend time when one is in Australia. He has divided places into categories like suitable for bachelors and suitable for couples.
