Last updated on Mar 27, 2021, 12:29 pm

Indian international cricketer Bhuvneshwar Kumar is a right-handed batsman and right-arm fast-medium bowler. Bhuvneshwar played his first Test against Australia in 2013. In 2014, he finished the Test series against England as the highest wicket-taker. He even scored three half-centuries.

But injuries marred his selection and he had to work hard to be fit for the Test side. Once he did that, he made a return to the Test side. Bhuvneshwar's scrambled seam delivery is what ultimately led him to cement a place in the Test team.

Let’s have a look at the 5-wicket hauls taken by Bhuvneshwar Kumar in a Test inning.
