The cricket career of India’s right-arm fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been battling injuries for the last two years. The fast bowler had to undergo several surgeries and thus had to miss a lot of matches for India and his IPL franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Bhubaneswar again suffered a thigh muscle injury in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and then had to leave the league in its early stages. Pesar is now undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru and is expected to complete his training next month. However, that IPL will not be available until 2021 which is scheduled in April-May 2021.
An official said, according to what was told by the Times of India,
“He will be able to play only during IPL 2021. Because he has been out of competitive cricket for six months.“
Sports physiotherapist Heath Matthews (who is currently associated with Mumbai Indians) has said that Bhubaneswar is experiencing classic injuries. Mathews said during a conversation with IANS,
“The problem with pesar is that it puts a lot of pressure on the body. For the last few years, his luck is not supporting him and he is suffering a lot of injuries. Sometimes the back strain, the side strain, and sometimes the hamstring strain bother him. This is all in the lower back area, which often creates problems for bowlers. “
Bhuvi is trying to change his bowling style to generate extra speed and swing. Asked if this could be one of the reasons behind Bhuvi’s regular injuries from injuries, Mathews replied,
“Sometimes a bowler who is trying to get extra speed and extra swing takes a few seasons to get it right. Sometimes, the body also takes time to adjust to take on new stress, tries to do new things. “
