Bhuvneshwar Kumar is an Indian international cricketer and right-arm medium-fast bowler who has received praise for his ability to efficiently swing the ball both ways. In domestic cricket, he represents Uttar Pradesh and has played for Central Zone. He began his IPL career with Royal Challengers Bangalore, followed by a three-season stint with now-defunct Pune Warriors India. However, he has received most success for his current IPL team, Sunrisers Hyderabad, which won an IPL title in 2016 thanks to his tournament best 23-wicket haul. He first came to limelight for bowling out legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar for a duck in first-class cricket. He has the unique record of taking his first wickets in each format of the game by clean bowled. While he has proved himself to be a match-winning bowler for India, he is equally impressive with the bat and has played some useful innings.
