Considering the recent reports, Sunil Gavaskar has shared a few things about Bhuvneshwar Kumar while speaking to Sports Today where he said, "The one name that comes to my mind is Bhuvneshwar Kumar. I am not even sure what kind of a future he has anymore.

He has lost out on pace, the accuracy he had at the start where he was getting the ball to move and get the wickets and then again towards the end over, the way he was coming and bowling, that has probably deserted him and it’s time for him to go back to the basics and work hard. That’s the one name that comes to mind."

Moreover, Sunil Gavaskar also stated that the Indian selectors should look at Deepak Chahar who can swing the ball in both ways likewise Bhuvneshwar Kumar does across all aspects of the game.

"I think it’s time to look maybe at Deepak Chahar now. Younger man, who is pretty much a similar bowler, swings it both ways and bat handily down the order," said Sunil Gavaskar.
