Fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar on Saturday took to Twitter to denounce reports claiming he no longer wanted to play Test cricket. Bhuvneshwar was not selected from the Indian test team for the upcoming England tour which left a lot of people in shock and caused a huge wave on social media. The fast bowler, in his post, said that “regardless of the team selection” he has always prepared to represent the nation in all three formats and will continue to do the same in the future. Bhuvneshwar ended his tweet with a “suggestion”: “Please don’t write your assumptions based on” sources “!”
There have been articles about how I didn’t want to play test cricket. Just to clarify, I have always prepared for all three formats regardless of team selection and will continue to do the same.
Suggestion – please do not write your assumptions based on “sources”!
