Whats eating the Aussies? They are making Bhuvneshwar Kumar look like a legendary pace bowler. Hard to believe players who see so much pace, swing, bounce cant cope with this medium pacer from Uttar Pradesh.

But what do you guys think of Bhuvneshwar Kumar anyway?

India has this thing about introducing pace bowlers one after another, and them dumping them. Nehra, Agarkar, RP Singh, Dinda, Balaji, Sreesanth, Praveen/Vinay Kumar etc. In the last couple of decades only Srinath, Zaheer Khan got a consistent run. So can Bhuvneshwar cement a place or will he join India's reject folder.

I like the look of b.kumar, think he can be a really good pacer for them.

Great find for the Indian side. He swings the ball in subcontinental conditions and should be handful in England and South Africa. He has great control and also swings it both ways. I think he has all the ingredients to be a fine young bowler. Hopefully Dhoni will monitor his workload because the Indian team has a crazy schedule of matches one after the other.

this kid, yadav and shami ahmed should make a pretty good pace attack for india.
