Bhuvneshwar Kumar was not included in the Indian team for the final of the ICC World Test Championship starting next month. Apart from this, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was also not selected in the team for the five-match Test series against England.
Why was Bhuvneshwar Kumar removed?
Actually, the main reason for not joining Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the team has not been playing in this format for a long time. Fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s recent lack of Test matches was the reason for not being included in the Test team against England.
Bhubaneshwar is not fully fit for the test
The source said, “The selectors feel that Bhuvneshwar Kumar is still not fit to play in the long format, especially for the long tour.” Indian fast bowlers had done better in recent times. The bowlers also performed brilliantly on the tour of Australia.
First class match not played since January 2018
Bhubaneswar has not played a first class match since January 2018. He last played a Test match against South Africa in Johannesburg in January 2018. Bhuvneshwar was then selected for the limited-overs format, but was not considered fit for the Test matches.

He took six wickets in three ODIs. Bhuvneshwar took four wickets in the five-match T20 series against England.
