Delhi: Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, India’s fast bowler tied the knot with his wife Nupur on 23rd November 2017 in a private ceremony at Meerut. The couple welcomed their first child – a baby girl today in Fortis hospital, Delhi. The good news came right after they celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary together.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar was on board for the matches as recently as earlier this week as he was part of India’s 3-match T20I Series against New Zealand. He was in Kolkata on Sunday, leading the Indian attack in the final T20I against New Zealand.
The birth of their baby girl came as a blessing to the fast pacer as he was going through a tough phase after he lost his father to liver cancer earlier in the month of May during this year. He also finally returned to the senior national side after going through a lot of injury setbacks.
With the audience having extremely high expectations, Bhuvneshwar had an ordinary Indian Premier League for Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2021. He managed to take just 6 wickets in 11 matches.
However, the senior pacer was picked for the T20 World Cup in the UAE despite poor run of form and he managed to play only one match — the opener against Pakistan. After conceding 25 runs in 3 overs, Bhuvneshwar was dropped and did not return to the playing XI at the World Cup.
