Bhuvneshwar Kumar keen on IPL happening

(Source: IANS)

India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar believes the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) must happen for ‘both cricketing and financial reasons.’

“The IPL must happen. The tournament is important for both cricketing and financial reasons,” Bhuvneshwar said at a webinar organised by GainAccess Sports & Entertainment and Sportz Power, while also touching upon the saliva debate.

“I hope the ICC comes up with some artificial way by which we can shine the ball. You need to do it when you bowl in swinging conditions in (places like) England. Even the spinners need it.”

“After the first ODI against South Africa (which was washed out at Dharamshala on March 12), we were scheduled to play the second match at Lucknow, but the entire series was abandoned.

“I was coming back to the Indian team after a gap of four months, following an injury. I had then thought it (the problem created by the virus) would be soon over.”
