Team India have an injury scare at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as Bhuvneshwar Kumar got a tight left hamstring during the match against Pakistan on Sunday. Bhuvneshwar Kumar left the field mid-over during the second innings.
According to the latest update from ESPN Cricinfo, Bhuvneshwar Kumar will not return to the field due to the left string as and India will be forced to exploit their sixth bowler.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar pulled off during the fifth over as he appeared to feel his hamstring during the Pakistan run chase of 337 runs. Virat Kohli was forced to give the ball to Vijay Shankar to complete the over. To everyone’s surprise, Vijay Shankar took the wicket the wicket of Imam-ul-Haq in the very first ball.
It was a good length delivery that nipped back nicely into the left-handed batsman. Imam was trying to flick the ball but was struck plumb lbw in front of the leg stumps. After a long chat with his partner, Imam walked off without taking the review and India got the first breakthrough.

However, Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s absence will certainly play a key role in this high-voltage match.
