He is a very important member, we have to take care of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar because he is going to play a very important role in the World Cup in November.
UP (Uttar Pradesh) fast bowler Bhuvneshwar played his last T20 International match in December 2019. Laxman said, “For him to be 100 percent fit, I feel that the management of Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s workload and injury should be given priority and importance.”

He said, ‘The selection of the second opener is a difficult question. Rohit Sharma is certain to be selected in limited overs cricket. I will go with KL Rahul because in the last few months and years, I feel that whenever the Indian team management has fielded KL Rahul as an opener, he has done well at that place.
Shikhar Dhawan is expected to play in the series as a reserve opener despite good performances in the IPL and Vijay Hazare Trophy. Now it is to see what the Indian team management and captain Virat Kohli (Virat Kohli) decide.
