Bhuvneshwar Kumar becomes Man of the Series for Celkon Cup tri series

By Hitesh Jain on Jul 13, 2013 | West Indies Tri Series 2013
After the end of last edition of the ICC Champions Trophy in England, India came into the Celkon Cup tri series alongside West Indies and Sri Lanka as biggest contender for the cup. However, two matches into the tri series, one each against Sri Lanka and West Indies, India saw a perfect anti climax of the above conviction. India was left with two must win games. India eventually got their swing back and reached the finals of the tri series as the top team in the points table.

The final was an M S Dhoni tale. However, the bowling grit of Bhuvneshwar Kumar seemed to have taken a back seat at the time of appreciation. But this was only for some time as Kumar was awarded the Man of the Series title for Celkon Cup tri series tournament for his splendid bowling performance overall the series. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was also awarded the Man of the Match award in one of the four matches India played before the final of the tri series.

The figures which Bhuvneshwar Kumar produced through his bowling were not staggering enough to fetch him the coveted award but were also most welcome for the Indian side, as India had been in search for a quality pace bowler who could deliver on a consistent basis after the heydays of Zaheer Khan faded away in the injury tangles. Bhuvneshwar Kumar took 10 wickets with bowling average, strike rate and economy rate envious to every bowler in the three participating teams.
