Bhuvaneswar Kumar not to play next three matches due to hamstring injury

India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar will not take part in the next three matches  of the ICC World Cup 2019 matches after suffering a hamstring injury on his left leg. The pacer pulled up midway through his third over and limped off the field during Pakistan's chase of 336. The remainder of the over was bowled by Vijay Shankar, who struck with his very first delivery to send back Imam ul Haq LBW for 7. Kohli, said, "Bhuvi's case looks like a niggle, a case of slipping on the footmarks.

It doesn't look too serious at the moment and looks like he could recover in a couple of games from now, maximum of three games. He is going to be an important factor for us so hopefully he can recover in time. But we have Shami with us and it shouldn't be much of a worry for us. Even Bhuvi doesn't think his niggle is not too bad and that time would heal it."
