Bhuvneshwar Kumar, like the other wily Kumar, Praveen, comes from Meerut, a northern Indian town known for swing and pace in critical situation in the match.
Bhuvneshwar operates at a middling pace of early 130s, but India weren't spoilt enough for choices to deny him an international debut season at the age of 22, in late 2012.
Bhuvi, as he’s called, first emerged on the scene in the 2011 season of the IPL when he turned out for Pune. Lean - bordering on weak - with a bowling speed of 125kmph, he didn’t look like a fast bowler.

But now his pace is up to 140kmph, he’s developed his natural ability to swing the ball both ways to lethal levels, perfected the yorker and slower balls and has even added the ‘knuckle ball’ to his repertoire.
The player currently holds the Purple Cap from the 10th edition of the IPL as he led the charts with 26 wickets with an economy of 7.05 (RPO). SRH have retained the player for the season.Kumar was pinpoint with his wide yorkers and slower ones.
The Indian T20 League has been the making of many a promising young player and Jasprit Bumrah is one of them. Featuring for Mumbai, Bumrah first caught the eye with an unusual bowling action. Blessed with the ability to bowl yorkers and get steep bounce off the pitch.
He rose through the ranks to make his way into the IPL and eventually being a star player for his country.The player bagged 20 wickets last season with an economy of 7.35 last season.
Jasprit Bumrah is the sort of bowler India had been searching for long. Someone who is hard to read and distinctly different from the rest, carries with him a definite threat to the batsmen, can both contain and strike and be a game changer.
Bumrah has been in blistering form for the country.He would be crucial to Mumbai Indians' title hopes this season. Moreover, he is the likeliest player to give Bhuvneshwar Kumar an uneasy ride to the leading wicket-taker spot.
Bumrah has his own methods, is an impact bowler and a match-winner.
Less than a month after his 17th birthday, Rashid Khan made his ODI debut on Afghanistan's tour of Zimbabwe in October 2015.
If Afghanistan beat Ireland in their ongoing World Cup Qualifier fixture, Rashid, who is only 19 years old, will have the opportunity to break the record in the tournament final against West Indies on Sunday.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have retained the player for a mammoth Rs. 9 crores in this season's auction in a tug-of-war against KXIP.
The bowlers had made it no walk in a park for the batsman on the sub-continent pitches and the thrill of the game was increased five-fold.
Rashid's rise to the top of the charts is remarkable because he was only the joint eighth quickest to 50 ODI wickets, which he reached in his 26th match. So in his next 17 ODIs, he has taken 46 wickets to get to 99.
