IPL 9: When Bhuvneshwar Kumar ate insects to win a game for SunRisers Hyderabad

New Delhi: SunRisers Hyderabad have been performing outstandingly well in the ongoing season of Indian Premier League (IPL). After nine matches, David Warner-led SRH are at 2nd position in the points table with six wins in nine games.

And if we talk about their bowling line up, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has certainly been their standout performer thus far.

In the 34th match of the IPL, when Hyderabad were hosting Gujarat Lions at their home ground - Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium – Bhuvneshwar bowled his heart out and ended his spell with outstanding figures of 4-1-28-2.

He gave Hyderabad two early breakthroughs in form of Dwayne Smith and Suresh Raina, which helped his side restrict Gujarat to a small total of 126.

In the post-match interview, the seamer revealed that during the match he ate few moths, who were flying all over the park, under the floodlights.

All the players on the field, struggled that day with the same issue as swarm of insects occupied the playing field.

With 13 wickets in nine matches, Bhuvi is at fourth spot among the leading wicket-takers.
