India pacer Bhuvaneshwar Kumar became father for the first time after his wife gave birth to a baby girl in Delhi on Wednesday. This is a welcome news for Kumar, who was part of India squad for the home series against New Zealand earlier this week. Kumar lost his father to Cancer in May and then his IPL form also took a tumble. He had a bad ICC T20 World Cup as well where he played just one match—against Pakistan—and gave away 25 runs in his three overs without picking a wicket.
The couple tied the knot in November 2017 in a private ceremony in Meerut. Meanwhile, congratulatory messages poured in from different quarters after the major news was revealed. Bhuvi himself wasn’t by his wife side as he was on his way from Kolkata where he was playing against New Zealand. His mother Indresh and his sister are accompanying his wife in the hospital.
