    Bhuvaneshwar Kumar the next in line after philander?

    He swings the bowl both ways with a wrist position similar to steyn.
    Bowls around 130kph and is very accurate.... similar to philander.

    and showed his capabilities with the bat yesterday on a green pitch.
    FC batting average is also around 29.

    What you guys think?

    i mean, i think VP took more wickets in his first two tests than BK has in his seven or whatever
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Epic overreaction to what has been a fine series but nothing more so far. I like him and he clearly has real promise but Philander has blown teams away (good teams as well, not England).

    Bhuvi is not going to do well for long. Just look at how he is overused from here on. So much potential, but he'll be made to bowl a lot more than he should, till he breaks down with some serious fitness issues, then it'll be difficult for him to make a comeback since there will be another new bowler who will be hyped and ready to go through the same thing. Forget about Bhuvi, you'll only see Ishant Sharma as a regular bowler in our bowling lineup for the next 7-8 years.

    English batsmen making him look good. Wait 'till he plays a side with their tails up and firing. England's batting is all over the shop at the mo'.

    Shocked that experienced CW.net members were tempted to post in a thread about yet another Indian quick big upped by a fanboi after taking wickets in consecutive Tests.

    He has bowled 18 overs straight in first class cricket.

    even in the one dayers he has bowled first 10 in a row many times.
    Maybe he knows how long he can bowl.

    He isn't the next Philander but I think he will give Indian fans something to genuinely be happy with. I reckon he will have a good career but I doubt he gets a lot of 6 fers.
