The Man of the Match award won in the first Test match against Sri Lanka is surely a wedding gift for the Indian pace bowler Bhuveneshwar Kumar. Now the cricketer has taken a break from the second Test match and will not play the match that will be held in Nagpur on 24th November.
The reason why the cricketer has taken a break from the cricket ground is that the pacer is all set to tie the knot on 23rd November 2017. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is going to marry his girlfriend Nupur Nagar on 23rd November in Greater Noida.
On the other hand, Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan also has taken a break from the ground owing to the personal reasons. On 20 November, the Gabbar Singh of the Indian team released a video post-match on Instagram by revealing the information of Bhuvneshwar's marriage and also congratulated him.
On the other hand, BCCI also has tweeted the information of replacement of Bhuvi and Dhawan.
