Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s performances for India against England helped rewrite several records. Bharath Seervi lists the records created and overcome by Bhuvneshwar.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar took six for 82 in the first innings against England at Lord’s. This made him only the third Indian to take a six-wicket haul in Tests at Lord’s. He had taken five for 82 in the previous innings he bowled against England. These were his first two Test innings in England he bowled in and took a five-wicket haul in each of those. He became only the seventh player to take two or more five-wicket hauls in career’s first two Test innings in England and only Indian to do so. The tables below list the bowlers to have attained that feat.
