Chennai: Feb 26, 2013
 
India tailender Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s domestic coach believes the youngster is mentally tough to play long innings.
 
“He has always batted well. He is mentally tough. He has the ability to stay at the wicket. At times, he has even batted one-drop for us (Uttar Pradesh).
 
“So, it is not a surprise that he batted so well at the No 9 position (in the Test match),” Uttar Pardesh team coach Gyanendra Pandey was quoted as saying by MiD-DAY.
 
Bhuvneshwar batted for 167 minutes, scoring 38 runs. He along with Mahendra Singh Dhoni put up a partnership of 140 runs for the ninth wicket. After Dhoni’s dismissal, Bhuvneshwar batted with Ishant Sharma, adding another 26 runs to the total of 572.
 
“Bhuvi has been a regular contributor with the bat for Uttar Pradesh in the last five years. He is very sincere in his efforts and works really hard in the nets on his batting as well. He has a penchant to play long innings,” Pandey signed off.
 
Bhuvneshwar has scored a hundred and 11 fifties in domestic cricket. He made his debut for Uttar Pradesh in 2007. He has also score a magnificent 80 in 2008-09 Ranji Trophy final against Mumbai.
 
His slammed 128 from 253 balls, his lone first-class century in last year’s Duleep Trophy semi-final for Central Zone.
