Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who is recovering from a side strain and hamstring injury, on Tuesday participated in the Indian team's "skill session" ahead of the first Test against Bangladesh, starting November 14. <p></p> <p></p>Bhuvneshwar had a catching session with the Indian team's fielding coach R Sridhar and then took a part in the team's practice session. The right-arm pacer also bowled a little in the nets, albeit he was not going full tilt as reported by PTI. <p></p> <p></p>The Indian team management, who has been concerned about Bhuvneshwar's injury since he returned from West Indies after the conclusion of the limited-overs series and followed it up with a rehabilitation programme at the National Cricket Academy (NCA), seems to have a taken a charge of Bhuvneshwar's final stage of a rehabilitation <p></p> <p></p>"Bhuvi is here for a skill session with the team. The team management just wants him to get into the groove," a team source was quoted as saying by PTI. <p></p> <p></p>Bhuvneshwar's presence at the net session is seen as a welcome sign as he remains a crucial component as far as India's limited-overs team is concerned. More so as the left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed is still a work in progress and the workload of the right-arm pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been a priority for the Indian team management. <p></p> <p></p>In this light, a fit Bhuvneshwar, with his experience and variations, remains a necessity in India's set up in the white-ball cricket.
