Adelaide, Feb 7: There is good news for Team India and its fans with just 7 days to go for ICC World Cup 2015. Paceman Bhuvneshwar Kumar has declared himself fit and is ready to play the big tournament.
Bhuvneshwar was one of the 4 players (Ishant Sharma, Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja the other three) who were to undergo fitness tests ahead of the World Cup, which starts on February 14. Today, the right-arm bowler has declared himself ready to play.
