New Delhi: As Indian all-rounder Bhuvneshwar Kumar turned 28 today, warm birthday wishes poured in from all the corners.

Wishing Bhuvneshwar a `very Happy Birthday`, batsman Suresh Raina took to his Twitter account and called on the former to keep swinging matches in India’s favour with both bat and ball.

“Wish you a very happy birthday Bhuvi! Hope you have another year where you “swing” matches in India’s favor with both bat and ball! @BhuviOfficial,” Raina said.

Describing Bhuvneshwar as `swing king`, Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad tweeted, “Wishing our all-star swing king @BhuviOfficial a smashing birthday. Looking forward to seeing you bamboozle more batsmen with the ball.”

“Here’s wishing #TeamIndia member @BhuviOfficial a very happy birthday!!” the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said.

While wishing Bhuvneshwar on his special occasion, former cricketer VVS Laxman said that the Indian all-rounder impresses him every time he takes the field.

“Happy Birthday to a Cricketer who impresses me every time he takes the field, @BhuviOfficial . May you keep shining like you have been,” he wrote.

Indian batsman Karun Nair wrote, “A Very Happy Birthday to you Bhuviiii!! @BhuviOfficial Hope you have an amazing day & wish you more wickets in the coming year. Have a Blast !!”

Meanwhile, India opener Murali Vijay wished that Bhuvneshwar continues to swing past this year with more wickets and success.

“Wish you a very happy birthday @BhuviOfficial . Having seen you as a young kid who was trying to find his way, to leading our pace attack, you have come a long way. I am so happy with the progress you have made and wish you the best always,” former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif said.
