Kumar eyes Lord's return for World Cup final

By Agency

India paceman Bhuvneshwar Kumar has fond memories of Lord's and he hopes to make more history at the iconic venue by playing there in a World Cup final.
The 29-year-old made his mark at the 'home of cricket' by leading the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led India to a famous Test win there in 2014, his first tour with the national team.
Kumar returned figures of six for 82 and struck 52 with the bat but now he wants to be a one-day international star at Lord's by playing there in the World Cup final on July 14.
"I've been here two or three times but I always like coming back to play in England. It would mean a lot to get to go back to Lord's for the final of the World Cup," said Kumar.
"Lord's is always a special place, not just for me but for any cricketer. I have very good memories there, so if we reach the final it will be a very big moment for not just me but for the whole team."
