Indian seamstress Bhuvneshwar kumar he says he never realized how important it was to add pace to his bowling in the formative years, but once he did, it helped him “maintain that swing” that makes batsmen guess.
“Honestly, for the first few years, I didn’t realize that pace was something to add,” he said in a video posted by IPL SunRisers Hyderabad team on its twitter handle.
“As I continued to play, I realized that I had to improve my pace by swinging, because when bowling at the end of 120 km / h or only 130 km / h, the batsmen adjust to the swing. So, I wanted to increase the pace, but not I knew how to do it …
So far, the 31-year-old has taken 63 wickets in 21 tests, 138 and 45 scalps in 117 ODIs and 48 T20Is.
“Fortunately, I was able to improve the pace and it really helped me in the later stages. So yes, when you have the pace, not the express 140 plus, but the bowling in the middle of 130 km / h helps to keep that swing and stay divination, ”he said.
Bhuvneshwar is worried about injuries and has not considered the upcoming World Cup final against New Zealand in Southampton and the test series of five matches against England.
