New Delhi: Indian fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar said that in his debut he did not know the importance of adding speed to his bowling but once he did it helped him retain the swing that was troubling the batsmen.
Bhubaneshwar opened the bowling secret
In the video released on the Twitter handle of his Indian Premier League (IPL) team Sunrisers Hyderabad, Bhuvneshwar Kumar said, “ To be honest, in the first few years I did not feel that it was necessary to add anything to the pace. .
He said, ‘I kept playing and then I realized that with the swing I needed to improve my speed too because bowling at a speed of 130 kmph or less, the batsmen were keeping pace with the swing. So I wanted to increase the speed but did not know how to do it ‘.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar said, ‘Luckily I was able to improve my speed and it really helped me a lot. So if you bowl at speeds not more than 140 km but also around 135 km, then it helps to keep the swing and get the batsman in trouble.
Bhuvneshwar has been battling injuries and has not been named in the squad for the World Test Championship against New Zealand and the five-Test series against England.
Let us know that Bhuvneshwar Kumar has so far taken 63 wickets in 21 Tests, 138 wickets in 117 ODIs and 45 wickets in 48 T20 Internationals.
