Bishnoi said in the press conference after the match, ‘Anil sir has always told me to trust my bowling ability and skill. He told me not to try too many things and be calm and restrained at the crease. The player of India’s Under-19 World Cup team took three wickets for 32 runs in their four overs against the team which had big names like Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.
Asked about bowling against top players, Bishnoi said, ‘We had a long camp before the IPL, I was preparing myself mentally because everyone has the same level of skill. That’s why my focus was on being mentally strong and not afraid. He said, ‘I told myself not to put loose ball because it will make them aggressive against me.’
