Feels great to be back - Bhuvneshwar Kumar

For India, the win over UAE last evening might just be another win, but for pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, it was much more than just a win. Kumar, who was on a comeback spree, bowled with terrific precision and looked absolutely lethal with the new ball in his hand. Kumar swung a trap around the UAE batsmen and conceded just 8 runs in his four overs.

Speaking to bcci.tv after the game, Kumar admitted that it felt great to be back. “It feels great to get back to playing (in the XI).

When we went 3-0 up, I did get a feeling that I could get a game against UAE. The team management wanted to give a game to the ones who hadn’t played for some time so that every individual is prepared if and when the situation arises,” Kumar said.

Kumar also spoke about his innovative practice sessions and said, “Since I wasn’t getting a game, I was trying to create match situations and conditions in my practice sessions so that when I would actually go out to bowl in a match, I would be better prepared.

I wanted to give my practice sessions a match kind of a feeling be it bowling with the new ball or bowling at the death. If I am in the playing eleven, I know that I am supposed to bowl with the new ball and then bowl at the death. At that time, I know my role in the team could be labeled as a main bowler.”
