India’s new ball seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar is very confident of his abilities and feels that he can swing the ball more than what others do. Kumar, who played a decisive role in India’s victory in the 2nd ODI against South Africa, also feels that for a swing bowler, the assistance of the condition is a must.

“I believe I still swing the ball, but as a bowler you also need conditions to assist your swing bowling. If there is someone who is able to swing the ball, I believe I have it in me to swing it a bit more than the other bowlers. But I also need a bit of assistance from the conditions to swing the ball. I have not intentionally tried to gain pace in my bowling. It is something that has developed with time,” Kumar said to bcci.tv.

The Meerut pacer also feels that despite not being among the wickets in 2015, he still is bowling well and will be back at his best soon. “I am very confident about my bowling at the moment. As a bowler, there are times when you do not get wickets and you don’t have the numbers to show your name. But never has the thought crossed my mind that I am not a confident bowler and the wickets are not coming my way. If you are confident you will end up getting wickets at the end of the day which is exactly what happened tonight. I did not get wickets at the start of the innings, but we knew that if there were a few quick blows, South Africa would find it difficult to chase the total down. I was extremely confident of picking wickets when the game was well poised and heading towards a tight finish. It was all about being patient and bowling well which would get me wickets.”
