The swing king of the Indian pace attack, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, stated that his stint with Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) — one of the most decorated franchises of the Indian Premier League (IPL), has changed his life completely. Bhuvneshwar Kumar joined SRH in 2014 and has been one of the key figures of the Indian cricket team.
Although Bhuvneshwar is known for his economy, a phase came in his career when he was taken for plenty by the batsmen for his lack of pace. He was struggling to do well especially in the death overs due to his lack of pace. But before things could go from bad to worse, he decided to work on his speed and it has now paid off. The right-arm pacer recently revealed why he shifted his focus in increasing his pace, as it would help him counter batters at the death.
Now, Bhuvi has said that a lot of credit for his success goes to Sunrisers Hyderabad and his association with the franchise has changed his life completely.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar Heaps Praise On Sunrisers Hyderabad
“I always had the ability to bowl yorkers but then I lost it. At Sunrisers Hyderabad, they wanted me to bowl at the start of the innings as well as at the end. The 14 matches I played in 2014, I learnt to handle pressure and that was a turning point,” Bhuvneshwar told Deep Das Gupta on Cricketbaazi show.
“I learnt new things, especially handling pressure at death bowling (during Sunrisers stint),” he said.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s International Comeback Halted With The COVID-19 Pandemic
Bhuvneshwar was out injured from the team for a very long time and was supposed to mark his international comeback with the India-South Africa ODI series. Unfortunately, the series was called off by the BCCI amid the coronavirus outbreak after the first game of the series was washed away in rain at Dharamshala.
The last two games were set to be played behind closed doors before the Indian cricket board decided to postpone the three-match series.
Team India has been marred with injuries in recent times. India is one of the busiest teams in world cricket and they follow a very tight schedule across all formats. This has led to a lack of rest for the players and they have suffered from multiple injuries.
