Indian Swing master Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave an epic reply in the post-match presentation when he was asked about his injury.
Bhuvneshwar has been in fine form since the South Africa series. After performing fantastically in that home series he continued his form with white Kookaburra ball in the English condition. In the 2nd T20I, he picked up three important wickets of England including the wicket of Jason Roy on the first ball of the innings and England captain Jos Buttler and was adjudged as the Man of the Match with a figure of 3/15. In the post-match presentation, he addressed a few issues.
About getting back his swing:
Bhuvi replied that when the ball swings, every bowler enjoys that. Last few years there was not much swing but this year the swing has come back pretty well.
About removing Buttler:
Bhuvi said that Buttler is a dangerous batsman. If a ball swings, he can execute a plan to a particular batsman and go for the wicket.
About his injury and whether he is fully fit:
Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave an epic reply to that question. He replied that he didn’t want to talk about injuries. Even if in India anyone asked him he would refuse to reply the question. He’s playing, which means he’s all good. He further added a negative thought never came into his mind while recovering from the injury.
About whether he is looking forward to playing Test cricket:
Bhuvi replied that he didn’t think any of those at that moment. But if an opportunity came to him to represent the team in whites he surely won’t deny it. Whenever he would get an opportunity he would try to perform well.
About his bowling tactics:
On his planning, Bhuvi revealed that when the ball swings he always goes for the wicket as it’s tempting for batsmen to attack which certainly raises the chance of wickets. He further added that a perfect combination of inswing and outswing delivery is the best for a swing bowler but most importantly the bowler has to keep tremendous control over the line and length.
