A dream come true for Bhuvi

After picking up four wickets to apply breaks on England, medium pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar said on Friday that it was a dream come true for him to bowl at Lord’s.

“It’s a good feeling to play at Lord’s. I have been watching cricket matches at Lord’s from my childhood, it feels so good to come here and take four wickets. But what is more important is to try and get them out tomorrow,” said Bhuvneshwar.

Bhuvneshwar also thanked his state-mate and India pacer Praveen Kumar and South African fast bowler Dale Steyn for his improvement as a bowler.

“Praveen Kumar is my idol and I have watched him a lot from childhood. I had a talk with him before I came here. He is like a big brother. In IPL, Dale Steyn helped me a lot. We didn’t have too many talks, but you can pick up so many things while watching him.”   

The UP medium pacer was also happy that he got Cook early. “He is the kind of batsman who gets a lot of runs if he gets a start. So, it was important to keep him quite.”

England batsman Garry Ballance, who got a 110 on the day, was warned by coach Peter Moores for heavy drinking and dancing without shirt in a Nottingham night club. Ballance said he had learned his lessons.

"I didn't see it coming, and it was a bit embarrassing. I was probably a bit naive, but I didn't really break any rules,” he said.

“I was just having fun after a Test match. But I'll learn from that, and probably won't do it again.”
