I have not lost my swing, asserts Bhuvi

 After enduring a prolonged lean patch, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was back in the swing of things in the second ODI where his returns of 3/41 played crucial role in India’s 22-run win.

While it’s true that Bhuvneshwar has been unable to provide breakthroughs with the new ball, the UP bowler denied that he had lost his swing. “No, I don’t think I have lost my swing,” he reaffirmed. “If you see in the matches that I have bowled in this series so far, the ball has swung in the first few overs of the match. I told this in the past as well that I need conditions to swing the ball. Being a natural swing bowler, my ball will swing a lot more than the other bowlers.

“I need conditions to swing the ball. At times when I have not got the ball to swing, I have tried to reverse swing the ball. It is either swing or reverse swing, you do get it in any case,” he offered.

India’s death bowling came under flak after the first ODI and managed to atone itself by defending 247 in the second ODI. Bhuvneshwar said his death bowling has provided a new dimension to his game.

“Death bowling has improved my confidence as a bowler,” he began. “If I don’t get wickets at the top, I can get them at the death.  IPL has helped me a lot when it comes to bowling at the death. Because of that you have a confidence that you can bowl well at the death in the international level as well. I have been bowling towards the end in the last few matches and I am confident that I can bowl at that stage of the game and give something extra as a bowler to the team.”
