With the IPL season upon them, most of the franchise and their players are working on the last bit of their preparations. Lot of hard work is happening behind the scenes. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the Sunrisers Hyderabad fast bowler has also shed light on this. Bhuvi knows how tough the competition in the league is and with every team trying to attain well-roundedness, the SRH lead pacer wants the Sunrisers to work on every facet of their game.
Talking to IANS recently, Bhuvi started off by expressing the need to be consistent throughout the tournament, "The team needs to do things correctly"
"Our aim is to win the championship but we know it's not going to be easy because each team is equally good. So we have to do out things correctly throughout the tournament and look for the little things which will make us champions," he further said.
Sunrisers Hyderabad has always come across as a team that likes to keep things simple and on point. Bhuvi talked about this too, "As such, there is no special strategy, but an evening before the match you have a team meeting; you make plans according to the teams. There is still a week to go for the tournament; so, for now, there is no special strategy. But, yes, we are going to make some before entering the meet,"
Bhuvi has the responsibility to lead the attack for the team at the Sunrisers and guide the young bowlers around him. Talking about this inexperience from the other end, he said, "It is not always about the big names in the bowling department. If you look at our bowling, Rashid (Khan) is there, Siddharth Kaul, who has done really well last year, is also there among few young players. So we have a decent bowling line-up which has done well in the last few years. I don't think there will be any pressure or problem regarding the lack of experience,"
"Inexperience doesn't mean that you do not have the experience of international cricket. If you talk about IPL, in the SRH team, players have played the league at least four to five times. So it is more than enough experience to win the tournament," he further added.
There has been an upswing of the fast bowling talent in the country recently and Bhuvi when asked about the potential reasons, stated,"It is difficult to tell the exact reason, but if you see our domestic set-up, it is really good. IPL has also been there for the last 10 years. There are good coaches also; so the credit goes to IPL as well. Yes, it is a shorter format but still gives you the experience and confidence to do well at different levels,"
