bhuvneshwar kumar on speed: watch video initially the importance of adding speed to your bowling was not known
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the fast bowler of the Indian cricket team, has said that in his early years he did not know the importance of adding pace to his bowling. Once they did, they helped the batsmen keep the swing in trouble.
In the video released on the Twitter handle of his Indian Premier League (IPL) team Sunrisers Hyderabad, Bhubaneswar said, “To be honest, in the first few years I did not feel that it was necessary to add anything to the pace.”

He said, ‘I kept playing and then I realized that with the swing I needed to improve my speed too because bowling at a speed of 130 kmph or less was keeping the batsmen in sync with the swing. So I wanted to increase the pace but didn’t know how to do it.’
The 31-year-old bowler has so far taken 63 wickets in 21 Tests, 138 wickets in 117 ODIs and 45 wickets in 48 T20 Internationals.
He said, ‘Luckily I was able to improve my speed and it really helped me a lot. So if you bowl at not more than 140 km but around 135 km, then it helps to keep the swing and get the batsman in trouble.
Bhuvneshwar has been battling injuries and has been left out of the squad for the World Test Championship against New Zealand and the five-Test series against England.
