India pace bowler and the ongoing Indian Premier League's [IPL] purple cap holder Bhuvneshwar Kumar declared that will never compromise on his swing at the cost of additional pace on Thursday. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has taken 16 wickets so far for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the season-10 of IPL, believes his swing is his biggest strength and attributed his success to hard work during training sessions. "How you practice in nets matters a lot. If you bowl good yorkers in nets and come up with good variation, it helps your on-field performance," the 27-year-old seamer said in Chandigarh.
"In the series against South Africa my pace had increased but swing was compromised. But this was a turning point for me as I realised that no matter how fast you are, you cannot afford to lose the swing. I worked on this aspect and now I am happy that I have both the speed and swing in my bowling," Bhuvneshwar Kumar added.
