Blunt Comment of Sunrisers Hyderabad Seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar

The fast bowler of Sunrisers Hyderabad Bhuvneshwar Kumar is happy seeing the bowling unit of his team take the back seat for a change, with the batters going gung-ho in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 campaign. But, he isn't someone who is going to let the batters take all the credit, as for him, it's the bowling unit that delivers 'championships' while the batting units only provide 'sponsorships'.

In the post match presentation after their victory against Delhi capitalsBhuvi said, “When you’re defending those many runs, we accepted that we will go for plenty of runs. We wanted to keep executing our plans. Just a matter of time before I start picking up wickets and things start going right.”

Bhuvneshwar added, “We know how good Natarajanwith his yorkers, he’s a silent guy who keeps working hard. He’s truly a match winner. Probably the first time our batting has clicked so well in so many years, as a bowling unit we are happy to take a bit of a backseat. We’ll feel like a score like 220-200 is less but yea great that the batting unit is clicking. Conditions don’t matter, they keep doing the same thing even in the nets.”

While concluding his statement he said, “You don’t think much about where the ball is going while bowling in the nets but yes, they give us some nice practice, especially Abhishek and Travis Head. Bowling is something that wins you matches, not sure who said it but they said ‘batting wins you sponsorships and bowling wins you championships’, I think that’s a great saying. The way we executed our plans is great.”
