IPL 2024: ‘Thoughtless’ Bhuvneshwar Kumar recalls final over drama in SRH vs RR

SRH’s hero of the night, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, recalled the last over drama from their thrilling win over RR in Hyderabad and said that he was just ‘thoughtless’ while bowling the final 6 deliveries of the match. Bhuvneshwar held his nerve in the end as Hyderabad snapped the winning streak of RR and moved into the top four on the points table.

Bhuvneshwar was adjudged as the Player Of The Match after the 1-run win and said he was just sticking to the process in the end and there was no real discussion regarding the final over. The SRH pacer said that his full focus was on executing the final delivery well and he didn’t think about where the fielder was and what the batter was going to do.

“Ahh… That is my nature. But again, the process is very important. Even in the last over, I wasn’t thinking too much. There was no discussion regarding the final over. We were just focusing on the process. I was not thinking about the result. It was about focusing on the particular delivery. Two good balls and anything could have happened in the last over.”

“I was thoughtless. I know; it was a full toss in the last ball. But he (Powell) missed it, and then you know what happened. I was not at all thinking about where the fielder was or where the batter was going to hit me. My complete focus was on executing the delivery,” said Bhuvneshwar.

Bhuvneshwar would end the day with three wickets.

Enjoyed bowling with the new ball: Bhuvneshwar

Bhuvneshwar would deliver instant success for SRH in the second innings as he was able to get swing and dismissed Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson in the very first over. The Hyderabad pacer said that it was the first time the ball swung so much this season and he enjoyed it.

“The ball swung tonight. It was the first time this season that the ball swung that much. I enjoyed bowling with the new ball. I can’t really pinpoint where the ball swung last. I was lucky enough to get the wickets.”

My thought process significantly changed now with the way these batters are going about their business. I was thinking differently at the start of the season, but it has changed completely. Practically, when we bowled, we were trying to restrict teams to somewhere around 200,” said Bhuvneshwar.

Bhuvneshwar and SRH will next be in action on May 6 against MI.
