Working hard on his form and fitness to prepare for the hectic international schedule, Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar said he is not worried about losing pace and focussed on improving his line and length.
"When I started playing cricket, I knew that my physique is not at all like a typical fast bowler. My body language is also different and I am not aggressive by nature thus my focus was always on my skills," Bhuvneshwar told 'PTI Bhasha' in an interview.
"I don't run after speed. Obviously, it will be better to have some more pace but I am very well aware that I can't bowl with the speed of 150 kmph. I am working hard on my technique and variations," said the bowler, who is busy with off-season training in Meerut.
He has hogged the limelight with his fine performance in the Champions Trophy claiming six wickets at an economy rate of 3.91 and was included in the 'Team of the tournament'.
He had maintained the form in tri-Series in West Indies where he posted career-best figures of 4/8 against Sri Lanka.
He was awarded Man of the Series in this tournament after he finished with most wickets. When asked about his off season training, he said he is working on his fitness and skills.
"Next season is going to be very hectic so I am utilising this break to work on my fitness and sharpen my skills. I am doing a lot of gym and the stint in NCA has been very beneficial," he said.
"I am working on my swing and yorkers. It is also necessary to mould according to the format like you have to bowl differently in ODIs and test matches," he added. There will be pressure on him considering his fine form
but he is not worried about upcoming South Africa tour as of now.
