Calcutta: Architect of his side’s 32-run win over Rajasthan Royals, Bhuvneshwar Kumar described their bowling unit as one of the best in IPL and said the crucial victory will boost the team’s morale and help them turn the tables in remaining matches.
The Sunrisers won two out of five matches in UAE and started their campaign in India with a loss against Royal Challengers Bangalore but Bhuvneshwar’s four-wicket haul on Thursday helped them to bring their campaign back on track.
Bhuvi said the win could not have come at a better time and it will keep them in “good frame of mind” for rest of the tournament.
“The most satisfying thing about this performance is that it came at a time when we needed it the most. We were a bit low on confidence and this win will definitely boost us for rest of the tournament,” said Bhuvneshwar on iplt20.com.
“We have the best bowling line-ups in the IPL and we knew the wicket was not easy to bat on. It was a slow wicket and a turning one and we were confident that we could defend the low score,” he said.
“We showed what we are known for and this will keep us in a good frame of mind for the matches to come.”
