Indian seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar continues to remain one of the most impactful swing bowlers for Team India. Although injuries of late have marred his career, his lethal swing bowling never fails to impress.

He has also made a considerable impact for Siunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League, claiming 139 wickets in 126 games at an economy of 7.31, besides winning the title once. However, have you ever wondered how he makes such an impact with his seam bowling?

Revealing the same, Bhuvneshwar said that he had the swing movement in his bowling naturally. However, only a couple of years later, he started bowling that he realised to add pace to it, making his bowling even fatal.

"To be honest, the first couple of years, I didn't realise pace is something that needs to be added. As I kept playing, I realised with swing; I need to improve my pace because bowling in late 120 kmph or just 130kph, batsmen were adjusting to the swing. So, I wanted to increase the pace, but I didn't know how to do it," he was seen saying in a video posted by SRH social media.

"Fortunately, I was able to improve the pace and that really helped me in the later stages. So yes, when you have pace, not the express 140-plus, but bowling in the mid-130 kmph helps maintaining that swing and keep the batsman guessing," he concluded.

Bhuvi is currently limited to the limited-overs format for Team India. Owing to his injuries of late, his Test career has taken a hit. In contrast, he has not considered for the upcoming tour of England, where India is scheduled to play the ICC World Test Championship final against New Zealand next month, followed by a five-Test series against England for the Pataudi Trophy in August.
