While speaking during the post-match presentation, Bhuvneshwar Kumar said “I think that’s my nature, I wasn’t thinking much about the result in the last over. There was no discussion in the last over, was just focussed on the process. Was thinking just about bowling two good balls, anything could have happened”.

“I wasn’t thinking much, was just focussed on the process. The ball swung so much today, can’t really pinpoint, really enjoyed bowling. Luckily got wickets today. When the season started my thought process was different but it changed when the batters played in such a way.

My thought process changed completely to be honest (from the time the time the season started to today.)”, he added.
