Bhuvneshwar Kumar happy with the performance this season

After the game, the right-arm speedster said he is totally pleased with his performance in the ongoing season. He further added that wicket column is something one may get lucky or unlucky. 
At the same time, he added that he always looks to bowl the economical overs. In such a case, his teammate may get wickets in the next over. He also highlighted that it is a team game and one just can't always look for wickets and concede runs. At the same time, it is very important to maintain the economy.
"Pretty satisfied with the way I have bowled this season, wickets column is something you may get lucky or unlucky, I always look to bowl economical overs. That way your team-mate may get wickets in the next over. It's a team game, you just can't look for wickets and leak runs, bowling economically is my priority. If I get wickets it's good, otherwise I am doing the job for the team," he said at the post-match presentation.
Talking about Umran Malik, he said, "Umran is young and raw, he's got a lot to learn, he's got that X-factor. The credit goes to the SRH management the way they have backed him. It's easier to drop any guy when he goes for plenty of runs in 3-4 matches continuously, but they backed him and he came back pretty strong."
