On a hard wicket it's always hard.

Indian spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who makes a lethal combination with Jasprit Bumrah in death overs, has revealed the success mantra of the Ahmadabad-born pacer.

While Bhuvneshwar has struggled in the T20I series against New Zealand, Bumrah has been brilliant with both the new and old balls.

"Colin Munro has troubled us but others as well".

"As a bowler when you get hit, you learn a lot and so I think after this experience he'll be a better bowler when he comes into the next match", Bumrah empathised with Siraj.

"We were trying our best and Colin Munro was also going berserk and he was also a bit lucky as well because one or two catches here and there would have been different", Bumrah said.

Bumrah has risen through the ranks at incredible pace and given the team management huge flexibility, allowing them to rely on him and Bhuvneshwar as their lead new-ball pair in both T20Is and ODIs while resting Shami and Umesh for the Test cricket. Since then, players from around the world have had time to adjust to him - by now they have had 57 worldwide matches to watch him in and try to pick up his weaknesses. "We complement each other and we always discuss strategies prior to a match".

After the defeat against New Zealand in the second Twenty20 worldwide (T20I), India pacer Jasprit Bumrah said the pitch here was hard for the bowlers.

Bhuvneshwar believes he gains more confidence when he bowls with Bumrah at the death. "We don't plan too much, we saw the wicket and we had a chat with our bowling coach".

When New Zealand prepared for this India tour, the focus of their batsmen would probably have been on tackling spinners on slow surfaces. Trent Boult bowled a superb spell of 4-34 in 4 overs along with which the New Zealand spin duo of Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi kept the Indian batsmen in check with a wicket each and some economical bowling.
