Mumbai: Indian pacer Harshal Patel has spoken about his bowling and his strengths as a bowler in the team. The right-arm pacer scalped a total of four wickets and completely bamboozled the visitors.

The right-arm pacer has now opened up his bowling abilities and the great thing is that he doesn’t need to learn new skills at the pace of the bowling. Also Read: Was Dropped Many Times But Kept Dreaming Of Playing For India: Karthik

“To be honest, people are trying to guess what I have been bowling (in IPL) for the last two years. The longer they play with each bowler, the more the opposition realizes what the bowler’s strengths and patterns are. As a bowler, my job is to stay one step ahead of them. At the end of the day, you can have 15 plans but on a particular day in a pressure situation, if you don’t go out and execute with confidence, everything doesn’t fall in place,” Harshal was quoted as saying by the Indian Express.

“I can’t worry about pace because I can’t bowl fast like Umran Malik. I have to develop the skills to make myself effective at the international level. I have never been an express fast bowler though on a good day I can go near 140 kmph. My focus has always been to develop skills around my bowling and whatever limitations and advantages I have in my bowling,” he added.

He was quite economical as he gave away only 25 runs in 3.1 overs. Riding on his brilliance, India recorded a 48-run triumph in a must-win game.

Harshal made his international debut after the T20 World Cup last year and with more than six months in the international arena, the 31-year-old has taken a total of 17 wickets in just 11 matches at an average of 19.52.

After performing well in the third T20I, the right-arm pacer would like to emulate his performance in the fourth T20I to be played in Rajkot on June 17 (Friday). The final match of the series will take place on June 19 (Sunday) in Bengaluru. South Africa is still leading the five-match affair 2-1.
