Bowlers needs to be mentally strong to bowl in death says Nehra

Vastavam Web: India bowler Ashish Nehra believes that any bowler needs to be mentally strong to bowl in the death overs.”My simple thinking about bowling in the death, number one is that mentally you have to be very strong. There are so many times I have seen that the first ball you bowl goes for a six, the second ball also goes for a six and you feel maybe this over is going for 25-26 runs,” Nehra, who plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad, told reporters here.”But if you are mentally strong and even if the first two balls go for sixes you can still bowl a 15-run over. Those 5- 10 runs make a big difference,” he explained.

“Everbody’s mindset is different. Yorker is one word which I hear in T20 cricket, the more and more I play. It is very easy to say like everyone says ‘Oh, bowl a yorker!’ because somebody who never bowled, he doesn’t know what it takes to bowl a yorker,” he said.”It is very easy to say go and bowl a yorker. If it’s in my hands to bowl good yorkers I can bowl six. It is not that easy,” he added.”It is not necessary that they will be looking for a left-arm seamer. And it is not that I am on trial. Everybody knows if I am fit what I can do. If the team management, the captain and coach want me and if I am ready and raring to go, and if I am fit then definitely I will play,” he said when asked about the Champions Trophy.Every team likes variety. We have people like Bhuvneshwar Kumar who can swing the ball or Jasprit Bumrah, who is really gold with the old ball. If you do well there is always a scope,” he said.
