Working hard on his form and fitness to prepare for the hectic international schedule, Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar said he is not worried about losing pace and focussed on improving his line and length.

“When I started playing cricket, I knew that my physique is not at all like a typical fast bowler. My body language is also different and I am not aggressive by nature thus my focus was always on my skills,” Bhuvneshwar said.

“I don’t run after speed. Obviously, it will be better to have some more pace but I am very well aware that I can’t bowl with the speed of 150 kmph. I am working hard on my technique and variations,” he said.
