“I was to bowl my heart out and not think about getting hit.
Speaking about his first spell against RCB, Sandeep, who has mastered the art of bowling in the powerplay overs, said, “I am backing my strength which is to swing the ball. I have discussed and worked with Virender Sehwag regarding field placements. He has helped me and talked to me about what the placements should be with the new ball, since only two fielders are allowed outside the circle and how to use them effectively. I am doing that, and so far it has been working well.”
While talking about his plans for the likes of Shane Watson and de Villiers, Sandeep said, “I had spoken about my plans in the team meeting as well as with Viru paaji. The thing is most batsmen struggle against swing; so he told me to back my strength which is swinging the ball.”
“I was to bowl my heart out and not think about getting hit. Also, I was told never to think about losing my place in the side or being asked to sit out (if I went for runs). Viru paaji backs (his players) a lot,” he added.
