(Source: PTI) Related News Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni helped the Indian side on Thursday to clinch a thrilling victory by three wickets in the second one-day match against Sri Lanka in Pallekele after India lost seven wickets for 22 runs.Bhuvneshwar played a 53-run knock to make a 100-run partnership with Dhoni for an unbeaten eight wicket “When I went in to bat MS told me to play my natural game like I play in Test cricket and don’t take any pressure as we had a lot of overs at that time We knew if we played them out we would chase easily” Bhuvneshwar said at the post match press conference in Pallekele “I knew there is nothing to lose in this situation as we were already seven down I was just thinking that I can play and that I have to support MS as much as I can And that’s what I tried to do” he said Sri Lanka’s young off-spinner Akila Dananjaya showed some magic with the ball picking up six wickets for 54 which also included his first five wicket haul in one-day cricket On being asked about India’s collapse Bhuvneshwar said “It was a little surprising because we had a very good opening partnership Then 3-4 wickets fell quickly so it was a bit of a panic situation for us There was no message as such from the dressing room or MS Dhoni He added: “The only thing was they wanted me to play as long as possible I also wanted to do the same thing because that was the only chance to win if I could play all those 47 overs That was my plan” Bhuvneshwar also told about his plan against Dananjaya when he came out to bat in such pressure situation”I had a plan against him” “He is an off-spinner but he was also bowling leg spinners and googlies so it was a surprise for us I just wanted to play him for the wrong one or the googlies which he was bringing in to me And whatever was going away from me I wasn’t really worried about that “Whatever wickets he took that was on the googly the incoming delivery so my plan was to counter his incoming deliveries Initially it was a bit difficult to read him from the hand but later on when I played him for 10-15 balls I could read his variations” he explained Bhuvneshwar got away with a DRS shout for LBW and then went on to attack the Lankan bowlers helping Dhoni from the other end finishing the match with 16 balls to spare “It was a normal plan because we knew that we didn’t need to do anything different We tried that whatever opportunity we get for singles or doubles we will not leave that because by adding singles we wouldn’t reach a stage of needing 6-7 runs per over as we didn’t have many batsmen left We weren’t running extra hard or trying to do anything special We just played normally” said Bhuvneshwar “MS said play as you want to play So at one particular stage I felt that I could play some attacking but risk free shots on which I had full confidence So it’s not like that he gave me any responsibility or asked me to play any big shots It’s just that the stage was such that I had confidence on myself that if I get such a ball I can hit it” he added This was Bhuvneshwar’s first half-century in ODIs and with this he became the first Indian batsman at number nine to score a fifty after Praveen Kumar “I never thought in my dreams that I would score fifty in One-dayers Not fifty but match winning knock because One Day is a kind of format which doesn’t suit my batting as I am not the kind of batsman who can hit big sixes But that kind of situation was perfect for me because it was totally a Test match situation” He also praised India’s bowling coach Sanjay Bangar for his innings “Thanks to Sanjay Bangar he was working really hard on me during the Test series Whenever I go into the nets Bangar helps me to counter those things like I have to go through the last session of a Test So it was same kind of situation and that was a bit familiar for me” he signed off For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Published: September 9 2014 12:05 am Related News The Supreme Court has held the allegations against CBI director Ranjit Sinha to be “serious” and asked him to reply within a week placing his defence on the record in “black and white” The head of India’s premier investigative agency is at the centre of a controversy sparked by revelations that among those who allegedly visited his residence many of them repeatedly between May 2013 and August 2014 were influential accused in high-profile cases of corruption As reports in this paper have shown there is a pattern in the visits by a range of individuals: the frequency with which they called on Sinha increased as CBI investigations against them or their close associates picked up pace The court has suggested that if the allegations are proved to be true it would quash all the decisions taken by the CBI chief during the pendency of the 2G case among other cases Given the gravity of the accusations against him and the seriousness with which the court evidently views them Sinha must step down until he has been cleared In his response so far the CBI director has appeared to stumble on his own explanations He has questioned the authenticity of the entry and exit logs and at the same time claimed there was nothing extraordinary about the visits He has served up a challenge declaring he would “see what the government can do” and also alleged “mischief from inside” Through it all he has skirted the question of propriety As the apex court has suggested these allegations could have a damaging effect on ongoing trials Also at stake is public trust in an agency that has over the years already lost a vital part of its credibility as a body that probes corruption in high places without fear or favour The current controversy over Sinha’s visitors list could further dent the CBI’s reputation at a crucial time — when in the wake of the UPA’s second scandal-scarred tenure the issue of corruption has assumed political centrestage There has been renewed debate in the last year or so over the need to make the CBI genuinely independent of the control of its political masters There has also been public discussion recently on the right balance between functional autonomy and accountability But these important issues cannot be explored much less resolved in the shadow of a controversy like the one that currently engulfs the CBI chief and his office Sinha would be doing a disservice to the institution he heads if he does not immediately do the right thing For all the
