Now I will have the opportunity to interact on my bowling alley with Jasprit Bumrah: Navdeep Saini
GUWAHATI: Navdeep Saini I didn't have the opportunity to share the new ball with Jasprit Bumrah in his six international games and it is not surprising that he is excited about the opportunity to choose the brain of the spearhead of India during the next series against Sri Lanka.

Now I can share my weaknesses and deficiencies with him. I can learn more by watching him play. It will be a good opportunity for me. I'm really looking forward to it, Saini told PTI in an exclusive interview on Friday.
The 27-year-old had a memorable last year when he made an impressive debut in white ball cricket, as he hopes to put in those yards to consolidate his place in a highly competitive bowling attack before the Twenty20 World Cup in October.
Our bowling attack is the strongest right now and that gives me that extra motivation. And that I have to work even harder to ensure a regular place, he said when asked where he looks in the Australian team that is heading to the World Cup. .
Known for his fiery rhythm, Karnal's man in Haryana impressed with figures from 03/17 on his international debut on the West Indies tour last year.

I'm just preparing my preparation, said the nervous rhythm about his 3-0-10-2 dream spell in Cuttack when he cleaned up Roston Chase with a mortal New Yorker and also represented Shimron Hetmyer in shape.

Saini is aware that it is very difficult to secure a place with so much competition in the ranks.
From now on, every game and series is important to me. If I do it well, I can also grow well as a cricket player and the team will also win. I don't think too far. I always take one game at a time and think about giving my best every time.
All my hard work was worth it and I had a successful 2019. It's about putting that extra mile back to secure my place.
For Saini, the challenge will be to strengthen himself mentally when the hitters go on the offensive.
It's about becoming mentally strong. It all comes down to the fact that how strong you are mentally. You can work hard to be strong mentally.
