Left-arm seamer Barnider Sran on Friday credited Sunrisers Hyderabad teammates Ashish Nehra and Bhuvneshwar Kumar for his good performance in the One-Day Internationals against Zimbabwe. Sran said that the senior bowlers helped him with the seam movement, while sharing the dressing room in the IPL.

Picking four wickets from three matches, the Punjabi pacer used the in-swinger to good effect against the home batsmen in the series. Acknowledging that he had a lot to prove if he had to be considered for Test cricket, Sran said, “To get there, I need to be consistent and bowl one line and length. I need to improve a lot, I need to improve my pace and fitness level. I will work towards achieving these in the next season,"Sran was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.

Crediting Ashish Nehra and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, he said, “In the IPL, Nehra paaji and Bhuvi bhai were with me, they taught me seam position and supported me in all aspects from the beginning. For two-three days, I went to Chandigarh as well and met my coach Amit Uniyal and worked with him.”

Sran also added that he had worked hard on getting his wrist positioning right to improve on swing bowling.

"I changed the seam position a bit, made some changes to my action because I'm looking to swing the new ball. So I'm not putting in too much effort, because if I do that, I lose my wrist position and it reduces the swing," he said.
