Nowadays, with technology coming into cricket, people start to analyse, and if you only have one or two tricks, people will start to line you up.
I try to keep things simple. Reading and analysing the wicket as soon as possible is important. Sometimes you run after wickets, but I focus on team goals - what the team wants me to do right now.
As a bowler, my motto is not to get too excited and not to get too down after every match.
As a bowler, you have to constantly have to learn new things, and that's been my main aim all the time.
I feel England is the most difficult place for a bowler.
When I made my First-Class debut, my first spell was of 10 overs. So I was always used to bowling lot of overs in Ranji Trophy, which always helps.
I plan and I back myself in whichever situation I'm bowling.
I always try and emphasize on having specific net sessions on 'death bowling.' It is similar to length balls - the more you practice, the better you get at it.
As a kid, I was like anybody else, playing cricket, enjoying it. The only difference is, right from when I can remember, I always used to love bowling.
It is important to have a clear head while bowling at the death, and one has to have self-belief.
Whenever you go to different countries, you learn new things and gather experience.
Dot balls help build pressure, so even if you are not getting wickets, somebody from the other end is getting wickets, and the job is done.
I have bowled with the new ball before when I came into the Indian team in the T20 formats.
Whenever a plan works, it's a good feeling.
Being at the top of the ICC rankings is a matter of great pride for me.
It was always a dream to play Test cricket and get a first five-wicket haul over here.
Self-belief, I think, is my biggest strength. The mental toughness comes into play whenever the chips are down.
Whenever I practise in the nets, I practise each and every situation - be it with the new ball, be it with the old ball, or death bowling at the death.
I want to keep on adding new skills to my armoury.
In four-day cricket, you have to be consistent; you have to bowl in one area.
