Vijaykumar Vyshak – only silver lining in RCB’s hapless bowling attack vs KKR, pacer reveals success mantra

Posted by

New Delhi: Vijaykumar Vyshak, who plies his trade for Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 as a right-arm pacer, stood out from the wayward and clueless bowling attack of RCB against KKR on Friday. The Knight Riders bettered their Chinnaswamy win record against the hosts by seven wickets and Vyshak after the match revealed details on how he came good on a slow Bengaluru track.

The Karnataka pacer turned out to be the only silver lining for RCB in the midst of a hapless and struggling bowling performance. He ended up with the figures of 4-0-23-1 and an impressive economy of 5.8. KKR’s Sunil Narine and Venkatesh Iyer derailed RCB while chasing 183 runs, smashing their bowlers left, right, and centre. Renowned pacers like Mohammed Siraj and Alzarri Joseph were at the receiving end having economy rates of 15.3 and 17 respectively.

Vyshak opens up on his stand-out spell

Speaking at the post-match press conference, Vyshak opened up on what strategy did he stick to on a rather sluggish track like Chinnaswamy. “When I saw in the first innings, uh, they were mixing it up really well. So you know, the ones which were banged in and short and which was slower. It was a little tough for, Virat bhai to score. So obviously if he couldn’t score, I knew that if I put it right there, nobody could score,” he reckoned.

“So I just thought I’ll do that, you know, mix up my variations with some yorkers and hard length and some bouncers. So I was just trying to mix up with the pace, So I think that’s what helped me,” Vyshak added.

This was Vyshak’s first outing in the IPL 2024 after an impressive show in the last edition. The 27-year-old said that he is learning a lot from fellow RCB pacers – Alzarri Joseph, Cameron Green, Lockie Ferguson, and Reece Topley in the nets and that it is helping him a lot while working together with the coaches as well.
