I’ve redefined my strategy: KS Bharat
Royal Challengers Bangalore’s latest star KS Bharat said a change in approach to batting, including not going after every ball, has allowed him to make instant impact in his debut IPL season.
Bharat smashed 78 not out off 52 balls and kept calm under pressure to loft Avesh Khan for a straight six with five needed off the last delivery to chase down Delhi Capitals’ target of 165. It could prove to be a career-changing knock for the wicketkeeper-batter.
Talking about the change in batting approach, Bharat said he has realised every ball can’t be hit for a boundary.

“I was working on trying to know what my strengths and weaknesses are. As you said like the 2018-19 [domestic season], I was just going in with an intent of attacking every ball, but then I redefined my whole strategy.
“You just can’t go bang bang every ball, you have to take your time, you have to work out on the angles, you have to work out on the opponent, you have to work out running between the wickets.
“There are so many different areas which I have been working over a period of time, and it really paid off at a big platform,” said Bharat in a virtual media interaction on Saturday.
