“Playing the Adelaide Test is a thing of the past. One learns from the mistakes and I tried to work on my bowling and bring in variety. In the last two years. I have changed a lot (as a bowler) and spoke to (Narendra) Hirwani sir and other coaches,” the 29-year-old Vidarbha player said as quoted by the News 18.

Karn Sharma said that his bowling is essentially same but there has been a change of mindset in him which is helping him. He credited Narendra Hirwani for his tips at NCA and said that talking with him has been helping him.

“My bowling is the same, but there is a difference in the mindset. I spoke to coaches on how I can be better in international matches and worked on those aspects. I am working with Hiru (Hirwani) Sir in NCA and that is helping me. Hirwani Sir spoke about mindset and how to play with the batsman’s mind and that is very important,” he added.

Karn Sharma last played an ODI for India in 2014 and has failed to get chances since then. He seemed happy with his progress but he emphasized on the fact that he wants the team to do well.

“I am bowling good and also getting wickets. It is important that the team is winning,” he concluded.
