Dubai: Playing alongside Dale Steyn and Ishant Sharma, who work up genuine pace, Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar says speed is not his strength and therefore he relies on swing to get wickets.

"My strength is not pace. I rely on swing to get wickets and I continue to do it that way. I have never tried to copy others," Kumar told PTI in an interview on Tuesday.

Asked if playing alongside Steyn and Ishant he ever feels the need to increase pace, Kumar said, "No, I don't think so".
