Raipur: Talented India seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar wants to change the popular perception that he won't be as effective with the old ball as much as he is with the new ball.

"It's true that I have got wickets with the new ball in Test matches but that doesn't mean that I can't bowl with the old ball. Even during the Australia Test series, I have bowled a number of overs with the old ball. I have full confidence that I can be equally effective with the old ball too," Bhuvneshwar told PTI in an exclusive interview.

Bhuvneshwar's comments came close on the heels of Ishant Sharma's view that the Uttar Pradesh seamer is good with new ball while he does better with old ball.
