Ranchi, Oct 6 (UNI) Team India pacer Jasprit Bumrah reckons there isn't much difference between an ODI match and T20 however, bowling at the death overs in the shortest format of the game is the most crucial aspect. Addressing the pre-match press conference at the Jharkhand States Cricket Association (JSCA) stadium, Bumrah said,"One day cricket and T20 are slightly different but the situation where I bowl is similar because of the death overs." The pacer also acknowledged the responsibility that comes while playing for India irrespective of the format and said that there is no need for extra drive as anyone loves the opportunity of representing the nation. When asked about the comeback of senior bowler Ashish Nehra into the team, the 23-year-old said that Nehra's vast experience is helpful for the youngsters and he (Bumrah) was quite happy to share the dressing room with him. Replying to a query about the tuning which he shares with pacer Bhuneshwar Kumar, Bumrah said,"We just want to improve ourselves every time, we keep asking questions to each other." "We keep learning from the senior players on what else can be done and how to improve and adapt to different conditions and the wickets," he concluded adding that that there focus was on training and adaptation and not focus on the results. Significantly, the men in blue will clash against the Steve Smith-led Australian side in the first T20I of the three-match series here tomorrow. The Virat Kohli-led Team India will look to continue with their winning run in MS Dhoni's hometown too after beating the kangaroos 4-1 in the ODI series earlier. UNI AK KU 1743
