Hyderabad: At 37, India’s most experienced bowler Ashish Nehra may fall in the veteran’s category but he is still ruthless and fast enough when it comes to destroying the batting line-ups of opponents.

Speaking to reporters here, the left-arm pacer says the Sunrisers are pressure free. “People have been asking us, are you guys feeling the extra pressure? No, instead it’s more of a responsibility that we would like to win the Cup again by playing some good cricket,” Nehra said.

He added that the team would want to start on a winning note against an injury stung Royal Challengers Bangalore side. “It’s always good to begin on a winning note especially against a team like RCB which boost your confidence and the more you win in the earlier stage it’s better.”

Nehra lauded the performance of Bhuvneshwar Kumar especially in the slog overs. “Bhuvi has come a long way. Initially people used to think of him only as a new ball bowler but he has shown what he can do during the death overs,” he said.
