Praveen's priorities

V.V. Subrahmanyam

HYDERABAD: Praveen Kumar is determined to look forward and not sulk at missing the 2011 World Cup owing to injury.

“There is no point in thinking about that. It is time to focus on doing well in the ongoing IPL,” said Praveen, now representing King's XI Punjab.

“I am not looking at the IPL as an opportunity to regain my slot in the Indian team. Selection is not in my hands, so the only thing I can do right now is perform consistently,” said the 24-year-old Praveen.

“There is very tough competition for fast bowlers aiming to play for India now. And, I feel this is good.”

Referring to the two wickets off the first two balls of the innings against Chennai Super Kings, Praveen said: “In the T20 format, there is very little scope for error. So, even if you take two wickets and then get whacked around, there is nothing to rave about,” he said.
