Harshal said on the eve of the fourth T20 against South Africa, “To be honest, for the last two years (in IPL) people have been trying to understand how I am trying to bowl.

My focus is to bowl the best possible ball at that time in the match.

And he said that he needs to develop it continuously. “I don’t worry about pace because I can’t bowl as fast as Umran Malik. I have to develop skills to be effective at international level.
