Mumbai:

One bowler who consistently performed well for India throughout the Twenty20 World Cup was fast bowler Rudra Pratap Singh.

Twenty20, which is supposed to be a batsman's game, RP showcased the sharpness of bowling attack and made life difficult for batsmen. NDTV caught up with the current bowling sensation in Mumbai.

NDTV: What was the procession like? Had you seen a spectacle like this before? Did you expect it?

RP Singh: We had hoped for celebrations, but this was a thousand times more than what we expected. I don't have words to describe it. As Dhoni said, it is here we realised the meaning our win, amid people who were happier than us.

NDTV: You were in the bus, dancing, having a good time.

RP Singh: Of course, with one crore people around us, I truly felt we had represented the country and won the World Cup, and have achieved something of great pride.

NDTV: Your performance was great, especially in the finals? Tell us something about that match? Had you psyched yourself up?

RP Singh: We made quite a few plans, because plans change quickly in the game. And if plans succeed, we can't ask for more. We concentrated on certain areas. We did not do anything extra like slow overs or yorkers. We marked our areas and bowled.

NDTV: Twenty20 is supposed to be the batsman's game. But the bowlers really proved themselves.

RP Singh: This is a big challenge for bowlers as the game is dominated by batsmen. But somewhere good bowling is good for everybody. So we tried to bowl well.
