India pacer Navdeep Saini was declared man of the series after India sealed a 2-0 series win against Sri Lanka with a comprehensive 78-run victory in the third T20I in Pune on Friday. Saini picked up five wickets in two matches that were played in the series after the first game was washed out and turned heads with his express pace. Saini is seen as a better red ball bowler in the domestic circuit, but the seamer said that he is now finding it easier to bowl with the white ball.

"When I used to play with the red ball earlier, I used to find bowling with the white ball difficult," said Saini in the post-match presentation ceremony.

"But now after practicing, I have been finding it easier and am improving. My seniors have been helping me as well, telling me how to bowl in different situations," he said.

On Friday, Saini took three wickets for 28 runs, including the match-winning final wicket.

Saini said that he takes care of his fitness while bowling quick comes naturally to him.

"Bowling fast comes naturally to me. I look after my gym and diet and playing for India is a big deal. I have been playing with the red ball only for the last four-five years, before that I was playing with the tennis ball only," he said.
