West Indian pacer Ravi Rampaul, who wreaked havoc on the Indian batting order
on Sunday, said that the rash shots played by Indian players helped his
performance. Rampaul on Sunday took his career-best four-wicket haul to script his team's thumping win in the second ODI.
"I was getting a little swing with the ball so I was just waiting for them to play the rash shots," he said.
Happy with his performance with ball, Rampaul said he hasn't bowled so well in a long time.
"It was the best I have bowled for a long time. I was playing four-day cricket and coming back to one-day, my rhythm and everything went well - today I bowled really well," he said.
The right-arm medium-pacer said he took full advantage of the Indians' susceptibility to short-pitched bowling.
"They weren't too comfortable with the short balls so I used it as a surprise delivery," Rampaul said.
The 24-year-old, who dismissed Gautam Gambhir and Rohit Sharma for ducks in his first over, said he is an attacking bowler and also quite a miser when it comes to conceding runs.
"I'm always an attacking bowler and I think the captain knows that I am an attacking bowler, but I can bowl tight as well," he said.
