During an interview with a cricket news website, Bhuvi said that he could not even look at Sachin Tendulkar in the eyes after he had got him out and that it was intimidating. The pacer also admitted that when the moment happened, he had no clue how big it was. The 2013 Champions Trophy winner then mentioned that it was only significant once he had seen it all over the news the next day that he understood the significance of that wicket. 

The speedster also added that in a way, everything in his life started after that wicket as people began to know him and every good performance of him until that point suddenly started getting attention. At the same time, Bhuvi to date still remains the only bowler to account for Sachin for a duck in Ranji Trophy cricket.
