New Delhi: Indian veteran Harbhajan Singh gave a dignified response to his critics. Harbhajan said he always played because he wanted to play and he had nothing to prove to anyone. Let us know that Harbhajan will play for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL 14) this year.
Harbhajan said a big deal
Harbhajan Singh has said he wants to take advantage of all the cricket he has left. Speaking to PTI, he said, “A lot of people think ‘brother, why is he playing’. Oh brother, that’s his thought, not mine. I think if I can play now, I will play. I no longer need to prove anything to anyone. My intention is to show a good game and to enjoy the game on the field. I always have satisfaction after playing cricket.
‘I’m in good shape at 40’
The veteran off-spinner further said, “ I set goals for myself and if I don’t meet them I will blame myself and not just anyone else. I will then wonder if I had made enough effort. Yes, I am not 20 years old now and I will not practice as before. Yes, I am 40 years old and I know that I am still in good shape and that I will definitely do what I need to do to be successful at this level.
Bhajji was worried about the family last year
Harbhajan Singh said of not having played in the IPL last year, “Kovid-19 was at its peak in India when the IPL was held last year. I was worried about my family and then about staying in quarantine when I returned to India. But this year the tournament takes place in India and we got used to new ways.
