When Mumbai Indians won the IPL thrice, He played a crucial role by chipping in with the wickets.
“I chip in with my knowledge in whatever way I can help. How to bowl to one particular batsman, and especially I have a lot of cricket here also (Chepauk) also. So that is also something I have been telling them. What are the areas we need to work on and what are the lengths we need to bowl,” Bhajji said during the pre-match conference on Monday.
In the 2013 IPL season, when he was in the Mumbai Indians, he took a total of 24 wickets which was a crucial knock for the Mumbai Indian to clinch the trophy. He also contributed with bat when he smashed the 64 runs of the 24 balls after the top batting line-up was blown away.
He also had a stint with the CSK for two years in 2018 and 2019 which provided him with an edge.
A bowler having such a vast experience will be a great guide to the young spinners. He understands the nature of the ground. On the basis of it, he will be a great support to the bowlers.
“Last two seasons I was with CSK and this time I am with Kolkata Knight Riders… I would like to perform the way I did with Mumbai Indians or even do better. Maybe this is the time to be in purple form.”
“Whenever I see I need to chip in with my knowledge when it comes to talking to the spinners or even batters on how to play certain shots against spinners, I do talk to them and try to contribute whatever way I can. I want to give it all I have to the team so that they can be better at their own game,” said Harbhajan.
