Veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has been one of the best spinners to don the India jersey. He has served the country to his best ability and has played against some of the world-class batters across the globe. The 417 Test wickets veteran recently picked the toughest batsmen he has played against across the formats.
Amid the ongoing lockdown due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, the cricketers are spending a lot of time on social media. Recently following the trend, former India and current Mumbai Indians teammate Rohit Sharma and Harbhajan Singh featured in an Instagram Live chat where they discussed on various topics including Indian cricket.
During that chat, the off-spinner from Punjab was asked to pick five toughest batsmen to bowl. Harbhajan didn’t have much trouble in naming them and included two batters from Pakistan and one each from Australia, South Africa, and West Indies.
“Younis Khan troubled me a lot,” said Harbhajan Singh and when Rohit reminded of the Pakistan batsman sweeping him repeatedly, he said: “Yes, all the time, he made me feel crying.”
“Inzamam is also someone I found hard to dismiss. There are many but I would choose these five,” Harbhajan Singh said of the former Pakistan captain.
Apart from these two Pakistan batsmen, Harbhajan Singh picked legendary all-rounder Jacques Kallis from South Africa, Matthew Hayden and Brian Lara from Australia and West Indies respectively. Speaking about his cricket, Harbhajan is currently playing for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. He has played significant roles in the last two seasons and is likely to play a similar role in IPL 2020 whenever it takes place.
