?I know the requirements... I love challenges?

Recommended Posts

Mumbai: On Monday night, Jalandhar?s favourite puttar Harbhajan Singh planned to travel by train to New Delhi before boarding an early morning flight from there to here. As it turned out, the train ride had to be shelved and Harbhajan ended up being driven through the night by a friend. ?Main aur kya karta? Hundreds of relatives, friends and Mediapersons turned up just when I was preparing to leave for the station? I couldn?t take the train and a friend volunteered to drive me (to New Delhi),? he told The Telegraph over coffee and Belgian cookies in his room at the Taj. Speaking a few hours before Team India?s departure for the World Cup, Harbhajan added: ?We?re bound to play better if there?s more josh, but the public?s josh is amazing? And, the tournament hasn?t even begun! If we play the way we did in the recent series against the West Indies and Sri Lanka, we?re going to do very well?? Asked whether Sir Gary Sobers? observation that he could make the difference for India put him under more pressure, Harbhajan smiled: ?Not at all? In fact, it will motivate me even more? Legends give some thought before saying something? Unhone soch samajh ke baat kaha hoga?? A member of the Sourav Ganguly-led XI which played the 2003 World Cup final, Harbhajan said he was ?fully prepared? to (again) shoulder the responsibility of possibly often being the sole specialist spinner out on the park. ?Main fully prepared hoon? Having been around for nine years, I know the requirements? I also know what I?m capable of? If there are times when the team only looks up to me, then it?s something to be proud of? I love challenges and don?t allow the pressure to get to me,? he declared. Team India?s USP, in Harbhajan?s opinion, is its experience ? an awesome 2,207 caps. ?World Cups throw up situations where experience helps? We?ve got lots and that really makes us pretty unique,? he signed off as the travel assistant came to check the weight of his kit bag/?coffin?. With the Sardar supremely confident and conditions expected to favour the slower bowlers, Team India?s opponents had better watch out.
