Harbhajan Singh has given India many wonderful and memorable victories with his off-spin. He stayed with the team during that period when Team India was achieving new heights. Harbhajan Singh also played a big role in the way Team India changed its image after Sourav Ganguly became the captain. In his career, this off-spinner saved many memories. He became the bowler to take the first hat-trick in Tests for India. He was also part of the Indian team that won the first edition of the T20 World Cup in 2007 under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. After this, he was also part of the team that won the 2011 World Cup under Dhoni’s captaincy. Now that Harbhajan has finally retired from cricket, these memories automatically come to the fore.
These three moments are not to be forgotten for Harbhajan Singh. He took a hat-trick against Australia in the historic Test match in Kolkata and the team won it. This test is said to change Indian cricket. Harbhajan took 32 wickets in this series against Australia. In 2007, India defeated Pakistan in the final of the T20 World Cup. This match is also special because India defeated its arch rival. In 2011, India was successful in winning the ODI World Cup. India won the ODI World Cup after 28 years. Earlier, India won the 1983 World Cup under the captaincy of Kapil Dev. Harbhajan has chosen his most special moment out of these three after retirement.
this moment is special
When Harbhajan Singh asked about the most memorable moments out of these three in an interview given to news agency PTI, Harbhajan said, “For every cricketer you need a performance, after which people support him and seriously on his game.” pay attention. The series against Australia in 2001 was that moment for me. Had it not been for 32 wickets and a hat-trick against the number one team at that time, probably not many people would have known about me. The Australia series made me exist. He is associated with my existence. It proved that I will not disappear after a series or two. It proved that I am entitled to this place.
He said, “Indian cricket was in trouble after the match-fixing scandal in the year 2000. People had lost faith in the game. To get him back in the stadium and make him love the game, you needed those 32 (wickets) or VVS’s 281 (innings). This was a change that Indian cricket needed. It was magical.”
