“We have a team there who are working round the clock. I am in constant touch with them from Mumbai. We maintain social distancing norms strictly. We have made circles where they stand, away from one another, collect their food and go to their homes,” Harbhajan was quoted as saying by IANS.
Harbhajan Singh passes verdict on MS Dhoni’s participation
Harbhajan, who is currently a part of Indian Premier League franchise Chennai Super Kings, had been vocal about agreeing to play IPL 2020 without spectators. With the cash-rich league officially getting postponed until further notice, one can’t pass any concrete statement regarding its future.
With Harbhajan playing the last two IPL seasons for CSK under Mahendra Singh Dhoni, he was asked if the former captain deserves a spot in the Indian team for the forthcoming ICC T20 World Cup in Australia. While Dhoni’s form in IPL 2020 would have given a hint regarding his comeback, even that chance seems lost now.
Hailing the 38-year old player’s potential and all that he has done for Indian cricket, Harbhajan clearly mentioned that the selectors should pick him if the team needs him during the world event later in the year.
“How do you judge [MS] Dhoni? Do you see his IPL form or give him respect and consider the fact that he is one of India’s greatest players and captains. The guy has done a lot for Indian cricket.
“MS Dhoni is a big big player. He doesn’t need to be told if he is capable or not. So I don’t think you need to ponder too much about it. If you think you need Dhoni, and if he is available, you pick him,” Harbhajan said.
