Harbhajan Singh playing for Kolkata Knight Riders in their very first match of IPL 2021 is something not a lot of people would have expected. However, Singh got the KKR cap and was seen bowling only one over. Will he feature in today’s match between KKR and Mumbai Indians?
Kolkata Knight Riders started the IPL 2021 on a winning note against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Harbhajan Singh, the veteran of the game was seen playing the first IPL match of KKR but he delivered only one over. Going by the trend of the game, after winning the match KKR management should not think about changing the team. But it is IPL. There are speculations that there could be one change in the KKR line-up against Mumbai Indians.
Harbhajan Singh bowled only one over against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He gave away eight runs in that over. Singh was not brought back for second time to bowl in that match. The captain did not show much confidence in the senior Indian spinner. KKR’s record against Mumbai Indians is devastating which is why there is less chance of Morgan keeping Singh in the side as per Morgan’s last match strategy.
Bhajji on Kuldeep Yadav
Meanwhile Harbhajan Singh showed faith in Kuldeep Yadav. He opined that Yadav will soon deliver for KKR and Team India. “When he entered the Indian team, no one taught him how to bowl. Whatever he did was his own merit reflecting in his bowling. The merit is still there and he has only gotten better with time,” Harbhajan Singh on Kuldeep Yadav.
Harbhajan Singh continued, “There are times when you bowl good spells and yet you don’t get wickets. It happened with all the renowned bowlers. I don’t see anything wrong with Kuldeep. He has been a match-winner and I know he is going to come good for KKR and also Team India soon.”
