Harbhajan Singh is now a part of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) unit and he seems to be very excited. The offie will play under MS Dhoni again and he said it's a great feeling to be led by Dhoni again.
“It’s always a great feeling to play along with MS Dhoni. I’m looking forward to working with him again towards a common goal – this time to win the trophy for the Chennai Super Kings,” he said.
“He (Dhoni) understands the game really well, is street-smart and thinks ahead of the game and I feel that’s very important for a captain, especially in T20. That’s what makes him a great skipper,” added Harbhajan.
Harbhajan had played last 10 seasons for Mumbai Indians and this will be the first time for him playing for a different franchise. “Look forward to exciting times with CSK,” continued Harbhajan.
CSK has a dominating image. They have never missed out play-offs whenever they played. “It’s great to be a part of two strong teams. 10 years with Mumbai Indians was absolutely brilliant, and now to be a part of another brilliant team. Here I come, Chennai! Let’s do it together for Yellow,” he further said.
“CSK versus Mumbai Indians – two top teams – was always a pressure game. No matter how bad the situation, both would continue to fight till the end and create chances. That’s how champion teams play, with a lot of passion and pride,” he concluded.
The 2018 season kicks off on April 7 with CSK taking on defending champions Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium.
“Harbhajan is a proven match-winner in the IPL,” said KS Viswanathan, CEO, Chennai Super Kings. “With his experience and the ability to handle pressure, Harbhajan adds tremendous value to the side.”
