The new member of Chennai franchise, Harbhajan Singh hopes for a good show by MS Dhoni this season. He thinks the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper is capable of delivering big under pressure.
"Dhoni has been one of those top leaders if we talk about who led India and in the IPL. All those who have led the team, he has been one of the top leaders. He has played six finals of the IPL, which is in itself a big story," the off-spinner told India Today.
Harbhajan knows the former India skipper has not fired in recent times and wants to have some runs under his belt this season.
"Coming to his own form, he must be looking forward to get runs under his belt because he hasn't been scoring that many runs. In the end, when it comes to playing for India, to be honest, he has not been getting many chances as well. In five games, he hardly gets to bat in one or two and those are tough conditions and he is the kind of player, he needed a platform to come early and score some runs."
"He is a class player and he has got the ability to hit six on a good ball and it's going to be exciting to see him back for CSK. I wish him all the luck and I hope captain will score a lot of runs for us and we'll do the needful with the ball to win games for Chennai Super Kings," added Harbhajan.
Mumbai Indians (MI) will face CSK in the opening match of the 2018 edition of Indian Premier League (IPL).
Harbhajan had played for MI for last ten seasons and knows the Wankhede pitch really well. The spinner can be play a major role for the men in yellow in the opening game.
