Hope to hit the Purple patch of my IPL career in this Purple jersey: Harbhajan

Harbhajan Singh has been one of the hottest topics ever since he was picked by KKR in the IPL 2021 auction. After an illustrious career with Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings, the Turbanator debuted for KKR in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday.

Even though he got to bowl only an over in the match, the experienced off-spinner seemed pretty expectant of a great season ahead and insisted that he would try all his might to be his best version for KKR this year!

“It’s been three-four years since I left Mumbai Indians. I was there with CSK for the last couple of years. But this season I am playing for Ami KKR, and I am going to do whatever I had been doing for MI and CSK, and even better to help KKR get the Cup. I am hoping this is my time to be in the purple form! So yeah, good to be in purple,” Harbhajan said ahead of KKR’s match against Mumbai Indians.

Talking about Kuldeep Yadav who hadn’t been his best of form during the India-England series, Harbhajan said, “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.

“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.”
