Veteran India spinner Harbhajan Singh said that it was a bit odd for him to wear the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) jersey for the first time. He joined CSK in 2018 after spending nearly a decade at Mumbai Indians where he won the title three times. He also felt that matches between Mumbai and Chennai are like India-Pakistan encounters.
"First time, it was very strange. I was like 'what is this? Is this a dream?' Whenever we played against CSK, it was like India-Pakistan, it was a tough game. Then suddenly, I was not wearing blue and wearing yellow was difficult. It was very difficult to get used to," he said in an Instagram Live interaction with CSK.
He further added, "Luckily, we played our first match against Mumbai. I was like, 'it was good we got over this match early'. Throughout the first season, it was difficult. After that, we won the trophy. The second season was better."
Harbhajan Singh won the IPL title in 2018 title with Chennai before losing to Mumbai in the final last year. He also said that MS Dhoni has always been a quiet person and was pretty shy in his early days with the team too.
"We have played a lot of cricket together, we have toured a lot of countries together West Indies, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Australia. MS was a very shy guy. He never used to come to our rooms. He used to be on his own. We used to hang out with Sachin [Tendulkar], Zaheer [Khan], Ashish [Nehra] and Yuvi [Yuvraj Singh]. MS was a very quiet guy," Harbhajan shared.
Currently, the whole world has been fighting against the novel coronavirus which has led all the sporting events either postponed or cancelled across the globe. Even the 13th edition of Indian Premier League has also been postponed for the time being as well and it will decide later only.
