A game-changer in his own right, erratic off-spinner Harbhajain Singh said that India is a team full of match-winners and even less talked about players such as the medium pacer Ashish Nehra would be seen turning around games in the upcoming World Cup in the sub-continent.

Harbhajan remarked that “Good thing is, everyone in this team has won matches for us in recent times. So India is in business even with its last men,”.

Harbhajan cites Ashish Nehra as the example who remains most underrated in the eyes of the critics. He explained about his teammate that “Ashish shares the new ball, bowls in middle overs and is economical even in slog overs. He has picked up 59 wickets in the last two years in ODIs and it’s no joke. His wicket of AB de Villiers in Johannesburg turned the tide in our favour. Yet nobody talks about him,”.

Harbhajan actually feels that such indifference and ignorance on the part of critics as an advantage to India for it keeps lesser-known forces of Indian team in prime shape.

He also said that, “Personally for me, the high is to turn out in Indian jersey. That some critics have made a career out of criticising me doesn’t upset me now, these purists don’t realise that flighting the ball isn’t such a clever idea now. You have men like AB de Villiers, Mahela Jayawardene and Younis Khan who would send a flighted delivery soaring into the orbit, you need to plan against batsmen, tailor yourself to situations and conditions. You need to know why the length on Indian pitches need to be fuller, why a little short of length on foreign pitches can aid your bounce.”

“Give me some credit for knowing how to spin a ball. I am nearing 400 Test wickets,” he added.
