‘I don’t think team has such combination’: Harbhajan Singh


A press conference was arranged by the Star Sports Network. The conference was to celebrate the 15 years of IPL. Irfan Pathan and Harbhajan were part of this press conference. Both Bumrah and Jofra Archer are the best bowlers and also injury candidates. The big concern for Mumbai Indians will be the availability of both players. Even if they are available they won’t have enough game time before the start of the tournament.

Harbhajan Singh on concerns of MI

Neither (Jofra and Bumrah) has played much cricket of late and that’s the one thing I am worried about. In terms of their quality, I don’t think any team has such a combination of world-class pacers like Bumrah and Archer. Even if you have just 20 runs to defend off four overs, you may still think you’re in the game with such bowlers

Harbhajan further added that

“However, Bumrah hasn’t played competitive cricket for a while now and we don’t exactly know the issue with his back. Although Archer has started playing again, not sure how lethal he could be.”

The Indian Allrounder Irfan Pathan shared the role of IPL in Indian cricket

“The IPL has benefited Indian cricket in a way that nothing else has,” he said. “There were so many cricketers like Amol Mazumdar, who used to score a truckload of runs in domestic cricket but never got a chance to play for India. But if you have 2-3 good seasons in the IPL, the selectors are likely to fast-track you.”

He also added that

“They will think that if this player can hit Jofra Archer for a boundary so easily, he can also play other world-class bowlers in international cricket.”
