“Playing alongside all of the great players over the years has taught me the nuances of the game, which has helped me become a better cricketer. As a cricketer, I did not have the opportunity to captain the team, but this is something I am very excited about. I enjoy taking the initiative and hope to live up to the trust and responsibility bestowed upon me “Harbhajan Singh stated in an official statement.
Pathan preferred to be refer to as a bowing all-rounder. His all-round abilities are well known, particularly when he name man of the match during the historic finals of the ICC T20 World Cup in 2007.
“You need to enjoy what you’re doing, and giving your all to that effort is all that matters. This opportunity is unique, but I’m confident we as a team will turn some heads. Keep an eye out as we close on team names for the draft,” the Baroda Express said.
