Harbhajan lauds Kohli attitude

India

Former India spinner, Harbhajan Singh, has praised the attitude of current India Test captain, Virat Kohli, and believes he is the man to lead India into a new era of success.

The former spinner also praised the appointment of his one-time teammate, Anil Kumble, as the new India coach.

Speaking on TV show Aap Ki Adalat, Harbhajan had this to say: "It's good to see the way Virat Kohli conducts himself. I feel this is the brilliant way forward for Indian cricket. Going to play with the right body language, fighting it out for India with a zeal to get the right result, we need such a spirit, which Virat Kohli has,

“Whether it's his own or he may have taken it from me, I feel it's a great sign for Indian cricket, to take India to difficult heights."

The tweaker was positive about the appointment of Kumble, praising his never say die attitude: "Anilbhai is a man I respect a lot. I played with him for many years. I learnt one thing from him in life — 'Don't ever give up'. He was a cricketer with a serious bent of mind. He knows my mischievous nature. I don't think he had any problems with me ever,”

Harbhajan got into the India team at the expense of Kumble, but he doesn't believe there are any hard feelings: "I agree Anilbhai had to sit outside because of me, because in those days I was playing well. I myself felt bad seeing him sit outside, because I was only 20 then, I was doing well, and my captain chose me."
