Virat is a legend: Harbhajan Singh

Virat Kohli is going through one of the best phases of his career and is looking completely unstoppable at the moment but Mumbai Indians’ off-spinner Harbhajan Singh believes that his side has plans to tackle the Delhi boy`s onslaught in case the two sides face off in the Indian Premier League (IPL) play-offs.

With four centuries in the tournament’ Kohli has amassed 865 runs at an astonishing average of almost 87. Hailing Kohli as ‘legend’ the ‘turbanator’ said that they have the required plan to stop the run-machine.

“Virat is a legend in himself. He has been in some different sort of form, it appears he is batting in a different league altogether,” Harbhajan said .

Asked if he has any plans to tackle Virat`s onslaught, the 35-year-old said, “We have planned really well against him. We have got him out in both the league games and also won both the games against RCB.”

Harbhajan said there is no doubt he will take Indian cricket to a whole new level in the next 10 years.

“I have been working closely with him in the last 3-4 months. He is very hard working and always wants to be the best. He has already set a benchmark and is someone who will take Indian cricket to a different level,” he said.

Virat Kohli has received accolades from all corners for his fitness level. Speaking on that , Harbhajan said  that his fitness routines are an inspiration for all the cricketers.

Well, his dedication to the game has been exemplary. He has set the benchmark higher with his fitness standards. Not only juniors, I believe seniors like me are now hitting the gym for an extra workout following Virat’s footsteps. He has been an inspiration for all of us with his training routines,” concluded Harbhajan.


    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
    You will never walk alone.
