“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.
