Previous Australian batsman Ricky Ponting said that Harbhajan Singh gave him many butterflies during the Test arrangement on Indian soil in 2001. The three-coordinate arrangement was a memorable one as the host group returned from 0-1 down to win the arrangement. Ponting had an awful arrangement with the bat close by, scoring a simple 17 runs in five innings at a terrible normal of 3.4.
Going down the world of fond memories, Ponting conceded that he experienced issues in confronting the Turbanator. Ponting reviewed the primary Test in Mumbai where he was unable to open his record in the principal innings. Harbhajan discovered his inside-edge and Shiv Sunday Das took a sharp catch at short leg.
“All things considered, Harbhajan is the conspicuous one. I had some fantastic fights with him. What’s more, presumably, usually, he had the better of me. Positively, in Test cricket. I think he has got me out the same number of times as anyone in Test cricket,” Ponting was cited as saying in ‘DRS with Ash’- a show facilitated by Indian all-rounder Ravi Ashwin.
I was attempting to locate an alternate method to play, says Ricky Ponting
“I go out to bat and just pushed forward to one, got an inside-edge on to the cushion, gotten at short leg and I was strolling off reasoning, I haven’t done a lot of wrong there and I am out,” he expressed.
The excusal got to his nerves so much that he began questioning his strategy no doubt. In the arrangement, Ponting gave each way a shot to escape prison yet figured out how to have a top score of 11.
“What’s more, from that Harbhajan Singhmy strategy. Thus, I was attempting to locate an alternate method to play. Also, the following innings, I ran down the wicket first ball and got befuddled. And afterward, I attempted to clear, got a base edge on the first, sprung up to short leg,” Ponting added.
In the arrangement, Harbhajan Singh was the champion bowler, getting upwards of 32 wickets. During the second Test at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, he turned into the main Indian bowler with a cap stunt in Test cricket. Afterward, Irfan Pathan and Jasprit Bumrah would likewise proceed to take cap stunts.
