Harbhajan and Sachin have played a lot of cricket together and seem like sharing a great bond too. In fact, Harbhajan recently revealed that it was Sachin only who was impressed by the Punjab-born born’s ability during a Mohali net session in 1998. Following which, he boosted the offie’s confidence by saying that he’ll play for India someday.
The prediction proved to be spot on Harbhajan made his national debut in 1998 and the rest his history. With 711 wickets in international cricket, Harbhajan is the highest wicket-taker in Test cricket to date. Well, he might be in the twilight of his career. However, he’s still determined to play T20I cricket for India again.
