It’s wonderful to share dressing room with legend like Shakib: Harbhajan
40-year old India spinner Harbhajan Singh has mentioned star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan as one of Bangladesh’s legendary cricketers. Both are playing for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
India’s World Cup-winning spinner Harbhajan said he’s been enjoying sharing the dressing room with Shakib. Harbhajan also expressed hope that Shakib will continue his great performance for Bangladesh and IPL team in the future as well.
Kolkata won their first match against Sunrisers Hyderabad by 10 runs on Sunday (April 11).
Answering the question of the journalist, he said in the pre-match conference, “Shakib is a champion player. He has done so well for his country and for his respective team in IPL as well.”
Shakib and Harbhajan are playing for the first time in the same IPL team. Both were in the XI of the first match of Kolkata Knight Riders. The fact that Harbhajan is enjoying Shakib’s company is clearly in Harbhajan’s words and also he wishes Shakib to play well for his country and KKR.
“It’s wonderful to share the dressing room with another legend coming from Bangladesh. He’s always done very well for his teams. He’s a great guy to be around. I wish him all the luck not just for IPL but even in future where he will go and play. I hope he’ll continue to do well for Bangladesh and also for KKR,” Harbhajan concluded.
KKR will face defending champions Mumbai Indians on April 13 in Chennai.
