Look forward to exciting times with Chennai Super Kings: Harbhajan Singh

“It’s always a great feeling to play along with MS Dhoni. I’m looking forward to working with him again towards a common goal — this time to win the trophy for the Chennai Super Kings,” Harbhajan Singh told CSK’s official website ahead of the 2018 Indian Premier League season.

“He (Dhoni) understands the game really well, is street-smart and thinks ahead of the game and I feel that’s very important for a captain, especially in T20. That’s what makes him a great skipper,” added Bhajji, who played under Dhoni for India.
Harbhajan, a wily off-spinner who brings with him tremendous experience as a top international performer across formats, will don the yellow jersey for the first time in the 11th edition after having turned out for Mumbai Indians with considerable success in the first 10 seasons. “Look forward to exciting times with CSK,” continued Harbhajan, a multiple-time winner with Mumbai Indians.
The ‘Lions’ won the IPL twice, finished runner-up on four occasions and qualified to the Play-offs in every season between 2008 and 2015 to emerge as one of the most successful franchises in the opening decade. “It’s great to be a part of two strong teams. Ten years with Mumbai Indians was absolutely brilliant, and now to be a part of another brilliant team. Here I come, Chennai! Let’s do it together for yellow,” he further said.
“CSK versus Mumbai Indians – two top teams – was always a pressure game. No matter how bad the situation, both would continue to fight till the end and create chances. That’s how champion teams play, with a lot of passion and pride,” he concluded.
The 2018 season kicks off on April 7 with CSK taking on defending champion Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium. “Harbhajan is a proven match-winner in the IPL,” said KS Viswanathan, CEO, CSK. “With his experience and the ability to handle pressure, Harbhajan adds tremendous value to the side.”
