Former India spinner, Harbhajan Singh, has praised the attitude of current India Test captain, Virat Kohli, and believes he is the man to lead India into a new era of success.
The former spinner also praised the appointment of his one-time teammate, Anil Kumble, as the new India coach.
Speaking on TV show Aap Ki Adalat, Harbhajan had this to say: "It's good to see the way Virat Kohli conducts himself. I feel this is the brilliant way forward for Indian cricket. Going to play with the right body language, fighting it out for India with a zeal to get the right result, we need such a spirit, which Virat Kohli has,
“Whether it's his own or he may have taken it from me, I feel it's a great sign for Indian cricket, to take India to difficult heights."
The tweaker was positive about the appointment of Kumble, praising his never say die attitude: "Anilbhai is a man I respect a lot. I played with him for many years. I learnt one thing from him in life — 'Don't ever give up'. He was a cricketer with a serious bent of mind. He knows my mischievous nature. I don't think he had any problems with me ever,”
Harbhajan got into the India team at the expense of Kumble, but he doesn't believe there are any hard feelings: "I agree Anilbhai had to sit outside because of me, because in those days I was playing well. I myself felt bad seeing him sit outside, because I was only 20 then, I was doing well, and my captain chose me."
